This picture sums it all up

Please forgive us for being negligent in posting here. We will get better at it! God has been moving in the hearts of His people and we are surrounded with testimonies of changed lives. This comes from our decision to follow God’s lead and plant a church in Quito. In the 3 years of organizing and launching this church, La Fuente, God has brought in people from all walks of life, stages of belief, and differing ethnicities. So many stories. We really do feel as though we are tasting what it must have looked like in the book of Acts.

This picture sums it all up in one precious moment. We have been in a series on Sundays about male and female roles, the past two weeks focussed on marriages. We discuss the sermon in homes at our weekly community groups. At the end of this week’s fairly intense discussion in our home about what the bible says regarding how husbands should be treating their wives and how wives should be treating their husbands, one man gets to his feet, turns to his wife and grown sons who are with him, with humble brokenness asks for forgiveness for his past sins, and gives repentant and loving hugs to each of his family members. Words cannot express the humility and exhilaration we feel as God rewards us with these moments of seeing good fruit come from the intense labor of the day.

Blessings to all of you who pray, support, encourage, and love us! We need it as we keep going forward with the gospel in a crazy, messed up world.
