MAXIMUM MISSION MAT25 MOUNT SINAI
(NCSA Ecuador) Last Saturday, October 26, the first Maximum Mission Work and Witness Project (MAT25) in the Ecuador North Mountain District was held by the Mount Sinai Church. The church is pastored by Rev. Hernán Puga who worked together with his local church ministries and the support of the District NMI Council; a team with a total of 25 members. The church visited the Juan Eulogio I Church of the Nazarene, pastored by Narcisa Santi and located in the City of Santo Domingo de los Tsachilas on the Ecuador North Coast District.
That morning, the event began with recreational activities for the children in the community in which approximately 90 children participated. In the afternoon, the team cleaned up a park near the Juan Eulogio I Church while the evangelism team shared the salvation message with people that passed by there.
The same afternoon, several church families who were experiencing vulnerability or sickness were visited and the visitors gave them a basket of love with non-perishable goods. There was also the opportunity to pray for their families and some of the members received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Through this event, a total of 30 baskets of love were passed out.
During the evening a special evangelism service was held in which the NYI from the Mount Sinai Church of the Nazarene shared a skit and an powerful testimony of how God has transformed their lives. The message for the night was brought by Pastor Giovanna Vásquez, National NMI Coordinator. There were more than 100 people in attendance for this service of which 10 decided to accept the invitation to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
On Sunday, the group held a children’s service and the NYI from Mount Sinai and Juan Eulogio presented different presentation with evangelistic messages, the message for the morning was brought by Pastor Nancy Álvarez.
The members of the Maximum Mission Work and Witness Project (MAT25) team were blessed and attuned to the needs of the community by the Lord. The Mount Sinai Church of the Nazarene is highly committed to the Great Commission and has a passionate desire to carry the message of salvation to all of Ecuador.
