Rains FamilyThe Journey Has Begun!

Autumn is in full swing here in the high country of North Carolina. The leaves are beginning to change colors, and we look forward to seeing the beautiful colors that this area is known for during this season of the year.   This change of season reinforces in our minds the change of ministry God is leading us into, which we shared in our previous email.  We look forward to serving in leadership development with SIM in Loja, Ecuador, as soon as we can raise the prayer and financial support we need.  We are thankful for the opportunity to share the vision God has given us for ministry in Loja with two churches in September and for the encouragement we have received from many people. 
We are very grateful for the people who have already joined our support team:

  • Prayer:  20 people have officially signed up  (our goal is at least 100).
  • Monthly support:  $305  (5% of our required support).
  • One-time expense:  $1,470  (4% of our one-time support needs).
We are thankful to have made this progress in our journey back to Ecuador.  We believe that others are praying for us regularly that have not communicated with us yet.  However, we chose not to make any assumptions about prayer partners.  So if we have not received a response from you in the last couple of months and you would like to be a part of our prayer team, please let us know by email (jeff.rains@sim.org) or by visiting the Prayer Support page on our blog.

You can find information about our Ministry and Support Needs on our blog as well.  We have added new information recently. Please take a few minutes to check it out and let us know what you think.   Thank you!

May God bless you in your journey today,

Jeff & Terri

Thank you for your interest in the ministry to which God has called us in Ecuador!
