MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES IN QUITO
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'”
~Matthew 25:35-36 & 40
These are some of our Partner Sites, where we go to volunteer!
A ministry that provides a warm meal, the word of God, medical assistance, a micro business and much more to over 1600 hungry, in need people on a monthly basis. NILI joins this ministry on Wednesday evenings to prepare, cook and serve the warm meal. Also in helping with the kids teaching bible lessons and playing games while the adults are in their devotional time.
Located in Llano Chico-close to Calderon, this home exists to provide for the needs of the elderly when there is no government or familial assistance. Rather than trying to survive on the streets, these wonderful “third-age” adults are cared for and loved in a safe environment. At this time, there are 50 residents.
When visiting these wonderful people you have the opportunity to sit and talk with the residents who love the attention, you can walk around the property with them, assist then in knitting or other crafts and just be a friend to them. This is a great opportunity to practice your Spanish and to learn about the lives of these wonderful “third-age” adults.
A local Hospital here in Quito where we go to give out food to the people waiting in the emergency area. We help in any way we can being the hands and feet of Jesus in this public space.
