Ecuador - General Team

Jul 7 2023 - Jul 19 2023

We are excited to share our opportunity to visit our ministry partners in Ecuador. We will be visiting our friends in El Recreo near the port city of Guayaquil and on the coast in San Vicente. We will be working on a home build in San Vicente, evangelistic outreach, home visits, and working with the over 500 kids that have in their programs.  In El Recreo we will be working with and additional 500 children and their families. We will be doing home visits to share the Gospel and bring much-needed staple food items. We will be involved in light construction on their new education facilities as well. The people of Ecuador are warm, inviting, and full of life.
