This morning we jumped on a bus headed to Ibarra, the location of one of our church plants and also the location where many of the Leaders of Extreme where just finishing up a week of vision casting and planning for the next year. We went to a district service that included about 10 churches in the district. The theme for the district meeting was making 2016 the year of multiplication and the General Superintendent of the Church of the Nazarene, Dr. Jerry Porter was able to be there and give the message. It was a wonderful opportunity to see the senior pastor at the Ibarra church that was planted less than two years ago, who is now the head of the district fire up the members of the different churches about changing their cities.
The message was focused around the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well and how the faith of that one woman saved the whole city.
After the service we had the opportunity to take all the leaders from Extreme back to Quito and tour the completed office and new apartments that will be used for training new missionaries before they go on to their service cities. Krista worked very hard this whole week working with many different people to get things moved in and set up to be prepared for the first missionaries whom will be here Thursday. (We forgot to take pictures of the new apartments and office, so we will post that soon).
Thanks for your continued prayers and support.
