Please pray that God will continue to open doors, and provide the resources for our evangelism and Bible teaching ministries.
How shall the future generations hear the Gospel in the high lands of Ecuador?

The first generation of Quichua believers were born in the fires of persecution. They had a passion for personal evangelism and church planting. Eighty percent of the Providence of Chimborazo are evangelicals. Everywhere they went they gave their witness for Christ and churches were born.
Today their testimony lives on through the faithful service of their sons and daughters who have come to know Christ as their savior in these thriving evangelical Quichua churches.
Seminary extension class in Yaruqui, Ecuador.
I recently taught two seminary courses to these third generation Peniel Seminary students. I spent one week at Yaruquí teaching Paul's first letter to the Corinthians. Everything that was plaguing the Corinthian church still drastically affects the modern Quichua church. We spent a good deal of our time applying Corinthians to the local church and Paul's answer to these contemporary problems.

My burden these days is for the third generation Quichua church. There are no grandchildren in the kingdom of God. Each individual must have a personal relationship with Christ.
This generation is being pressed in on all sides by materialism. Great achievements have been made in education, professional standing in every area of society.
Please pray for God's provision for Peniel Theological Seminary and for Wil's courses for these students.
