Communities where He is least known

Cantones del sur de la provincia de Loja

La ciudad de Cariamanga en el área rural de la provincia de Loja es una de las nuevas prioridades de SIM Ecuador. De las 77,000 personas en Cariamanga, solo un 0.1% son parte de una comunidad Cristo-céntrica. Muchas personas permanecen fuertemente ligadas al catolicismo romano, pero no siempre conocen muy bien la doctrina católico-romana. La gente practica un "catolicismo popular", es decir, creencias animistas mezcladas con la vida tradicional de la iglesia católica. Los curanderos, los chamanes y la superstición son tan importantes como las prácticas de la iglesia tradicional. Estas creencias todavía tienen un impacto en la vida de los creyentes evangélicos, que se enfrentan a la oposición cuando niegan las creencias tradicionales de su familia. Alrededor del 12-15% de la población de esta área es analfabeta. Los jóvenes continúan mudándose a las ciudades. Las pocas iglesias pequeñas que existen necesitan recursos y capacitación en evangelismo, discipulado, plantación de iglesias y doctrina para tener un impacto en sus comunidades. Las iglesias necesitan una visión para las personas perdidas y dispersas de su propia región. Un obstáculo importante son las muchas sectas presentes, que distorsionan la enseñanza del evangelio y confunden a los creyentes.

 

Estudiantes universitarios y jóvenes

La necesidad de proclamar el evangelio entre los miles de estudiantes universitarios y jóvenes entre 15 y 25 años en la ciudad de Loja está recibiendo un mayor enfoque. Existe una visión clara para discipular a los estudiantes universitarios y establecer un ministerio en los dos principales campus universitarios en la ciudad de Loja. Los estudiantes y trabajadores jóvenes están buscando un futuro mejor y, a través de las relaciones, buscamos llegar a estas vidas.

Oracíones

1

Ore para que los creyentes en las áreas rurales sean valientes embajadores de Cristo.

2

Ore por esfuerzos en la provincia rural de Loja para conectar y apoyar a las iglesias a través de la enseñanza, los recursos y programas de alcance.

3

Ore por sabiduría y dirección mientras trabajamos con otros para establecer un ministerio en los dos campus universitarios.

4

Ore por el trabajo continuo en las áreas urbanas, junto con la iglesia local.

5

Ore por sabiduría al considerar nuevos ministerios en las áreas menos alcanzadas de Ecuador.


Stories from this Country
