Ecuador Elections

Posted by on February 28, 2017


Shortly after seeing the U.S. elect a new president and then in January our denomination here, IPEE or the Covenant Church of Ecuador, now we are seeing a new president elected for the country of Ecuador.  On February 19th, we had our national elections and were electing a new president after three terms with a president, Rafael Correa, who has brought a lot of economic stability to the country.  There was a lot of uncertainty with the election and the days following.  We are a smaller developing country who went through a lot times of economic and political instability in the 90’s and 2000’s.  The current president has had us more on the right track even though the low oil prices have thrown us into a recession.  It looks like we’ll be having a second day of voting in April between the two candidates who received the most votes as no one received the necessary 40% needed to win.  Please be praying for Ecuador and these elections as we are going through a time of great instability.  Read more here:
