Back to School
Lately, people have been talking a lot about the transition back to school. A couple of weeks ago, we heard a good exhortation for young people to prepare their heart and mind for the challenge of living out and sharing their faith among their peers at school. We know this is difficult in the U.S. Imagine how difficult it must be in Loja, Ecuador, where only an estimated 0.1% of the people know Jesus as their Savior.* As everyone gears up for classes to begin in Loja in September, please pray for the students who know Christ and desire to share their faith with their classmates.
We thank God for the new ministry partners we have discovered since our last update. It is exciting to see God uniting people through a common vision to see lives transformed by the power of the gospel in the "Forgotten Province" of Loja, Ecuador.
Here is an update on our support:
Recently, we have discovered that some people had already made the decision to partner with us, but had not sent a response form. If this describes you, please let us know by responding to this email or via our blog (see "click here" below). We are anxious to begin the ministry to which God is leading us in Loja, but will not be able to purchase our tickets until our monthly support is raised. So we rejoice over every new ministry partner we discover. If you haven't yet done so, would you prayerfully consider partnering with us in ministry to the "Forgotten Province" of Loja, Ecuador?

May God bless you in your journey today,
Jeff & Terri
