Missionaries—The Wuertz family returned to Ecuador last week and the Rices, along with new missionary, Sheri Beck, will be coming to Ecuador a week from today, September 9.
Lighthouse—Tom started a two-part series on husbands and wives yesterday. Six people came forward to pray for a better marriage. Winter vacation is over and it’s back-to-school time. Our attendance was up to near normal yesterday.
New home groups—We have a new Wednesday night home group as well as Tuesday night group meeting. These are led by laymen from the Lighthouse. I was so blessed as one of our recent converts prayed at the opening of the meeting, “Thank you , Lord, for the opportunity to be here to learn more about God, to draw close to you in faith, and to give you thanks for your blessings.” It was a simple prayer, but you could sense it was from his heart. Nothing is more exciting than seeing baby Christians hungry to know more about our great God.
Safety—We are so blessed that our team has had no serious accidents or illnesses recently. We acknowledge the protecting hand of our God around us and ask you to pray it will continue to be so. We thank the Lord, and we thank you for your prayers and for your heart for Ecuador.
Altar Cristiano relocation—Pray that the plan to relocate this congregation in Guayaquil will go smoothly. Pray for the congregations and for Pastor Mazzini and Viejo. Pray for wisdom for Tom as he meets with the pastors to unveil plans.
