Ecuador Compassion Trip - Participant Application
Echeandia, Sabanetillas Ecuador – HIGHLANDS Compassion – Ministry Partner Trip Dates: Sept 21-Oct 1, 2017
THE PARTNER In response to the Great Commission, Compassion International exists as an advocate for children, to release them from their spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults. ---from the Compassion website
THE MISSION This is a primarily relational based mission trip. We will be ministering directly with the children we sponsor and the church we planted in Echeandia, & Sabanetillas within the “highlands region” of Ecuador. We will do whatever projects and visits needed to help our partner church there reach out to the community. It’s an opportunity to witness your ministry fighting at the front lines of poverty. This is also an opportunity to meet your sponsored child- an experience that will change your life.
CHILD CODE PLEASE NOTE: If you sponsor a child in Ecuador and the child’s code begins with EC499, or EC499A then these are the village’s where your child lives!
COST Projected cost: around $3100-$3200 per person This depends mostly on final airfare. This cost includes airfare (round trip from Denver), all meals (except in transit to/from Ecuador), lodging, local transportation, and ministry project costs.
