Ecuador — Teens Missions Trip (Summer 2019)
History & Ministries of Ecuador Base
Teen Missions in Ecuador began in 1999. In 2017 we were able to purchase property near La Concordia which is centrally located, 3 hours from Quito and approximately 1 hour from Santo Domingo. This gives us a very desirable location for our base. The land is lush and beautiful, producing cocoa, pepper and bananas. Perfect for our Bible, Missionary & Work Training Center.
With this new location we are now able to run Boot Camp training for the Ecuadorian young people twice a year, in the Spring and in the Summer. During the rest of the year, the staff take care of the livestock, harvest crops, and minister to those in the surrounding communities.
Unique islands, steamy rain forests, rugged mountains and indigenous culture are all part of Ecuador, a small South American country. Ecuador is home to Cotopaxi, the world’s highest active volcano, and the unique Galapagos Islands. Also, the Equator runs through the northern part of the country. Most of the 13.2 million Ecuadorians live in or near big cities such as Quito (the capital) and Guayaquil. These cities are marked by overpopulation, slums and impoverished living conditions as approximately 65% of Ecuadorians live below the poverty line. Spanish and Quechua are two of the major languages spoken in Ecuador. Roman Catholicism is by far the most-followed religion.
