Leo & Lourdes Calva, World Venture


Email: leocalva@alegropcs.net

Originally from Oregon, Leonardo & Lourdes are missionaries through World Venture. They are in Loja, Ecuador, ministering in church planting and leadership development.

Primary Ministry Focus: Church planting and developing leaders for the churches established.
The People: Loja is a place with less that 0.1 percent believers. In the province they are working in there are at least 30 towns with 2,000 people in each community who do not have any evangelical church of any kind. People are very tolerant of materialism, sensualism, migration and drug addictions.

Major Challenges: Help believers grow in their love for God and commitment to serving their local church. Assist the Ecuadorian church in becoming a missionary force.

Prayer Focus: For Leo and Lourdes to be able to make a difference through the churches they are planting and for protection over their lives. They have experienced persecution from the Catholic Church.
