Latin American Team to Provide Earthquake Relief in Ecuador

Latin American Team to Provide Earthquake Relief in Ecuador

On May 21 a team will arrive in Ecuador to care for people in deep need as a result of the powerful earthquakes that have struck Ecuador's coastal area over the last month. This team is comprised of 11 members from five Latin American countries including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Guatemala, and Uruguay.

Barb Wooler, director of Encompass World Partners' Crisis Response Network, plans to provide updates on her Facebook page as the team is able to communicate with the outside world.

You can help by praying and giving.

  • Pray for the team members as they prepare for their trip. This is the first time most have ever done something like this, and though they are excited and ready to serve, they may be experiencing some "butterflies."
  • Pray for confidence and peace.
  • Pray that each team member will be able to raise the balance of the funds they need for their team (all airline tickets have been purchased; the rest of their support will go towards their needs (food, lodging, etc.) on the ground.

Gifts given to Encompass World Partners' Earthquake Relief fund will go toward the ministry of this team, which will be providing for physical, emotional (trauma) and spiritual needs of earthquake victims.

We are honored to partner with these brothers and sisters and the evangelical church with whom we will be serving in Canoa, Ecuador.
