2019 Ecuador Trip

We are going to Ecuador in March 2019 to support our Compassion churches!

Give here to support us!

Donate to Vanguard Church

As many of you remember, Jessica, Dave, and Andrew went to Ecuador last year on a mission trip with Compassion International. Jessica and Dave are going again this March to support the same two churches.

We have been supporting our boy Jefferson in Ecuador through Compassion for several years now and this is our second chance to go visit him and get to know him better.

As you might imagine, taking an international mission trip after spending most of 2018 unemployed isn’t necessarily the best financial planning. We have been able to save most of the money for the trip, but we are still a little short. We made the commitment to go on the trip a while ago, and now we are trusting God to provide the time and money to fulfill that promise.

We would invite you to support this trip if you are willing. We are asking for prayer that the trip will be safe and inspiring for us, and useful for the villages we are visiting. We are also asking for financial support on this adventure. The benefit to us, if you choose to donate, is that we can avoid creating any new debt to serve these villages. Just put our name in the box and your gift to Vanguard Church is tax deductible.

Give here to support us!

Donate to Vanguard Church

If you would prefer to send a check directly to us (made out to Vanguard Church), that is fine too, and we can make sure it gets in the right hands to make this trip happen. We have until February 12th to raise the money, so time is of the essence!

2018 Support Invitation

The big adventure this year is that Dave, Jessica, and Andrew are headed to Ecuador in March with Vanguard Church and Compassion International for a week-long mission trip.

We have been supporting a boy (Jefferson) in Ecuador through Compassion for a couple of years now and this is our chance to go visit him and hopefully do some good.

As you might imagine, taking an international mission trip right after leaving a job isn’t necessarily the best planning. We made the commitment to go on the trip a while ago, and now we are trusting God to provide the time and money to fulfill that promise.

We would invite you to support this trip if you are willing. We are asking for prayer:

  • That the trip will be safe and inspiring for us, and
  • useful for the villages we are visiting.

We are also asking for financial support on this adventure. The benefit to us, if you choose to donate, is that we can avoid creating any new debt to serve these villages. If you want to donate, you can give online. Just put our name in the box and your gift to Vanguard Church is tax deductible.

If you would prefer to send a check directly to us (made out to Vanguard Church), that is fine too, and we can make sure it gets in the right hands to make this trip happen.

We have until February 19th to raise the money, so time is of the essence!

Our trip includes a flight into Quito, Ecuador.

 

Then a four-hour bus ride south to visit two villages, Guaranda and San Miguel, where we will spend the next four days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you very much for your prayer and gifts.
