"Go, send, or disobey." — John Piper

"People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives ... and when the bubble has burst, they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted."— Nate Saint, missionary martyr to Ecuador

My name is Stephanne Marsh, and I am a missionary kid from Quito, Ecuador. Even though I am into my 40's now, I will always identify as a missionary kid, as my upbringing shaped me into what I am today. I lived in Ecuador for 16 years, only returning to the States to go to college. Ecuador has always held my heart. I am a Marketing Support Specialist througout the year and a missionary to Ecuador during the summers. My husband and two children also have a huge heart for Ecuador. As such, our summers are spent in Ecuador, planting new churches by coordinating medical teams, and later buying land and constructing church buildings that double as feeding centers. All of our free time leading up to the summer, is spent rasing funds to coordinate teams to go to Ecuador, buy medicines and construction materials, as well as property on which to construct the buildings.

Ecuador is a tiny country right on the equator in South America. A developing 3rd world country, there are still untold numbers of people groups that have yet to be discovered and have never had the chance to hear the Gospel Message. The field is ripe for the harvest!

To give you an idea of exactly what it is that we do, we usually take a team of between 25-45 people for 8 days. Our teams consist of medical doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and people just like me (a teacher) and my husband (concrete construction). In those 8 days, we run medical clinics in areas that do not have a church. The areas are chosen by a team of Ecuadorian pastors that I have known my whole life. There is a pastor willing to move his entire family to the area we choose in order to grow the church once we leave. We typically treat/see close to 2,500 patients in a week's time. Of those 2,500 people, close to 80% give their hearts to Jesus. We hold the first "church service" late in the afternoon after we finish our medical clinic. We leave and go back to the United States, but that church continues on and grows exponentially. Over the last 6 years, we have planted 28 new churches and ALL of them are growing and thriving today.
