Evangelism in the "Banana Capital of the World"
Abide in Christ Quichua Evangelism Workship in Machala, Ecuador
"Before they call, I will answer; while they are
yet speaking I will hear" (Isaiah 65:24).
Machala, Ecuador is one of the largest banana
exporters in the world and calls itself the "Banana Capital of the
World." Other high exports are coffee, shrimp, and cocoa shipped out
from nearby Puerto Bolivar.
The coastal highway toward this Pacific port
city plows through hundreds of miles of vast swaths of banana
plantations in every direction. An hour further south lies the Peruvian

There are two universities, numerous private
schools, and a strong evangelical work in the city. There are three
Quichua bilingual (Spanish and Quechua) churches in Machala.
There was excitement in the Quichua church when
I arrived. They had been requesting our evangelism conference for over a
year. I began the four day evangelism conference on Sunday night and
spoke to a packed congregation about "Bad News – Good News." I took them
down the Roman Road to share how easy it is to present the plan of
salvation to a friend.
One of the many demonstrations on personal
witnessing at the conference
Each participant received a free copy of my
workbook on personal evangelism, and a free pocket New Testament in
Spanish. I taught them an easy way to mark their New Testament with the
plan of salvation, and then gave a demonstration on how to use their
testaments in sharing Christ with unsaved friends. The class was divided
into groups of three and each person practiced witnessing in a safe
learning environment. We then went out witnessing for an hour.
Participants practice sharing the plan of salvation with one
We also use small groups to teach eternal security and discipleship.

These workshops on evangelism and Bible doctrine
are also used to create interest in beginning Peniel Theological
Seminary extensions in new locations throughout Ecuador.
I also taught a 40 hour classroom course for Peniel Seminary on the
Cults in Pallatanga, Ecuador. This is in response to the eight
presentations I gave at the Quichua National Pastor's Conference in
Otovalo. In February 2014, Peniel will begin an extension with 30
students in Guayaquil, the largest city in the county.
