Imagine there are young Christians who want to share the Gospel. They are eagerly waiting to be empowered and challenged. Because they have one goal: to actively invest themselves in the local and global mission. This is exactly the situation we face in Ecuador. We are met with the challenge of nurturing this incredible potential. As with Andrea, Ana, Freddy and Kelvin.
Quito is the capital of Ecuador and has 2.7 million inhabitants. It is located in a 2,850 meters high basin of the Andes and is thus the highest capital in the world. Our mission organization PROPÓSITO GLOBAL (Global Purpose) was founded in this location in Ecuador. The main goal is to challenge young adults to work together to reach those who have not yet been reached with the Word of God. We also train and give support to them so that they can use their gifts and talents for God. To achieve this goal, we work together with local churches and other mission agencies.
Through training, we renew and sharpen the churches' view of world mission and motivate Christians to actively participate in God's work. In this way, we support individuals to follow their calling, to form a team, to set up their own projects and guide them in the implementation of their respective project(s).
From being a teacher to the founder of the foundation
Ana Sanchez is 30 years old and originally a teacher. For two years, she had worked part-time in our organization. With a great sense of responsibility, she initiated and supported many processes of PROPÓSITO GLOBAL. She established the foundation Hombre de Paz (Man of Peace). Today, she and her team work mainly with children who, five years ago, lost everything in a devastating earthquake on the coast of Ecuador.

A European mission organization will support us with 40,000 Euros. We have received an additional CHF 30,000 from a private donor. But to realize our big dream, we need ten times this amount. We now have to find a suitable property or building site, raise money and establish contact with capable people to help us our dream to come true. We are grateful for experts, loans, donations, ideas and above all for prayers. Such a Cultural Centre should enable still more young adults to be empowered to spread the Gospel in Ecuador.
