Here is an accounting of our journey from the family farm in Maine to the harvest fields in Ecuador, South America and back again. The purpose of this blog is to give you updates on what our great God is doing through Crossworld and us. We are currently located in Maine.

Let the Little Children Come
"Permit the little children to come unto me,..."
Ministry on the Porch
Most afternoons there is activity on the porch. Children come for help with homework or for an activity to do. Diana is ready with coloring pages that have a Bible theme that can be talked about. Pray children will come to know Jesus as their Savior.
We are holding two Bible clubs during the week, one for those who don't read yet and another for those who do. We are studying the life of Moses at present. Pray children will see their need to be saved.
Teaching English in Borja
Teaching English has given us a lot of opportunities to get to know local children and some of their family members. Recently one adult came and asked us to teach her how to pray. Her mother-in law came to Adult Bible study this week. We would love to see a member of this family come to know the Lord!
Classroom in El Chaco
Our friend Gemma needed help this week in her classroom in El Chaco. Diana was able to teach a Bible lesson and Bible song to the children. This visit may open another opportunity to help with English teaching at the school of 400 children. There is not a doctrinally sound church in El Chaco at present. El Chaco is a community of greater than 10,000 people. Please pray with us that God will send someone with a heart to serve the Lord in El Chaco.
Teaching English in Sumaco
Sumaco is a very small community that has a two room school with one teacher. We were asked to teach English classes to the eleven children who attend. Pray this will give an opportunity to bring the Gospel to the people of Sumaco.
