God Given Opportunities

Local and Foreign English teachers
We witnessed what God is doing through those willing to step out and serve Him here in Ecuador this past week. Many thanks to Jonathan, Mark, Chris and Clay for their willingness to leave their families and the comforts of home. The group had already established an English teaching opportunity in the local high school during previous trips to San Francisco de Borja. We actually met them for the first time this trip.

Praise the Lord for two days of HS English classes given last week. We paired off into three teaching groups and gave 5 classes each. Dan and I had a great time sharing our stories with students and one of the teachers. It is an answer to prayer to have opportunity to connect with the youth of this area. The school is lacking two English teachers at this time. Would you pray about joining us; teaching English as a second language?

February Praise and Prayer

Praise the Lord Enid is studying the Bible and doing "My New Life in Christ Lessons".

Dan is preaching the next two Sundays in Baeza. Pray he will effectively communicate God's word to those in attendance.

Pray for the weekly Bible study in Borja. We have been reconnecting with families and are learning of many difficult circumstances people are facing. Please pray these difficulties will bring spiritual growth and a desire to love Jesus as never before.

Please pray I (Diana) will have balance in helping people socially and spiritually. Many have physical needs right now.

Pray for Clay, Mark and Jonathan coming from Tenn. in Feb to help teach english in the Catholic High School; give leadership classes to a group of believers in Baeza and connect with us in ministry here in Borja. 

God's Hand has been witnessed in the all that transpired in Mikala's development, birth and death. May God be praised for His provision to the family. He has provided spiritual, emotional and tangible support. Thank you all for letting God use you in this way. We appreciate you tremendously. We look forward to blessings God has in store for us as we continue to follow His leading. Thank you for your prayers and please keep praying for our family, especially Mark and Alicia, as we continue to process the separation from Mikayla. It is still difficult spiritually, emotionally and mentally.
