JONES | ECUADOR
Cris & Daniela (Cristopher & Emma) live in Shell, Ecuador where they serve as area directors with Young Life. They are currently responsible for the eastern region of the country where there are currently ten leaders, two weekly clubs and two more in the works. Young Life seeks to develop relationships with young people with the goal of introducing them to Jesus and discipling them as they grow in their faith. There are three main camps each year, one evangelistic, one focused on spiritual growth, and one on developing leaders. The youth they work with generally come from very difficult situations. Broken homes, alcohol and drug use, poverty, and abuse are common. To reach these youth it is necessary to go where they are and build friendships, which must continue to grow as they are being discipled in their new faith.
