John and Marilyn report that over the last couple of months, we were able to visit several of the Arco churches in Ecuador and have rejoiced in seeing how the saints are standing firm in the faith. During the last several weeks, some of the churches have even been breaking attendance records with many coming to the Lord each Sunday.
In Cuenca, we are averaging around 35 new people each week in our 3 services. On the 18th of this month, we will be reopening our Arco East services and moving into a new rented building. Everyone is very excited. Joel and Karyn now have 2 dynamically growing youth home groups and were recently invited to minister to the youth in the Quechua churches in the province of Chimborazo.
Our new church facility! Estancia Rosario on the east side of Cuenca.
