Bring Christ’s Love to Prisoners in Ecuador

November 17

An inmate continued selling drugs in prison and extorted money from other prisoners until he heard the testimony of a cellmate whom a local missionary had led to Christ. Touched by how his cellmate’s life had been redeemed, he accepted Christ, receives biblical discipleship at the church workers planted inside the prison and shares the gospel with other prisoners and their families. Inmates’ impoverished relatives visit every week, and workers provide their children with food, clothing and Sunday school classes. Local missionaries throughout the country need donations to show prisoners and their families the love of Christ. Pray for worker safety amid the pandemic and violent criminals.

“I, too, try to please everyone in everything I do. I don’t just do what is best for me; I do what is best for others so that many may be saved.” (1 Cor. 10:33)
