Love Story of a Ministry

In the summer of 2003, a missionary family arrived in Quito, Ecuador. It was us! Little did we know at the time what God had intended to do through our lives. As we prayed, “God, break our hearts over what breaks your heart,” he placed a small group of 12 shoeshine boys in our path. After a few months, we had started an informal ministry to working children, meeting with them in the street, public parks, and borrowed facilities. Thirteen years later, we are thrilled to announce that God, in His timing, has allowed us to purchase a beautiful property right in the center of the area where the most working children can be touched. Due to the tireless dedication and love of many generous partners:  Brother Tim Hill and Church of God World Missions; Brother John Gregory and the Lazarus Foundation; and mission representative, Brother Elmer Turner; FACES now has its own facility in Quito. Here we receive working children in our day program, provide a feeding center, house our night school for educational reinsertion, offer church services and house our national offices from where we manage all our prevention projects around Ecuador, serving more than 1,000 children and youth. We are so awestruck at the faithfulness of God to complete what He has started. Now, the task is the remodeling of this abandoned school property and buildings to make it an inspiring place for the working kids to call their home away from home. Please give now and play your part in the eradication of child labor in Ecuador. God has out-done Himself, but there is so much more to be accomplished! Please click on the video on the home page to hear the exciting news about the three phases of remodeling we have planned.
