On our way to church plant in Southern Spain!
We are Rev Gaston and Lucy Echeguia. We are originally from Uruguay, and have been blessed to be able to live and minister in Canada for the past 33 years. I, Gaston, was completely an atheist when I met my lovely wife. After 7 months of dating, I accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour. We sealed our love in marriage just two months later. My life completely turned 180 degrees and for our whole married life we have committed to serve the Lord with all our hearts. I graduated Master's College and Seminary followed by a Master's at Olivet del Nazareno University and pastored. Lucy is very devoted to evangelizing. She is a leader in praying along with women. Lucy is dedicated and enjoys organizing events that benefit missionary work. We have truly seen the Power of our Lord as we complement each other for His Glory. Together we planted the Iglesia Hacedores de Historia church in Toronto and also pastored the Casa de Pan church in Milton. Being part of these congregations and ministering in their communities filled our lives with Joy. We have been very blessed with 3 daughters and 4 grandchildren.
In 2019, God allowed us the opportunity to go to Spain. While we were there, God moved our hearts and we felt a weight for all the souls who do not know the gospel. Upon returning from our trip, we started to pray for confirmation and guidance to see if we should go to Spain to sow the Word, plant churches, and encourage the next generation of God-fearing leaders.
Today, in the midst of a world pandemic, the Lord has opened doors in a powerful and supernatural way! In early 2022, we will begin pastoring in Polígono Norte en Sevilla, Spain on a 2 year assignment. After that, we will keep sowing where the Lord takes us. We invite you all to be part of this calling as we raise funds and prayerfully prepare for our assignment in Eurasia!
