In times of crisis, our faith must be stronger than ever, trusting with certainty that the Highest Lord is with us. His Majestic splendor helps the body of Christ. "The eternal God is our Refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms", Deut. 33:27. Praise our Father, Shepherd and loving Sovereign, interceding fervently for us.
We are writing for mutual comfort in these times, and perseverance doing His work. Certainly, Christ´s life is the light that shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. Hallelujah!
So we are trying to live as it is worthy of the Lord before our neighbors, relatives and disciples, and sharing the Gospel in many ways. These days we are giving as precious gifts, hundreds of biblical booklets in the streets, at shopping centers, banks, public and private offices, swimming-pool, etc., praying, smiling and saying "may God bless you. It is His Word". Many of them gratefully say, "Thanks a lot, same to you. God bless you.”
We are thankful for your warm fellowship with us during Fanny’s illness. She is better and her blood pressure is being controlled. The specialist says “Amen” to Fanny’s testimony about the providence of the Lord in relation to her health.
Fanny and Vicente Vieira

Only a short distance below the equator but at an elevation of 9,350 ft., Quito has a pleasant, balmy climate; however, it is subject to earthquakes and has been damaged several times. It is the seat of the Central University of Ecuador and of the oldest art school in Latin America. (From encyclopedia.com)
