Our new team-mates, Jonathan and Bekah Pifer (and Baby James!)
We met Jonathan and Bekah in 2016 and have collaborated on other projects over the years. Last year Jonathan and Bekah were seeking God's direction for a new full-time ministry partnership here in Shell. After discussions with their mission, their pastors and other wise counselors they decided to join the Alteco/Three Waves Movement team!
We have so much in common with Jonathan and Bekah as we desire to serve in a way that empowers the indigenous peoples of Ecuador to further the gospel in the Amazon. We also share the common goal to be catalytic towards more cooperation amongst missionaries, the local church and the indigenous church to spread the gospel into the Amazon.
Years ago, when we took on the role of Country Coordinators for Alteco/The Three Waves Movement, we knew the responsibilities were too much for just one couple. We were always meant to create an in-country team. After almost 5 years in Ecuador we are thrilled to have a couple full-time by our side. Already we are thankful for their wisdom, experience and energy.
Please join us in praying for us to have wisdom as we move forward in this new partnership and asking the Lord to guard our team relationships. Please pray we will honor the Lord with our motivations and actions.
