God's Protection in Ecuador
Gregorio Saldana, our AIM/Arco pastor in Machala was visiting some families of our Compassion International kids when a man came up to him, pulled a gun, and put it to his head. The man asked him what he was doing in the neighborhood. He suspected that he was from a rival gang spying on his territory. Gregorio said he was a pastor helping the poor children of the neighborhood. A look of fear came over the man’s face as he asked Gregorio to prove it. He pulled out his Alliance International Credentials and the man began asking for forgiveness.
