Quichua Pastor's Conference on Sound Doctrine
National Pastor's Conference Otavalo, Ecuador
"In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good
servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the
faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following" (1
The Quichua National Pastor's Conference of the Union Misionera
Evangelica was held in Otavalo, Ecuador, in December 2013.
Welcome to Otavalo, Ecuador.
The theme of this year's pastor's conference was "How to Maintain Sound
Doctrine in the Local Church."
I gave eight presentations on the theme of sound doctrine to over 400
Quichua pastors who had come from all parts of the country. My daughters
Amy and Paula observed that the pastors were all taking notes furiously.
The response and attentiveness was most gratifying.
Everywhere I go there is a hunger for Biblical truth and sound
doctrine. During the past four years I have been asked to teach courses
on Bible doctrine, and my book on Key Word Bible Doctrines has been
well received. The Quichua churches have been assaulted by Jehovah's
False Witnesses, Mormons, Prosperity Gospel, and an assortment of other

I taught earlier in the year.

colleagues Alejandro Guacho and Damaso Francisco have started a new
work at Chivios in Sucua. This is a jungle community about six hours
from Riobamba. They go to Chivios twice a month and spend four days
witnessing and teaching. They go door to door witnessing and
inviting people to come to the children and youth Bible studies. At
the worship service they alternate preaching on the Life of Christ
in Matthew. They are also using a video drama that goes through the
Life of Christ in Matthew verse by verse. A new believer, Jose and
his wife have opened their home as a meeting place. Seventy children
and 40 adults are coming to these services.
