    Open Air Campaigners


    OAC has been officially recognized as an evangelical mission by the government, and has permission to evangelize wherever people can be reached with the gospel. David and Monica are on the OAC Ecuador Board of Trustees.

    Outreaches are being held in plazas, neighborhoods, public schools, military bases, and with Indian tribes. Multiplied thousands of people have been reached, with many responding to Christ. The first lesson of a Bible study is immediately done with those coming for salvation. Often it's the first time they have read the Bible.

    Churches participating in the open air film meetings provide follow-up. Seminars on open air evangelism are held for pastors and leaders from evangelical churches. Teams from American churches have greatly helped in the outreaches, with team members receiving a new vision for missions. Ecuador is experiencing a spiritual awakening, and OAC is assisting the church to bring in the harvest from the jungles to the mountains.

Tables were set up outside in GAR Park in the center of the city and food distribution continued to grow. A year later, First Baptist Church of Haverhill (FBC) recognized the overwhelming need for this ministry and invited OHM into their facility to use their commercial kitchen and dining hall.
