Ebenezer Church Dedication
March 2, 2008
We have been working on the church in Quito, Ecuador for over four years. The building is finally to a place where the congregation can move in and continue to grow.

Ebenezer Assembly of God in Quito, Ecuador was dedicated on March 2, 2008. National Superintendent Jose Medina gave the dedicatory prayer and Senior Pastor Ron Bontrager of Lakeview Church in Indianapolis, IN challenged the congregation to continue to reach out to the hurting in their community with the love of Jesus Christ.

Pastor Alberto and Silvia Ospina did a great job putting together the dedication service. Pastor Butch Smith of Lakeview Church was there with a team of workers to paint the inside of the church, do the electrical and windows and get the church ready for the dedication. They worked very hard and we appreciate their final push.

A special plaque was made with the names of men who loved Ecuador and missions and who worked on many projects with us. Jim Smith, Douglas Miller, and Russ Pinkerton were all men who loved the Lord and gave of their time and talents to further the cause of Christ in Ecuador. The plaque was unveiled during the dedication. Family members were present with the final team and they were presented flowers.

Hi! This is a great summary you have of the Ecuador church opening. Could we possibly borrow parts of it (including pictures) to post on the Lakeview Church website? We will credit you, of course. Thanks and God bless!
