As you, the reader, probably know, I am on the board for a non-profit orgnization called Equipping the Church International (or ECI for short). We are an organization that provides theological education for under resourced pastors in Latin America. We are barely getting started up, but exciting opportunities are already coming our way! For example this weekend I am going to Ensenada, Mexico to teach on shepherding God’s flock out of 1 Peter 5:1-4! Its my first time ever preaching in Spanish!
Here are some updates in the form of an email I received from Jose Luiz Amezquita:
Hello ECI Team!
I hope things are going well for you and your families!
We continue to pray and seek God’s direction for ECI and I encourage you to continue to pray for the development process and the team.
501-Process: I’m so excited to say that we are beginning the process of submitting all the legal papers for our 501 (c) (3) that will be focused on missions, training leaders and pastors around the world and also compassion ministry. I deeply appreciate every one of you who has participated in this process and who still are participating.
Ensenada Baja California, México: We have our pastor’s Conference on Saturday June 29, 2013 all day. Please be praying for us so we can communicate God’s word clearly and pray for the pastors so they can yield to the Holy Spirit as they receive God’s word. We are leaving Friday the 28th at 10:30 a.m. and coming back Saturday night.
We now have our mailing address for ECI: 4212 E. Los Angeles Ave. Suite 4166 Simi Valley, CA 93063
It has truly been a joy to partner with you and I’m incredibly thankful for your commitment, service, and faithfulness.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Today’s Verse: Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory (Isaiah 43:6-7).
