The Nyssa, Oregon, team gave of themselves unto the Lord

Recently, a team from Nyssa, Oregon, came to Ecuador and built the Emaus church.  Previously, the church met in a very small rented building and had been waiting for its own building for a very long time.  The team worked very hard and was able to get the columns and walls up with the help of the church people.

A highlight of the trip was holding service at the project site even though it didn’t have a roof.  It was great to get to know the church people better.  At the end of the service, the team made balloon animals for the children and passed out candy to all.  That same evening, District Superintendent Mario Paredes, took the team up to a church in the mountains.  There, they worshiped together with more than 100 indigenous men, women and children.  They treated the team to beans and cuy (guinea pig) afterwards.

Thank you to the Nyssa church for giving of yourselves to the work of the Lord.
