AFLBS students in the spring semester Cross Cultural Ministry class are preparing for classroom instruction and also a trip to Cuenca, Ecuador, where they will put their learning into practice during the first two weeks of April, 2019.
While in Ecuador, the 11 AFLBS students will work closely with Paz de Dios Lutheran Church to share Jesus with hundreds of local children and students through evangelism and service projects. The AFLBS students will live in the homes of host families from Paz de Dios Lutheran Church and have many chances to learn and practice speaking Spanish. They will also have numerous opportunities to see God at work in and around them while they are immersed in a culture entirely new to most of the class.
The Cross Cultural Ministry class understands that they also will represent AFLBS, their families, and their congregations as they seek to grow and serve the Body of Christ. Please join in prayer for the class as they prepare to serve in Ecuador.
The estimated cost per student for this two-week missions trip is $2000. If you desire to contribute to a specific student or to the general student needs of this trip, please find giving information below.
