In May of last year, our prayer request for Ecuador included an explanation of what we call “The Quito Factor,” and we include it here as a reminder of the importance of our praying for South America. We sensed God’s desire to use the churches of Quito in powerful ways throughout all of South America and beyond. We called this move of God’s Spirit, “The Quito Factor.”
Our training manual, God’s Plan for His Church, has just been translated into Spanish, and Tim and Randy are going down to celebrate the launch of this new and needed training. There are around 442 million people who speak Spanish, which is the second most spoken language in the world. Mandarin is first, and we just finished that translation as well!
I hope you see that this trip and your prayers are most important! There are still some minor details we are working on to resolve before printing and our arrival on the 25th. We are all pressing in that every people group on the earth will be reached with the Gospel IN OUR LIFETIME! This is why we pray…this is why we go!
“The Quito Factor” -
Quito has a history of great mission outreach. In 1931, Clarence Jones started World Radio Missionary Fellowship, which brought the gospel via the airwaves to closed countries during the Cold War. But in the 1930’s, most doubted that the Andes Mountains would be a good place for radio. Jones, however, followed God with bold faith. Today Quito is considered the prime spot in the world for radio, and only God knew it in 1931. This trust in God is The Quito Factor.
Several miles from Quito, in the 1950’s, Jim Elliott, Nate Saint and three others gave their lives to reach the savage Huorani tribe, who after their deaths, came to faith in Jesus. Their sacrificial faith is The Quito Factor!
With a history like this, we believe God wants to use those in Quito for a bold new movement bringing God’s Plan for His Church to the entire continent of South America…and to the world. Empowered by God’s Spirit and committed to God’s Word, these leaders are THE QUITO FACTOR! Let us join in prayer for South America…for THE QUITO FACTOR!
Please PRAY for:
1. Fresh Wind of the Holy Spirit to blow upon key Ecuadorian leaders who are taking God’s Plan for His Church throughout the region surrounding Quito. Their passion is that South America would become a strategic center for Christ’s mission to the world.
2. This is a very short, but strategic trip. This movement needs revival and renewal. May God do it!
“And the word of God continued to increase, and the number of disciples multiplied greatly…” (Acts 6:7)
