Organization Description: 

The Directors, Staff, and Volunteers of La Montaña de Luz of Ecuador would be blessed to host an unforgettable mission trip that will change your heart like no other! We will personally collaborate with you, to customize an experience that utilizes you/your group?s special interests and talents. We creatively share the gospel through a variety of programs, which include horses, drama, music, bible study, VBS block parties, trade skills, English classes, fellowship events, and much more! We are partnered with, and offer programming to local charities, to include an Orphanage, Battered and Abandoned Women?s Program, and a Disabled Children?s Program. All you need is a desire to ?Make Jesus Smile?!

Bi-Lingual Directors. Non-denominational. Non-profit.

We are located approximately 2 ½ hours north of Quito in the beautiful Andes Mountain Range. The ?Ranch? sits on 60+ acres of some of God?s most magnificent work! The ?Center? is located in town 30 minutes away and our programs take place at both locations. We are a year round ministry, so we will gladly work with you to plan your dates, accommodations, activities, and events. All of our programs are offered free of charge. The Holy Spirit is at work through this ministry and we are betting that when you are packing to go back home after your time here, you will already be planning your return!

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:4-6.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
