Columbus Leadership Campus is taking a group of us to Cuenca, Ecuador, based at an elevation of 8,400 feet, in the heart of the Andes Mountains, to reach a city of people who are in desperate need of Jesus. We will be going to Cuenca during one of the darkest and most celebrated nights of the year called El año Nuevo aka New Year's Eve. Throughout the week we will prepare for this outreach and participate in burning the “old year". In Ecuador at the stroke of midnight people around the country burn paper mache mannequins that represent themselves, government figures, icons, events and much more. The streets are filled almost like Mardi Gras. We plan to bring an evangelistic message by building some of our own mannequins and scenarios that will lead others to Christ. We will minister to hundreds that evening and are believing for God to use us in a creative and powerful way.
