Macas, Ecuador lies at the edge of the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador. It is a strategic location for reaching indigenous pastors of the Shuar tribe further in the jungle. From Macas, teams will travel further downriver to a strategic training location where the trainings will take place. Travel by road and by boat is required on this
The Shuar peoples inhabit the Amazon basin region of Ecuador. Historically, they have been closed off to modernization and to the gospel. However, today a network of churches exists among their villages. These churches have pastors with little or no training. Training teams will travel with a Reaching and Teaching field missionary and other field partners to a strategic location for training. Conditions will be primitive and churches or individuals who partner with this site need to be aware of this reality.
Travel & Accomodations
Teams will fly into Quito, Ecuador, and travel by missionary vehicle to the site. If flights become available between Quito and Macas in the future, flights will be arranged to Macas. Teams will likely travel downriver by boat to the training site.
