Ecuador Medical Clinic
Hal Lindsey famously quoted, “Man can live about forty days without food, about three days without water, about eight minutes without air…but only for one second without hope.”
For the past 14 years, Luke Society director Yeny Agila de Pinos has been eliminating despair and sowing hope in the hearts and minds of hundreds of children and mothers in Quininde, Ecuador. In fact, her entire ministry is built on the concept of the hope and new life we have in Christ Jesus. Yeny’s ministry, Mision San Lucas Ecuador, focuses on five important objectives:
- Sowing with hope: Biblical training, fellowship and micro-finance for women’s groups.
- Growing with hope: three children’s projects provide tutoring, Biblical training and meals to children living in poverty.
- Teaching with hope: sexual education is taught from a Biblical perspective in public schools
- House of hope: the campus where a medical clinic will be built.
- Leading with hope: theology training for church leaders.
