Globalink with Santa Ana, Ecuador
I know the Lord secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy. – Psalm 140:12
Globalink partners a congregation in Canada with a developing community in another country. EBC: The MEETing Place has chosen to form a Globalink with Santana Ana, Ecuador. This corporate initiative aims to transform an entire community through long-term child sponsorships and missions to Santa Ana.
Globalink offers EBC the opportunity to:
- Financially support a developing community
- Commit to pray for the partnering community
- Commit to promote social justice themes in worship and education programs
- Host visitors from the partnering community to come share their stories and broaden our understanding of faith, culture and fellowship
- Send congregation members to the partnering community to learn about their lives firsthand and to support and contribute to its development
