The short term team in Ibarra has hit the ground running. After their orientation and prayer adventure on Thursday, Friday was filled with prayer, event prep and a kids event in the neighborhood of Azaya.
They started the morning with a prayer service led by Rebecca and Diana. This is really awesome because Diana is a leader from the Ambato, Ecuador church plant who asked if she could come and volunteer with the May project. So, not only are our church planting and short term missionaries ministering and evangelizing with the Ibarra church leaders, so is Diana!
It was a powerful time of worship and individual prayer. The rest of the morning was spent in preparation time, preparing skits, sorting project supplies, sorting clothing to be given out at the afternoon event, and a little bit of down time after a big day Thursday.
Here’s a quick photo of the team this morning on the public bus en route to the soccer field. The girls’ teams are playing each other first, then the guys.
Pray with us for the guys and girls in the soccer tournament, that they would be interested in the church and desire to learn more about the Lord.
