The Westwood Missionary Baptist Church
will begin a new mission endeavor into Latin America
There are many countries in Central and South America with no scriptural New Testament Church. Ecuador, Chili, Argentina, Uraguay and Brazil are just a few with no ABA mission work. Bro and Sis. Gages experience, training, organizational abilities, cooperative spirit, positive attitude, motivational qualities and determination to succeed will be a great asset to help our church reach the goal of establishing new Churches in some of these Latin American areas. So we are excited about this golden opportunity to open new mission fields where there is presently no ABA Mission Work.

Ecuador is being considered mainly for three reasons:
· First, there are no ABA Mission works there.
We have talked with Bro. Carlos Angulo, Missionary in Peru, and learn that
there are ample opportunities, with favorable responses to the Gospel message
in Ecuador. Bro. Gage, one of Westwood’s missionaries who has been
working in Colombia for 30 years, has been considering Ecuador mainly because
it is near Colombia where he can still be available to assist the missions
there while the Political Revolution settles down to a safer atmosphere
in Colombia. Westwood also has another missionary in Peru, Bro. Juan
Angulo who might be able to afford some assistance.
· Secondly, Ecuador borders Colombia to the North and Peru on the South. There are Missions and Churches with the American Baptist Association that are in both these neighboring countries. This provides two strong support groups that can possibly aid in the establishment of a new work.
· Thirdly, Ecuador has been a country with a great evangelistic outreach mainly due to the gospel radio station, “The Voice of the Andes”. But while there are other Baptist Groups now working in Ecuador, there are still no ABA missions.
