We have two church districts in this area, one is the Coast District and the other is the North Coast District. We have over 80 churches in these area that was hit but praise the Lord minimal to little damage to them. One church that was renting a place was destroyed. We are saddened to say that the Nazarene Church claims 18 of the the over 500 deaths to this area and there are 20 more are still missing.
The Ecuador church has set up a relief plan of action which will do a lot of follow up including ministering with the Jesus Film to meet the spiritual needs and also a plan to meet the victims physical as well as emotional needs. Please pray for the church that we will be able to minister to all the needs of the people, not only the church people but to everyone. Pray for wisdom in ways to do that and also opportunities. Thank you for your prayers. We know many are praying.
