We are an organization who is passionate about empowering children in the jungle of Ecuador so that they can break the cycle of poverty and abuse and share a message of transformation with their family, community, country, and world.
Every morning, instead of walking or taking a bus, Joel’s dad paddles the Napo River against the current to bring Joel to Antioch Christian Academy, since their village is not accessible by roads. To pay for as much tuition as they can, Joel’s dad stays at school working in construction. In the classroom, Joel loves his work and never gets into the trouble for which most 8-year-old boys are known.
Jessica is 8 years old and is in Kindergarten. Jessica is one of four students living at the Antioch Student Resident Home which provides her with a safe, loving, Christian home throughout the school year. Jessica returns to her home in the rural community of Paltacocha (a two-hour drive, 40-minute canoe ride and about a mile hike) on weekends and the holidays. While there, Jessica lives with her parents and 4 siblings. Jessica is timid at first, but once she opens up, she is a joker. She is very loving and loves to play at home with her mom. Jessica’s favorite color is orange and her favorite food is rice with fried egg.
Our missionaries and staff are passionate people.
They invest their talent, time and treasure into fulfilling the great comission, "...to make disciples, ...teaching them,...baptizing them..."
