We are traveling

Joy will be teaching Stewardship in the Otavalo Women's Institute next week. Then we are off to Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua for the next two weeks to meet with staff there.

More High Power Soccer

Wow! A team from Hillsboro, Oregon Alliance Church came to Ecuador and worked with us to present High Power Soccer to the Carcelen Alliance Church. Here are some photos to look at.

The youth of Carcelén are dedicated to service and helped with this program very well. They had already done two other Vacation Bible Schools earlier this Summer.

What is exciting is that this has been the most effective program that we have ever seen to present the gospel to children so that they can understand and share it with others. Soccer is the drawing card to bring in unchurched children. It worked. We had a very small group - perfect for learning. Forty children signed up and 15 of those made professions of faith.

This church is faithful in training children, so they will get a good grounding.
