A week ago I was able to be in Venezuela to celebrate 25 years of Awana in that challenging country. I was able to participate in one of their conferences in Maracaibo where over 600 Awana leaders celebrated what God is doing in that city.  There are now 285 clubs and five missionaries in that country.

Tonight a team from Renton Highlands Community Church in Renton, Washington arrives to do another round of High Power Soccer in Portoviejo Ecuador. Two churches have joined efforts again this year.  Like last year we are hoping for 200 children. We had this conference and one group of 71 children from one community came and more than 50 of them made professions of faith. Today in that community alone over 90 children meet weekly in an Awana club.  God is touching this area.

This time around we are reaching into two other "children at risk" communities.  Fifty will be children who live in the garbage dump.  Others from another area. The cost per child is $6.50 and we have scholarships to cover the materials for those children.

Pray for us....

  • that we reach more children with the Gospel
  • for good weather
  • for safety and health for the team as well as the children and local church leaders
  • that there be enough scholarships to pay for each child to participate (some can pay their own way but most cannot) 
  • that God reach into the lives of these people and that we see transformation
  • for the two churches, their leaders, and the team as they work together and over come language barriers to reach children for HIM.
