Tiputini is a rural area located in the province of Orellana, Ecuador, with an average of 600 inhabitants and which can only be accessed by river boat. Bryan Espín and Isaías Abad, two young colporteurs, arrived carrying hope on the printed page, with the goal of selling the greatest amount of material ever sold in this region of the Ecuadorian Amazon.
After several hours of traveling by boat, they finally arrived at Tiputini with suitcases full of books to distribute and with their trust placed in God that their objective would be achieved. The campaign began, and these two young students of Peruvian Union University (UPeU) visited the local residents house-to-house. After six days, the two had sold books to the sum of $6,000.
Even in these difficult times due to COVID-19, the publications department of the Adventist Church was motivated to continue bringing hope with creativity and the necessary care. In the same way, young people and adults who work in the noble work of canvassing also had to rethink strategies to continue with their service.
Thanks to the work of these brave young people, the people of Tiputini learned about the message of hope through the distributed book “The Mystery of Prophecy.”
“The faith and dedication of these two young men is proof that the publishing ministry is also an end-time ministry,” says Pastor Nelson Naula, publishing director for northern Ecuador.
