This Lent, our PREP families are supporting mission efforts for children in the Diocese of Latacunga, Ecuador, where many indigenous people live in poverty. Did you know that…
Adults who live there are mostly uneducated.
Families raise livestock and other animals to earn money.
Parents work where they manufacture vats or do seasonal work in the fields, picking flowers and vegetables.
Adults who can find work earn around $50 a week to support a typical family of 7 or 8.
Families are forced to leave many young children at home without supervision so they can work to earn needed money.
We encourage our families to give what they can to help those who minister to the needs of our brothers and sisters in Ecuador. Final Collection Date for our Lenten project is March 21st.
This Lent, let us pray for these families and offer them what we can to help.
