Hunger for God's Word in Ecuador

"I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me" (Galatians 2:20).

The new Genesis Bilingual Evangelical Church in Riobamba, Ecuador began holding regular services in November 2011. Wil Pounds had the privilege of holding the first service in the new building. He taught a four day course on Paul's letter to Galatians to the church leaders to reinforce the evangelism workshops he taught there earlier in the year.

This group of Quechua Indian believers has been meeting in homes during the past two years. They have been running 85 in worship services with the adults, youth and children meeting in different locations.

The walls with windows and doors have now been completed.

Construction has begun for Sunday School class rooms on the second floor.

Wil taught the Galatians workshop in seven different locations to pastors and church leaders. He also taught the Saturday class and introduction to Galatians at Peniel Bible Seminary in Riobamba.

At the Chambo de San Geraldo church Wil listened to a beautiful woman's choir. A  member of the church is one of the translators for the new revision of the Chimborazo dialect of the Quechua Bible. There is hunger for the Word of God in these rural mountain Indian villages.

One of the Peniel Seminary extensions is in Pallatanga, Ecuador. Wil taught Galatians in an open arch way at the Municipal Center because of lack of space where the seminary class meets.

Each week during the night Alberto Copa, Peniel Seminary Director, conducted an open air evangelistic service.  Well over a hundred youth made decisions the final night of the crusade in Pallatanga. It gives great satisfaction to be working with a seminary that has a passion for evangelism and discipleship. All thirty-two of our evangelism workshops planned for 2012 in Ecuador are being scheduled in locations where seminary students are pastors. Alberto and his staff will follow-up on these conferences with the students and their churches.

Galatias workshop in Portoviejo, Ecuador, is also one of four Peniel Seminary extension centers.

There was a great interest and powerful moving of the Holy Spirit as I taught Galatians in Riobamba, Chambo, Portoviejo, Jipijapa, Baia de Caraquez, Pallatanga and the seminary. Christ in you. To Him alone be all glory!
