Join us this November for The Altar's return missions trip to Ibarra, Ecuador to bless the church of Pastors Ariel & Nancy and reach their city! This year's trip is 2 parts -
BUILD & REACH:
BUILD NOV 12-20:
The first week, BUILD, will be a smaller building team focused on finishing the 2nd floor of where we left off last year - the pastor's apartment. We will be doing the finishing work - flooring, painting, tiling, installing fixtures, cabinets, bathroom finishing, etc... If you have a skill in any of these areas, or are a contractor, painter, handyman, or you're strong and like to haul equipment and supplies to help as needed, then you should apply for the Build trip! Space is limited to 10 people on the BUILD team.
REACH NOV 19-28:
The second week will be entirely focused on reaching the city of Ibarra, Ecuador in a sustainable way to bless not just Pastors Ariel & Nancy's church, but also other churches and ministries in the area! We will be going out daily - hitting the streets doing street evangelism, outreach events in the park, the neighborhoods, hospitals, preaching the gospel, praying for the sick, and releasing His Kingdom! Pastor Mattie will be coming to teach the area pastors that weekend building up to a large-scale Gospel & Healings event that weekend. We will also be promoting that event as we are around town. What better place to preach the Gospel than an event full of pastors from the region! We expect God to move mightily! We will be on our feet a lot this week so we ask that participants be comfortable walking 4-8 miles a day. If you smile and get giddy about the idea of seeing people accept Christ and get healed daily or you want to begin to operate the gifts of evangelism and healing then we encourage you to pray about applying for REACH Nov 19-28! Leading up to the trip, Pastor David & Nikol will be leading a series of training and application for evangelism, outreach, and healing! This team is limited to 20 people.
