Today Andy and a team of two other staff and 5 Chicago students headed to Ecuador for a week. We shared last fall that after seeking the Lord in prayer, our staff and students decided to begin new partnership with Guayaquil, Ecuador. It's the most populous city in Ecuador with more than 100,000 university students and little campus ministry presence.
Our team this week will seek to "spy out the land." Like Joshua and Caleb they'll be on the lookout for potential fruit and for giants we might face as we seek to share the gospel with the students of this great city. We are excited that we'll be sending our first summer missions trip in June!
Please pray for the team this week. Ask the Lord to bless their time in Guayaquil. Pray that the trip would be fruitful in laying a strong foundation for this partnership for the years to come.
The team will be send back video updates throughout the week that we'll pass along to you.
(Please keep Amy and Avery in your prayers too as they hold down the fort in Chicago).
