The Republic of Ecuador is situated in Latin America. Between Columbia to the north, and Peru in the south.

The Capital city: Quito. They generally speak Spanish (of the 25 languages spoken).

Of the population of almost 14 million people, some 94% are Christian.

Famous Ecuadorians include:

  1. Pauline Aguirre – an Ecuadorian singer/songwriter. She is a Christian, and her first solo album was “Mujer de Fe” (Woman of Faith).
  2. Victor M. Medina is an actor, film art director and a production designer.
  3. Gerado is a Latin rapper and a singer.
  4. María Capovilla lived for 116 years and 347 days (Guinness World Record, at the time).
  5. Edison Mendez, football (soccer), scored 5 goals in the qualification phase of the 2006 World Cup.
  6. Antonia Valencia, football (soccer), [Manchester United] forward and midfielder.
  7. Pedro Vicente Maldonado (1704-1748) was a scientist physicist, mathematician, astronomer, topographer and geographer. He was part of a Mission measuring the roundness of the earth, and

Interestingly the Galapagos Islands are part of the nation’s responsibilities.  Interesting comment from Operation World:

The 28,000 people living on the distant and barren Galapagos Islands now have a growing ministry in their midst through MVI. The islands host many eco-tourists who, through Darwin’s legacy, are often hostile to biblical Christianity”.

Thanks to God: We do give thanks for the genuine Christian faith that has taken root in this nation. We lament the presence of all powerless, lethargic, nominal ‘religion’, and pray for fresh movements of the Holy Spirit, awakening faith, hope and love for Jesus Christ, his saving Cross, and His Living Word.

Prayer Points:

  1. Pray for the poor, especially the slum dwellers, of Quito and Guayaquil.
  2. Pray for the wealthy. Many of the upper and middle classes are largely unresponsive to the gospel. There is little vision to reach them with the gospel.
  3. Pray for the Afro-Ecuadorian people. There is much spiritism among them, and with this they delve into an engagement with the occult and powers of darkness. Only a small percentage, just 0.03% are evangelical.
