My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him (Psalm 62:5).

Like believing moms everywhere our attendees’ heart cry is that their children have an intimate, personal walk with the Lord. Raising kids on the field in some ways is no different than those in the States and in numerous ways, quite unique. Second guessing one’s call when children struggle with identity, friends and cultural adjustment is not uncommon. Lord we lift up those at the retreat who are experiencing tension and difficult decisions concerning their children. Raising teens carries it’s own challenges, in addition to living overseas, the complications can be many. May they sense your wisdom, peace, and grace as they journey through the various family challenges.

In Ecuador, the culture has been influenced by Catholicism over centuries. Though there is freedom of religion, much of the population is reluctant to consider change. However, we thank you, Lord, that there has been great impact of the Gospel in the highland regions. Thank you for the effective radio ministry of HCJB in Ecuador. We pray for the country to have an honest government that gives stability and peace, yet has the courage to tackle the serious economic and social problems. We ask for unity among the believers that transcends class, culture, and personalities. We pray for a healthy integration of the Quechan and Lowland Indians into the political, economic and spiritual life of the country, while preserving their cultural integrity. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
