We first met the Alyalas when they spoke at the Northeast, Ohio camp meeting. We remember speaking to them during lunch one day about their missionary work in Belize, and how to be certain of a missionary calling.
Alfonso helps church and community leaders with community initiatives, including the implementation of community service projects to satisfy basic health and educational needs. In the area of pastoral and leadership development, he facilitates training workshops and courses with pastors and teachers. Equipping and supporting pastors is a priority. He participates and teaches in regional, national, and local conferences; retreats; and seminars.
Elizabeth encourages, mentors, and coaches former students and high school teachers in their educational endeavors and challenges. She meets with women’s groups and individuals for fellowship, counseling, mutual edification, and friendship.
We encourage you to pray for the Ayalas this week. All good ministry needs to be covered in prayer!
Together our prayers make a difference!
With much love, The Downings
