Prayers:

  • The churches in Ecuador remain closed & cannot hold services, Pastor Honorato is able to host services on Facebook.

God Story:

  • We had a “mistaken place” client two days after Christmas who was planning for an abortion at 9 weeks. She had a beautiful ultrasound picture that day. The client advocate working with her felt as though she was losing her, and the client got up to flee. In her last attempt, the Client Advocate said, “It seems like you’re having a hard day, may I pray for you before you leave?” She turned and stared, then burst into tears and sat back down. God was with them both that day, and we are happy to say she chose LIFE!  She came by to see us this past month and told us that her life has done a 180, and she’s proud of herself for choosing life and surviving pregnancy during a pandemic. To God be all the glory!

  • For Pablo, Marcella’s brother who has been living with them. He has recently rented a house for their family.
