Probably the majority of you who know us, know what we are up to in moving to Ecuador as long term missionaries. However, maybe some of you don't know. For the latter, we are long term missionaries who are moving to Ecuador to start homes for at-risk children and medical clinics. Kim is a nurse practitioner and Joel is a pastor/business guy/administrator/jack of all trades! God has separately called us and brought us together for this pretty major undertaking. We served as short term missionaries in Ecuador from 2010-2012 and returned in October 2012 for a year of home assignment and to transition to long term missionaries with the Evangelical Covenant Church and Covenant World Mission. We were commissioned as long term missionaries in June and were recently given permission to return to Ecuador to start our ministry. During this year as well, we helped create the Santiago Partnership. This is a non profit organization that will be funding the homes for at-risk children and the medical clinics.
