It is my great pleasure to present my IAM (IberoAmerican Ministries) supervisors: Samuel and Paola Lefimil. They are from Chile! (Just like me!)
Samuel is a music teacher and Paola is a family therapist. Over the years, they led several short term teams from their church in Chile and each time Paola had a yearning to stay instead of returning home. Samuel wasn’t convinced, but Jesus was working on his heart gently. After a couple of years, he finally said the words that Paola longed to hear: “I think we should move to Ecuador.” She was ecstatic.
They just arrived in Guayaquil a couple weeks ago. God worked things out for them to partner with Compassion International to expand an existing lunch program for school age kids.
I’m so excited to get to work with them. 🙂
