Shell, Ecuador. Sound familiar? How about End of the Spear? You know, the popular 2005 movie that was based on Jim Elliot and four missionaries who lost their lives to Huaorani headhunters in 1955.
On March 2, Uncompahgre Baptist Association set off for Shell, Ecuador to minister to a local village. Eight People from 4 different Churches participated in the trip (Calvary, Delta; Church180, Montrose; Grand Mesa, Cedaredge; and Rosemont Baptist Church, Montrose).
“The country is more male dominated and desperately needs men to take a stand,” Steven Puls, Pastor of Grand Mesa SBC said. Puls and his wife Carolyn were two of the eight individuals that were able to travel to Ecuador.
