.- The Technological University of Loja in Ecuador announced that the 2010 Idente Mission titled, “Disciples and Missionaries of Christ, Let’s Evangelize Ecuador,” will bring young missionaries from around the country together August 13-21.
According to organizers, the purpose of the Idente Mission is to combine the spreading of the faith with service to the community according to the Lord’s mandate: “Go throughout the whole world and proclaim the Gospel.”
“Filled with the love of God, which is expressed concretely in love of neighbor, the mission is based on two main objectives: to evangelize and to serve. The young missionaries share their lives with people they encounter on mission,” organizers said. They bring the people the “joy of the gospel” and put “their knowledge at the service of human and spiritual development of their brethren who are most in need,” organizers said.
“Keeping in mind that the first mission territory is one’s own self,” they added, the young missionaries “enter into a process of comprehensive formation, which synthesizes excellence in their profession with a commitment to the community.”
