Easter Sunday in Manta


Our dear friend, missionary Jeff Davoll, was invited to speak at Iglesia Bíblica Bautista de Manta, on Easter Sunday. He shared this picture with us, and said there was a full house! We're happy to hear a good report and to see some of our dear brothers and sisters in the photo. It is reassuring to know that the church belongs to Jesus Christ and he is building it whether we are there or in the USA.

April 2017 Prayer Report Happy Easter!



Lots has been going on in Manta!

In March, students from the KC, MO area came from Pleasant Valley Baptist Church to serve alongside the young people from IBB Manta. They did some great work at the La Revancha church and well over 150 people in the community participated and heard the Gospel at the outreach opportunities.

In April, Dr. Chuck Lynch and his wife Linda, visited Manta to teach a seminar on Biblical Counseling. We had great reports of the impact of all that they shared.

We are very grateful.

You can also read our latest prayer report. Easter Sunday, April 16, is the anniversary of the huge earthquake. We're thankful for all that God has done in our ministry since then.

February 2017 Prayer Report


We are in Florida, staying at the mission house of Palm Springs Drive Baptist Church. Pastor Scott Carlson and the church here have been ministry partners for many years and part of our lives for even longer.

One item for praise is that Iglesia Bíblica Bautista de Manta celebrated its 12th anniversary of ministry! The church has grown in many ways during the past year, and we thank God for it.
This prayer report also covers our plans to continue our ministry in Ecuador through multiplication of disciples, servant-leaders, and local churches.

A Sunday Send-off


On Sunday (October 23) our church in Manta gave us a great send-off before our trip to the USA. In the morning several church ministry groups made presentations, special music, and skits. The church presented us with some very special gifts of remembrance and expressed appreciation for our ministry in starting the church in 2005 and leading it until the present time.
In the evening a delegation of people from the church were at the airport to see us off with many blessings and warm embraces.
We will be spending some time in the USA visiting ministry partners and planning the next stage of our work in Ecuador. We ask for God's guidance and wisdom for the next steps of our journey. We also pray for God to bless the ministry of Iglesia Bíblica Bautista de Manta under the leadership of Pastor Darwin Moreira.
