How a Passion for Children is Changing a town.

Please pray for this new church as they continue to bring God's light in the town of 5,000 people.  250 children are enrolled in compassion program and they have been given permission to enroll 80 more. San Miguel is on the Sierra Centro District and Mario Paredes is the District Superintendent. 


The Peoria Illinois, Work and Witness Team finished their time of ministry and arrived safely home yesterday,  They worked in the small town of San Miguel in the mountainous and poorest Province in Ecuador. The team continued the work on the the Nazarene Church plant that has a significant children's ministry. The work included laying block, electrical, plumbing, and installing the roof. VBS with the children was another part of the ministry. 

Pastor Alex and Cynthia shared that how after two years of working with the children, a confidence has been achieved where both children and their parents come for help and prayer for their needs.  God has worked through their ministry to repair marriages and reunite families. Words cannot describe the passion that Pastor Alex and Cynthia have for the children. The team was inspired as Alex shared through tears his testimony of how he prays for the 200+ children by name as he walks through town on his daily errands. 
He is a man of God whose lifestyle is showing the love of God.  While the team shopped with Cynthia she would greet and talk with parents along the way.  The pastors are raising up a great group of lay leaders.
