New Community: "Chismaute Telan"


Pastor Manuel has studied with us in Capulispungo for the past three years. I've been trying to visit his community for some time, and this Saturday, the opportunity finally came. His church is way up in the mountains. Even so, I learned that his son works on a farm near our house in El-Tingo, Quito. We participated in a special program for Easter. Since no one in the church plays an instrument, my accordion was well received. This visit reminded me of the difference between a Quichua church close to the city, and a Quichua church in the mountains. Both maintain their traditions, only those near the city have more resources such as finances and technology. What's the future of these rural churches? We continue to pray for God's direction.
