Macas, Ecuador

June 7, 2017 - June 14, 2017

Total trip cost: $1800

This strategic training opportunity is situated at the edge of the Ecuadorian jungle, where leaders come from within the jungle to be trained in the truths of God's Word. Most of our students are Shuar indigenous people, with a few lowland Quichuas as well. The majority of the mission stations established through the years out in the jungle areas have been abandoned as missionaries retired or relocated. It's estimated that over 90% are completely closed down now and the indigenous people are returning to traditional ways. Those participating on trips to Macas will have the opportunity to strengthen the represented churches for the gospel's advance throughout the jungle.

This site is a ministry of Covenant Baptist Church in Valdosta, GA. For information about this site and to inquire about serving on a short-term trip here, please email [email protected] prior to completing online application.
