We were excited to send our first ever Discovery team to Ecuador in November. The team had an opportunity to celebrate the grand opening and dedication of Discovery Church Camaron, a church that was planted with the funds raised from Discovery Church Simi Valley. What a joy it was to partner with local church leaders to do VBS, parenting seminars, and visit the homes of the sponsored children.
We know many of our Discovery members sponsor kids through Compassion and we were honored to represent all of you. We can't emphasize enough how much your letters encourage and support the children and their families. While they struggle with much poverty, we saw a resilient church that relied on each other and had a genuine faith in God. These are attributes that the church in the US can grow in.
We are grateful that our giving and partnership in the Lord is making an impact, not only here in Discovery and in our local community, but in a place 3500 miles away - people we may never see.
This Christmas, let us remember to pray for Discovery Church Camaron, the local leaders who faithfully serve, and the children who are loved by their Heavenly Father.
If you are interested in sponsoring a child with Compassion or in our future mission trip to Ecuador, please contact us.
