"I have placed you as a light for the Gentiles, that you should bring salvation to the end of the earth" (Acts 13:47).   

Ecuadorian Quichuas have a passion to share Christ and start new churches in areas where there is no witness.   

The emphasis of Abide in Christ is teaching evangelism and discipleship in local churches in unevangelized areas of the world.

Wil recently taught three day evangelism workshops in two new Quichua churches. In Babahoyo, Ecuador, two years ago a Quechua speaking Sunday School class in the first Spanish speaking church in the city decided it was time of them to step out by faith and start their own church.

One of the characteristics of the Chimborazo Quechua speaking churches is that wherever they go in their commercial activities if there is not an evangelical Bible believing church they soon start one. This is true in the cities of Babahoyo and Juan Montalvo.

Wil gave a special presentation on Christian Ethics to the Saturday students at Peniel Theological Seminary in Riobamba, Ecuador, and then spent the next week teaching the course to students at the Pallatanga extension.

I have the privilege of serving as a professor at Peniel Theological Seminary, Riobamba, Ecuador. I taught the course on the doctrine of salvation in January at the seminary extension in Pallatanga. In May I taught the course on Christian Ethics. It was a tremendous blessing being back with the same students. Their passion to serve Christ and enthusiasm for learning is contagious.
