VISION: Formerly known as the Huaticocha Missions School, Ninawachi’s vision is to reach out to the forgotten and impoverished jungle communities of Latin America with the love of Christ.

MISSION: Ninawachi’s mission is to train indigenous youth to be missionaries, send them out to the forgotten people throughout the jungle regions to make disciples in these communities and connect them to the body of Christ.

MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES: Teams going to Ninawachi will have the opportunity to come alongside Ninawachi staff, students and graduates and assist them in their ongoing work. This work includes construction, vacation Bible school, home visits, agriculture, soccer ministries, outreaches, etc. and can be located at several ongoing ministry sites in the two Northern Provinces of Ecuador, Orellana and Succumbios.  



Our first adult short-term trip since 2019 is headed to serve in Ecuador this summer!

Here's how you can pray for them:

  • Prayer that the team members will experience God's peace & presence as they prepare for trip, while they're in country and also upon their return.
  • Prayer that God will create a family-like unity among the team members.
  • Prayer that the team members will posture their hearts to allow God to work in them.
  • Prayer that God will strengthen the team members spiritually and physically.
  • Prayer that the team members will be expectant of God, but not have pre-determined expectations.
  • Prayer that God will continue to provide for all of the teams financial expenses.
  • Prayer that the team members will be reliant on the leading of the Holy Spirit.
  • Prayer that the team members will encounter God's love in a new way while humbly serving the people of Ecuador.
  • Prayer that God will protect the team members as they travel to & from Ecuador & while they're in country.
  • Prayer that God will walk closely along side the families of the team members while they are away.

We are so thankful that God has made it possible for a team of Daybreakers to return to Ecuador this summer! The group of 10 of us who were commissioned today have been meeting weekly since March, learning about how God can use us to spread His love in far away places. We have grown into a close group and we are all very excited to see what God has in store for us as we go!

We want to thank all of our families, prayer partners, financial supporters, and encouragers from all over! Your prayer and support has made this journey possible, and we are counting on your prayers as we start our final week of preparations prior to departure this Friday. Please know that we are carrying your love with us wherever we go.

Unfortunately, due to some growing unrest happening in Quito, the capital city of Ecuador, our sending agency, Envision, made the decision to postpone our trip to Ecuador. They feel things will calm down in a few weeks and our hope is that we will be able to reschedule for later this summer. Be praying for the team as they process through their disappointment. Pray for God's perfect timing for when they will be able to go to Ecuador.

A few weeks ago, we asked you to pray about the social unrest happening in Ecuador which caused our short-term team to delay their trip. We’re thrilled that things are beginning to resolve there, but also wanted to let you know that our team has decided to postpone their trip to NEXT summer so that each team member has the opportunity to still go.
