It is a joy for me to bring you these reports. Each place on this earth where God has called us to ministry has been a challenge in one way or another. Ecuador was like a burning ember that never seemed to catch fire, until now. God has answered many prayers for this country and South America, and the key men God has brought to us. Now, a fire is ignited in a few hearts that cannot be quenched because God’s Spirit is clearly at work.
They have received the new English revision of the “God’s Plan for His Church” (GPHC) manual and are working to get it translated so that the Spanish version can be printed in January 2018. Pray for clarity in the translation. Several of the church leaders from the first GPFHC group of graduates continue to meet every Wednesday. One of the graduates has a new group in his neighborhood that is well on its way to becoming a new church.
As I write these reports, my mind turns again to the example of the church at Thessalonica. Paul and Silas were there for only four months, but these new converts had received the gospel “in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction” and this happen through “much affliction” (1 Thessalonians 1:5-6). Our efforts will be empty unless they are empowered by the Spirit. We want to “turn the world upside down” (Acts 17:6) through effective ministry! Please pray for this kind of effectiveness through NFI!
