Monday, 31 July 2017


Guayaquil (Agenzia Fides) - In Ecuador, the Evangelical Church has promoted summer courses for children where the Word of God is also taught. According to the statement by the local Christian Summer School Coordinator, 50% of children and adolescents who attend do not know Jesus Christ. The courses and subjects revolve around the value of friendship, love, and respect, accompanied by the Word of God. About 843 Evangelical Churches recognized by the Ministry of Justice, gather each year to carry out countless activities during the holidays with the aim to strengthen Christian values and principles in students and parents. During the 60-day course, the children become the bond through which their parents collaborate in Church activities and projects. (AP) (Agenzia Fides, 31/7/2017)
