A NEW MINISTRY
An indigenous Quechua community.
My friend and Ecuadorian brother, Carlos Ruiz, has shared with us a personal ministry and burden that he has for a Quechua community that is 2-1/2 hours outside of Quito. When Carlos first met them, there was no Christian evangelical church within the 7 surrounding communities of indigenous Quechua. The communities are very poor and basic with very few to no public resources.
Right now, Carlos has just finished helping them build the main sanctuary and wants to shift his priority. They have many needs, among those needs, the pastor has asked for himself and his 3 elders to be discipled spiritually, due to the limited nature of the seminary they are currently attending. Carlos has asked our family to aid him and his family in this personal ministry. We have prayed for and visited this community over the past 2 months. Now, Carlos and I are in the middle of structuring the discipleship and could use your prayers on this.
The last time we visited, the pastor asked if it was possible to help bring a Christmas to the 200 children in his communities. We were lost for words and committed it to prayer since we are only 2 families doing this on our spare time. We know that God has unlimited resources and a plan for these people, so please feel free to pray over this situation as well.
