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.

On October 16, Pastor Darwin Moreira was ordained for the ministry as lead pastor of Iglesia Bíblica Bautista de Manta. Pastor Darwin has been a part of the church since beginning to follow Jesus in 2005, back when the congregation had just started meeting. He has served for 6 years as assistant pastor and recently led the launch of a new congregation near Manta. We are excited about the future of the church under Darwin's leadership.

Gratitude Sunday at IBB Manta

October 9 was our Domingo de Gratitud, gratitude Sunday. We had an awesome time of prayer, testimony, and meditation on several Bible passages that express gratitude.
Everyone had an opportunity to write about their gratitude to God for those who have helped our church, our city, and Ecuador after the April earthquake.
