Our Sister Church: San Jose Obrero in Manta, Ecuador
We are blessed to have a companion relationship with our sister church San Jose Obrero.
The goal of our Companion Church Program is "Mutual encouragement and prayer for one another, intensified knowledge and concern for one another, and the exchange of resources, both spiritual and material."
We are entering into our 12th year with our companion church, San Jose Obrero. The church is located in Manta, Ecuador, a mid size city on the Pacific Coast. We also help with another church, San Pablo, in Manta. We coordinate our work with other projects, and with two other churches in our diocese: St. Mark’s Church in Antioch (George Kurz) and St. Joseph of Arimathea in Hendersonville (Sarena Petit)
Activities/Projects with our friends in Ecuador include: repairs and construction projects, mini bible camp, English classes. handicraft purchases for resale at the preschool, preschool breakfast program, medical clinics, prayer support, clergy support, and purchasing of church supplies.
We currently support a preschool and each year in June we jointly run 3 days of medical clinics.
