.- Top Evangelical leaders in Ecuador met with the president of the Bishops’ Conference of Ecuador, Archbishop Antonio Arregui, in order to show their support for the Catholic Church’s position on the controversial new Constitution being promoted by the government.

Jose Medina, a member of the Council of Elders of the Evangelical Church, and Pedro Medina, president of the Evangelical Laity of Ecuador, attended a meeting at the Archdiocese of Guayaquil to show their solidarity with Archbishop Arregui, who has been the target of criticism by the government, and express their support for the Catholic position.

“We wish to express to you our most sincere support for the work you are carrying out in defense and in benefit of life and the family in Ecuador,” Pedro Molina said.

“We would like to take this opportunity to not only support your work but also your statement, which encompasses the thinking of the Church and the Christian people of Ecuador,” he added.

Archbishop Arregui thanked the leaders for the support.  ‘I reiterate my gratitude to the lay Evangelicals of Ecuador who are represented here.  It is a joy to learn that the common Christian heritage of speaking out in defense of the family, life and peace is a top priority,” he said.

The Council of Elders of the Evangelical Church is the highest church authority for evangelicals in the country and brings together the more than seven thousand Evangelical denominations present in Ecuador.
