Dumas praying with new believers in Christ Jesus, Riobamba, Ecuador.
"After these things I looked, and behold, a great
multitude, which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and
peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands . . ."
Carl, Wil, John and Don led door-to-door evangelism teams in Riobamba,
Ecuador August 2011 and 2012.
Wil, Carl, John and Don taught personal evangelism by
taking teams from local churches door-to-door witnessing. During the week
174 people put their personal faith in Christ as their Savior.
Members of Genesis
Evangelical Church went out sharing Christ with Don, John and Carl.
Dumas is a pharmacist who loves sharing Christ with individuals. This is his
second trip to Ecuador with Abide in Christ evangelism ministries. Here is
his report on sharing Christ door-to-door with members of the Genesis
Bilingual Evangelical Church in Riobamba, Ecuador.
The first lady met was digging up a stump. She stopped
and listened to the gospel and prayed to receive Christ.
The second person was walking down the street. His wife
was a Christian. He invited Jesus into his heart.
Then we met Jesus and Jonathan. They were each 16 years
old. They were both from Catholic back grounds. Jonathan was an altar boy
in the Catholic Church. They both prayed and asked the Lord Jesus Christ to
forgive their sins and be their savior.
We shared the gospel with Kevin, Anthony and Francisco.
My translator Evelyn shared with them using the salvation bracelet, and they
each responded to the gospel call.
We went back to the church. And Kleber came walking by
this church. He went to church Sunday, but he wanted to know how to get to
heaven. We shared the gospel with him and Jesus saved him. He said that he
would be here at the Genesis church Sunday at 9 am.
We shared Christ with a 16 year old. She prayed and
asked Jesus to forgive her sins and to come into her heart and give her the
gift of eternal life.
There was a young woman and a
young man, Patricia and Angel, working at a wood shop. They both listened to
the gospel and prayed to receive Christ.

met two ladies, Sara and Mariana walking down the street. We asked if we
could share the love of God with them. They stopped and listened to the
gospel presentation and they asked Christ to come into their hearts and
forgive their sin.
We went into a store and
ask if we could talk to the person behind the counter. Her name was
Rocio. She listened in between customers to the message of the gospel
and she prayed to receive Christ. We had 14 salvations today God is
working here in this place. Jesus is still knocking at the hearts of the
people in this community. There is still great work here to be done. I
challenge you to begin to share your faith. Partner with Jesus as He
knocks at the door of the hearts of the lost in this neighborhood and as
He seeks an eternal relationship with them. We saw 174 people come to
Christ this week.
The Genesis Bilingual
Evangelical Church is living up to its name because as a result of this
week of evangelism they began Spanish services on Sunday morning.

San Bernardo Evangelical Church "Kichwa Belen"
baptized over 155 new believers one Sunday in 1971.
Missionary Henry Klausen and Manuel Naula showed gospel
films in the community of San Bernardo. Out of the fires of persecution
people made decisions putting their faith in Jesus Christ as their
Savior. Police could do little against a drunken fiesta mob of 700. A
year later believers in San Bernardo asked the GMU missionaries to
conduct a baptism service for them. Manuel Naula went a few days earlier
and to interview the baptism candidates and prepare them for baptism.
Excitedly he told Henry, "Remember how we thought that fifty people
raised their hands? There are 155 people ready to be baptized and most
of them date their decision back to that night we showed the film." For
an excellent history of the early days of Quichua mission work I highly
recommend New Song in the Andes by John Maust published by
William Carey Library, Pasadena, California.
