Maine District and Torre de Fe- Tower of Faith

In Dec. '12 a District Team from the state of Maine came to work in Santo Domingo to help them put a second story on their church. The team was led by Pastor John Evans from Strong, Maine.  His family served as Mission Corp volunteers here in Ecuador while they were completing their sabbatical two years ago. 
Long before the team came the pastor of Torre de Fe church, Jefferson, started raising money by social media, visiting churches and what ever other way he could.  He asked each person to pledge $10.  Then the Maine district came along to partner with them to help them build the second story sanctuary to their church.

The Maine team was made up of people of all ages, all walks of life and different churches.  Each night someone on the team shared their personal testimonies of how God had changed their lives or delivered them from some addition.  God truly had blessed this team and made radical changes in their lives.  Their personal testimonies were a great witness to the Santo Domingo church.  Thank you short-term missionaries from Maine.
