During the early days of October, we helped host a team of pastors and church leaders from the Covenant’s East Coast Conference on a first-ever-for-Ecuador “Revision Trip.” A Revision Trip is a for pastors and lay leaders to visit on of our global sister churches to learn from them. Possibly, their church is in a place where they would like a new start or a new initiative or maybe even a whole new vision. The Revision Trip provides them the opportunity to travel and to learn from our international sisters and brothers in Christ and how they are ministering in their context. In this way, they can learn something new and hope to find a way to apply it to their own church and ministry context. As mentioned earlier, this was a first of its kind trip for Ecuador. The other missionaries and us along with IPEE leadership had the opportunity to host this wonderful bunch. Unfortunately, their time got cut a little bit short as the protests had begun right when they arrived. We felt it was best for them to leave to head home early rather than to get stuck in Ecuador for an extended time.
