Cuenca—We enjoyed a great time of worship yesterday at the Lighthouse. We wrapped up stewardship month and celebrated with all those who had birthdays in August. A highlight was that two ex-prisoners that Lydia has worked with "inside" for the last three years were there with their families! One of those families was there for the very first time. The other has been coming regularly for about seven weeks. Pray for continued transformation in these dear ladies.
Wuertz—George and Sheree will be returning to Cuenca this week. Please keep them in your prayers as they travel from the USA with three boys.
Missionary retreat—Pastor Jim Vermilya and Jarvis Ferguson will join with our Ecuador missionaries for a retreat to be held September 25-27, on the outskirts of Cuenca. Pray for traveling safety as well as a time of relaxing and refreshing.
