Spiritual Emphasis Week!

Dear friends and family,

One of the most exciting parts of our ministry in Ecuador is pouring into the lives of the students and teachers at Alliance Academy International. This week provides a great opportunity in that regard as for the last couple months we have been preparing the yearly “Spiritual Emphasis Week”.

Spiritual Emphasis Week is a unique week of school in which the students have a modified schedule that includes a built-in hour of chapel in which we intentionally try to engage the school community with the gospel. As I mentioned previously, we plan for this event for a long time. We had games, videos, skits and most importantly people that bring God’s word daily.

The theme for this year is “Question Authority” We want our community to look into things that have authority in our lives (hobbies, relationships, jobs, school, etc) The gospel brings us true freedom as we allow Christ to be the only authority of our lifes! This is a key topic for our students.

This year, we had the opportunity to bring some really special guests. We had ⅔ of Lampmode recordings’ The Collective (Stephen the Levite and Zae da Blacksmith). If you know me (Juan), you probably know how excited I would be for having those guys here. It’s not often that my two worlds (Ecuador and my life in the U.S.) collide. God used the folks from Lampmode to really challenge my faith. I pray that the same could happen with many people here in Ecuador.

  – Pray for the gospel to continue to be preached faithfully and clearly.

– Pray that the Lord would be glorified and that many people would fall in love with Him and be saved. Pray that those that know him, would be encouraged to live in a way that is worthy of our calling.

-Please pray for the follow up after Spiritual Emphasis Week. For opportunities and wisdom for the teachers and staff to speak into the students lives as well as help them connect with a local church.

-Also, please pray for us as we both ended the week feeling pretty sick.

P.S. We quickly wanted to share that we are under our level of support. Please read our previous email and consider partnering with us!
