Quichuas in Quito


We visited a Quichua church in Quito on Sunday. One tradition that isn't going to die out with the immigrants is the women's choir. Every church has one. And they perform in uniforms. The pastors, Geovany and Sandy, were students in a music program I taught several years ago. At that time they were single. I rejoice to see how God has brought them together and they are now serving the Lord, leading a church. The original purpose of our visit was to begin training teachers for the children, and to see what facilities they have. I slipped out of the service during the message and found the class was held outside, at night, with only chairs and no tables or materials. We hope to be able to coordinate some workshops with them in the future.
