ecuador3Overseas Partner:

Semisud Seminary has hosted the DCF team several times. They provide room and board, breakfast and dinner meals, and a wonderful campus for us to worship the Lord. The Verbo Church provides space for our clinic to operate and also provides volunteers to allow everything to run smoothly during the clinic hours.
