It is good to see the churches take pride in their celebrations of anniversaries. Last week-end Pastor Luis Matango led his church celebrating their 24 years of building God's Kingdom by inviting choirs from neighboring churches and special speakers. Pastor Luis and his family have been the pastor of the Gualsaqui Otavalo church from it's beginning. Many people know Luis as the vendor that makes and sells woven goods and the famous bracelets that are handed out at General Assembly. He is a bi-vocational pastor earning a living for his family of five children. He also has started many other churches in his area and loves to work for the Lord.
Thank you for your prayers for 6 year old Bruno Huamán and to the many people that have written comforting words of encouragement for the family. We recently talked with Lenilde, the father and he said that it was a miracle the way God protected Bruno today. Bruno fell on top of his backpack to help break some of the impact when he was hit by a car. The impact with the car was so strong that the people nearby that came out of their houses thought it was two vehicles that had crashed. The neighbors helped by calling 911 for the ambulance to take Bruno to the hospital. After a thorough check up the hospital released him even though he has some bumps and bruises but he is home with his family tonight.
Even though the neighbors that witnessed the accident are not Christians they are saying that it truly was a miracle. We know that God will use this to help further His work for the kingdom. Bruno's parents are Lenilde and Consuelo Huamán the pastors of the Church of the Nazarene in Ambato, Ecuador.
Thank you for your prayers! God is faithful!
We are Jon and Shirley Fischer and we are missionaries serving with the church of the Nazarene in Quito Ecuador.
