Hechos 29

Posted by on November 28, 2011

While you all were celebrating with family, friends and turkeys last week, we went off to Santa Rosa, Ecuador to be at Hechos 29, which means Acts 29.  It is a bible school and cultural exchange as students from Sweden and Ecuador come together to study God’s word and look into ministry.  Joel had the privilege of being one of the teachers in the school’s last week of classes.  He taught on the topic of “Called and Sent” as the students were preparing themselves to be sent from their school back to the homes.  It was a powerful time as many of the students will be future leaders in the church.  We had the opportunity to get to know and counsel Karin (pictured below) who is actually from Chili and is discerning her call to Youth Prison ministry.  It was a wonderful time to see and be a part of a great ministry that they have here in Ecuador.
