We would like to share with you our year 2015 with you in pictures. News from the Fischer Family
Praise the Lord for the Valley Shepherd, Meridian, ID Church of the Nazarene for sending a Work and Witness team and choosing to partner with the Buena Fe church on the North Coast District in Ecuador. The trip was made up of 13 from ID, a couple from WV, and a former Mission Corps, Kim Haddon from OR. The team had many obstacles at the beginning of their trip. Due to flight complications the flight was delayed and only one person's luggage from the ID area arrived. The team traveled to Buena Fe a day later after retrieving all but one person's luggage. Their encounter with obstacles is kind of the same experience the church body of Buena Fe had experienced through the years of trying to keep going.
This was a special trip for Work and Witness Coordinators Jon and Shirley Fischer since the leaders of the team were Craig and Gail Zickefoose, their mentors of 15 years working in Venezuela together. Craig and Gail Zickefoose are former Global Missionaries from Haiti, Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela. Team member, Kim Haddon also served in Venezuela with the Zickfooses and Fischers. Yes, the suitcase did arrive in Buena Fe four days before the team left!
We are Jon and Shirley Fischer and we are missionaries serving with the church of the Nazarene in Quito Ecuador.
