Meanwhile, a mission agency specializing in agriculture is helping the people of Ecuador deal with a struggling economy. Farms International’s Joe Richter says Ecuador is their newest project and they’re helping the Quichua Indians through income generating projects. “Farms comes along side the church in places of deep poverty. It helps families out of poverty by providing a project that will produce an income. In Ecuador our first project will be green houses. These green houses enable farmers to extend their growing season.” Richter says the program requires participants to tithe to the church. “Our hope for the Quichua church is that they will learn to be self-supporting. We believe the church can be tremendously strengthened. We believe that evangelism can only happen when there’s a strong indigenous church.”
