Thanks for your support and prayers as we serve in Carmen Bajo, Quito, Ecuador this July!
We are a family team preparing to work alongside our partner church July 7-16.

 

Creekside Church sends a family team each summer to our partner church in Quito, Ecuador.  For over 10 years we have had the privilege of sharing in the ministry of Pastor Fabian Erazo and the Carmen Bajo Alliance Church as they impact disadvantaged kids and families in the barrio of Carmen Bajo.

Carmen Bajo is known for its stunning view of the mountains, but when you take your eyes off the horizon, you see a community struggling to survive under harsh economic, social and spiritual conditions.  Nevertheless, the light of Jesus shines brightly there, and we are excited to be able to share with our church family in the work they do to bring hope and help to many!

In our time there we will work alongside our brothers and sisters to run day camp programming for over 175 kids, to share together with their young people and adults, to help with construction work, and to see firsthand not only the need but how God is very much alive and active in the hearts of His people in Carmen Bajo.

Your prayers and financial support are much appreciated.

Thanks for joining with Carmen Bajo and Creekside in the work of God in Ecuador!

WHO WE HELP

Impact Ecuador supports the people of Carmen Bajo, a neighbourhood in Quito, through the ministry of Carmen Bajo Church. Due to high unemployment, there is widespread poverty in the community, and many struggle with social problems such as alcoholism and family degradation.

WHAT WE DO

Impact Ecuador partners with  Carmen Bajo Church  to provide food, education, vocational opportunities, and spiritual growth to the whole community.

Volunteers and staff provide a hot lunch and a half-day of tutoring to hundreds of kid each week through the  Quito Kids Meals and Tutoring Program.  This program is a place of belonging, love, and learning for kids in the community who otherwise would be on their own all day until late in the evening.

Scholarships are available to community members seeking post-secondary education. These are instrumental in lifting whole families out of poverty.

The Carmen Bajo Church construction project has provided the church with a new building that fits their growing congregation and has become a centre for the whole community to take classes, join programs, and learn more about the Gospel.

Consistency of vision and leadership is essential for the success of any program. Impact Ecuador provides support, both practical and financial, to Pastor Fabian and his wife Grace, who have tirelessly led the Carmen Bajo Church for more than 15 years. We’re committed to supporting them as they continue to serve in their community.
