Amazing response to Gospel among Quichua; 120 Christians in 1967 to 50% evangelical now. Evangelical churches often do not work well together. Catholic church is losing members and needs revival possibly by charismatic groups. Ecuador’s missionary outreach to other countries is small, but growing.
Pray for unity within the evangelical church and revival within the Catholic church. Pray for continued growth of the missions to other nations.
