Baptisms with La Fuente in Quito, Ecuador

A friend of mine, Steve Youngren, is planting a new gospel-centered church (La Fuente) in Quito, Ecuador. Their work is very unique (and needed) in a culture inundated with Roman Catholic mysticism, animism, prosperity theology and a-theological charis-mania. This is a clip of their recent, and first, baptism celebration. Please pray for them. If you’re interested in learning more or getting involved, they regularly host short term teams and offer internships via Compassion Connection.
