Hi friends!
God is gracious and we just got back from a busy, fun, needed, time in the U.S. where by God’s grace, I was able to graduate Seminary.  For now a few important prayers requests.

1. We have a visiting team from Cornerstone Church in Jackson WY. This team will help us host a small retreat for our leadership, help with various projects and they have the key task to bring some school supplies and a car part for my truck that is incredibly expensive in Ecuador. Please pray that they won’t have issues in customs as they arrive tonight.

2. We are helping ACBC with their first ever online training. Please pray and share if you know of any Spanish speaking brothers or sisters that might be interested.

“ACBC is partnering with BCDASoCal and iglesia La Fuente (Quito-Ecuador) to host an international Spanish Online Training course this summer. This Fundamentals Track will cover a wide range of topics such as marriage conflict, parenting, depression, anxiety, and psychiatric issues. If you know of anyone who would benefit from taking the Online Summer Spanish course, you can send them this weblink with more information. The course begins June 5th, 2017.”

3. Pastoral and leadership training. We are hosting our second Module of training next week. Eric Davis will be teaching discipleship from the Trellis and the Vine, I will be teaching Hermeneutics and Steve Youngren will be teaching family of the leader. Also, please pray as this week, our partners Compassion Connection are running a similar training from people outside of the city in their training center in Lasso.

4. Prayer for health. I (Juan) rarely get sick, but i have been fighting a weird, super strong cold since returning from the U.S. Right now, my left ear is clogged and I am not feeling that great. My Dr. said that it should pass soon. Please pray.

5. Studies show that Ecuador is one of the countries with the highest rates of teen pregnancies and the divorce rate has gone up sharply in the last decade. As a church, we are doing a short series on Song of Solomon to provide a biblical view of the topic of intimacy and relationships.

6. Please pray for our dear friends Cate and Noah as they transitioning their family back to the States in about a month. They have faithfully served and we are sad to see them go, but excited to see how God will use them back in the U.S.
