Making Disciples of Christ in Ecuador

Merry Christmas: Matching Gift Opportunity!

  • Published in Blog


Isn't God amazing?! It's only been a few days since our last newsletter but we have a donor who offered to match our special gifts up to $5,000! 

We love, appreciate, and need our monthly donors. You all are really a foundation for how we're able to do our ministry in Ecuador. Thank you. If you are thinking about becoming a monthly donor, we also thank you.

This matching gift is for special gifts, or year end donations, which will be used for general expenses such as plane tickets for our family of 5, renewing our visas, and even give us a head start as we look to purchase a vehicle in Ecuador in 2019. All of this helps us to do the ministry God has called us to in Ecuador.

How do you do that?  Just click on the button over on the right side that says Donate Here.   

Thank you,

Josh, Karen, Aletheia, Benjamin, and Joy 

PS.  Here is a thank you from our church in Loja:

I wrote this poem while thinking about a message I was going to share.  Karen recorded me reading it so I thought I'd share with all of you.  - Josh


Alone In a New Country

Have you ever made multiple phone calls and no one answer and then think, "Is this phone working? Do I even exist?" It seems like when we go a while without real interaction with people we begin to doubt. The other day I was reading a book about crossing cultures and ran across this quote.

“Because I speak no Portuguese,” Moritz Thomsen wrote of a trip through Brazil, “and have chosen to move through those parts of [Rio de Janeiro] where tourists do not go, I find after a few days of not speaking that I have begun to doubt my own existence”

I know it's just the beginning of November but I'm already hearing and seeing Christmas stuff. So maybe it's not too soon to start thinking about the events surrounding the birth of Christ. Here is an aspect of the wise men coming that I never noticed before.
