Hopelessness in Salinas

Back to reality of the sin sick world in which we live. This week 2 children were killed in their home within 1 mile of the Church we serve in Salinas, Ecuador.  The people live in fear just like the people from "Ee-tao" the movie.  This is the reality of a life w/o Jesus Christ.  Just 1 hour north 2 Argentine girls were murdered in Montanita. Pray with us for the salvation of souls. (Luto=mourning). Santa Elena is the province. PS: look around you. Today there are people suffering without hope!  You have been called to bring them the hope!  Get to it!

Ephesians 2:10-18 "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, 

having no hope, and without God in the world: (let that eat at you a bit).

But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father." (Hallelujah!)
