What He has done through us!
FLET PROGRAM IN “CAPULISPUNGO”
Ten faithful students are about to complete Level 2: Eight intensive courses which cover Bible Summary, Pentateuch, Jeremiah, The Life of Pablo and his missionary journeys, and Ephesians. This group, led by Alan since 2016, includes pastores and leaders from 4 different communities: “Capulispungo,” “Lirio,” “Tixan,” and “Chismaute Telán.” We pray to continue with this group, and future plans may include ministering with them in other communities.
Pablo Copa, one of the students, is leading a small group of 3 in “Capulispungo.” These few are studying FLET Level 1, which covers the life of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew.
SINGLE MOTHERS IN “SHOBOL LLIN LLIN”
It all started when some of their youth asked us to do a youth conference in the church. Then the leaders asked us to teach them how to lead home groups. After a couple of months, the leaders came to us with a formal petition: Please help us disciple a group of single mothers. They weren’t sure how to handle the group and were looking to Faby for leadership in this area. So Faby now disciples a group of seven single mothers. They have met in the church, in our apartment, and in our home in El-Tingo for a weekend retreat. Faby has a natural gift in working with these women, and we pray for their spiritual maturity.
TEACHING ETHICS IN SCHOOLS
God gave Faby the vision to work in the schools in the Quichua communities. In “Cachisagua,” we talked with the director about teaching “Ethics” and he gave us the opportunity to meet first with the teachers, then the parents, and finally with the students. We even hosted some of the teachers in our home in Quito for a weekend retreat!
TWO VISITS FROM FOURTH PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
This summer we were blessed by two visits from Fourth Presbyterian Church, located in D.C. The first group came in June and visited two communities: “Shobol Llin Llin” and “Cachisagua.” The youth from D.C. enjoyed getting to know their Ecuadorian counterparts through outings, church services, a day-retreat, and visiting one of their schools.
The second group came in August and visited “Shobol Llin Llin” and “Capulispungo.” But they were able also to directly participate in a VBS in a very, rural community called “Quislag” where 100 children gathered for bible classes, games, crafts, and sports during five days.
Both groups returned impressed with the Ecuadorian culture, hospitality, and new friends they had made.
