Prayer is being requested for Brothers Saul Alonzo (a member of the Central SDB Church in Maryland) and Clint Brown (Executive Director of the SDB Missionary Society) as they prepare to jet off on a missions trip, to connect with believers in Ecuador, as ambassadors of the SDB global family. Ecuador is a country straddling the equator on South America’s west coast. In the Andean foothills at an elevation of 2,850m, Quito, the capital, is known for its largely intact Spanish colonial center, with decorated 16th- and 17th-century palaces and religious sites, like the ornate Compañía de Jesús Church.
Saul Alonzo is originally from El Salvador and is married to Heather. They have two boys, Carlos 19 and Aaron 15. They started attended Central SDB in 2007. After 8 years there, they were commissioned to start a spanish ministry in Silver Spring. That ministry started in June 2014 and is named Gracia Sobre Gracia. The group meets at 1916 Bonifant Road in Silver Spring, MD where Brother Saul serves as the acting pastor.
Saul and Clint travelling to Ecuador, South America June 23-26, will have objectives to include, strengthening relationships with the ministry operating in Quito and provide encouragement for the mission to share the Gospel in Ecuador.
