Where Would You Begin?
Guaranda, Bolivar Province, Ecuador
There are many communities around Guaranda that do not have any Gospel
witness. One community has only one evangelical believer. Abide in Christ is
working with pastors in Bolivar Province to prepare
witnesses in Guaranda to reach surrounding towns and mountain villages.
"Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a
defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is
in you, yet with gentleness and reverence" (1 Peter 3:15).
Surprise! Surprise! As we
left for a rural mountain location Alejandro said, "Alberto called and
said to tell you that you are to preach the sermon for a Quichua wedding
this morning at the Land of Canaan Evangelical Church." Surprise!
Surprise! My mind was centered on evangelism conference and messages on
key word doctrinal studies for the next two weeks of ministry.
I quietly prayed for the Lord's guidance. My
first thoughts turned to John chapter two with Jesus at the wedding in
Cana of Galilee. I preached the message on Jesus' blessing on the couple
and His silent ministry behind the scenes. We look forward to the
marriage supper of the Lamb. Pastor Alberto Copa performed the ceremony
after my message.

Chimborazo Province, Ecuador
I preached on the doctrine of the Holy Spirit at
the evening service in Riobamba at the Genesis Evangelical Church.
The Colta area was founded in the early 1500's when the Spanish
conquistadores arrived in Ecuador. We held evangelism workshops in
evangelical churches in the town of Armenia and Colta Monjas. Pedro
Fernandez, a professor at Peniel Theological Seminary, is the pastor of
these churches. Wil spent three days introducing the personal evangelism
studies. Pastor Fernandez will continue to teach our materials to
leaders in these churches.
Church leaders at Armenia studied personal evangelism with Wil Pounds.
Colta Monjas evangelism training in Chimborazo Province. Plans are being
made for more workshops.
We moved on to Guaranda in Bolivar Province and
held another three day conference. This is a location where Peniel
seminary will begin a new seminary extension program. Our workshops draw
participants from all walks of life and levels of education from small
farmers to highly educated professionals. Systems engineers in banks,
medical doctors, lawyers, university students, educators are willing to
take the lead in our small group learning activities.

personal evangelism with her sister, a chemical engineering student.
Wil also spent three hours in question and
answer forum with church leaders at the Pucolpala Alto church. The
second week was spent teaching evangelism and Bible doctrine at Pucopala
Centro. These were well attended and were a follow-up on previous
conferences in the area.
