Meet our 2016-17 Volunteers

On July 16, 2016 we commissioned these twelve generous and committed young women and men who have left the comforts of home to live and serve among the impoverished with Rostro de Cristo (RdC), The Face of Christ, in the barrios of Guayaquil, Ecuador. They will live together for a year in a contemporary Christian community inspired by the best of ancient religious life – simplicity, service, prayer, and hospitality. Please support them as they respond to God’s call to love and serve our neighbors.

If you are donating to support a new volunteer – please write his/her name on your check or in the PayPal message section.
