Sembrador Church in Guayaquil

Sembrador Church in Guayaquil - translates to the "Sower Church" 
We encourage you to help us pray for our Guayaquil Sembrador church. They are in their first year renting with option to purchase a building that increases their space more than ten times. This church, using the Master's Plan is our fastest growing church in Ecuador. District Superintendent Eduardo Meza is the pastor. Here are the before and after pictures of their present church.
This is where they first started meeting.
This is where they are meeting presently.  They rent part of a
warehouse and have made many improvements.  Next they
want to put a fallen ceiling in for sound purposes.

The 80+ children meet on the first floor during the church

Sierra Centro District Christmas Lunch


Chimborazo Mountain

All the pastors and their families of the Sierra Centro District enjoyed a day to reflect on the past year. Over 80 people attended the luncheon and enjoyed some time in the swimming pool and playing soccer. The families were given gifts and the children received their Samaritan's Purse shoe boxes. The pictures are the pastors and their families. There were 6 new pastors added to the district this year. . District Superintendent Mario Paredes along with his wife Mayra and their children helped plan and serve all the families.  It was a clear day and the snow capped mountains were very visible.
