Our church here in Manta has been focusing on the Great Commission through the preaching on Sunday mornings. I preached this past Sunday (August 1) to conclude the series and emphasize the need for more laborers. Pray that our people respond in obedience and that some would dedicate their time and lives to Gospel ministry.
In continuing our survey trips, we are praying that God would lead us to “faithful men” (2 Timothy 2:2). We have plans to visit two more major cities over the coming weeks and months.
I have continued Bible studies with J_____. He has been attending church about every other weekend due to his work schedule. Additionally, one of our neighbors and her fiancé have been attending church faithfully for about a month now. It has been encouraging to see the Lord bless our ministry even as we focus on language learning.
We enjoyed celebrating Weston’s third birthday and had a small party for him with his neighborhood friends. We are thankful for this opportunity to continue building relationships with the Ecuadorians.
