I remember about four months back when we had our last mission trip come to Misahualli for a week, we had just come back from a community and I remember at that particular community there were some tourists at the community, and they came in when we had our reunion with the community. They ended up leaving during the talk, so we left and got back to the town and I ended up running to into both of them in town.
The man ended up giving me a note from the Muslim bible; I read it while I walked into town to get some things. I was a little confused; I walked back to the hotel and saw them sitting on the steps that led up to the hotel and they started to ask me about my faith.
The guy ended up telling me that I was wasting my time being a missionary and that I’m doing everything wrong, and that I would be better off if I was handing out toothbrushes rather than singing and sharing GOD’S word with the people, and that I was pushing religion on people and that I didn’t understand the culture. At first I was a little down on myself, and I felt sad. But then I realized that this was a sign from the LORD confirming that my presence in Ecuador is needed, it encouraged me more than anything!
I hope that this story has helped and encouraged you all, GOD bless!
