Country

Between the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon jungle, Ecuador is a truly rare and special place. Designated one of only 17 “megadiverse” countries, it is one of the few places where even wildlife is constitutionally protected.

Evangelical Christians have grown from just 17,000 in 1960 to 1.2 million today. Among the Quechua people, over 50% now proclaim Christ in certain regions where only a fraction had heard the Gospel just decades ago.  Still, much work needs to be done.

  • Guaranda, Ecuador

    July 14-22, 2017

    Guaranda, a city surrounded by mountains covered with fields of crops has few evangelical churches. The region is the second least-reached in the country. The pastors have a heart to reach not only the small mountainside farming communities outside the city, but towns nearby, most of which have no church presence at all but are so open to hearing about how a personal relationship with God will change their lives.
