Bill and Connie McDonald arrived in Ecuador as missionaries in 1989. Since they arrived, they have pioneered the Pentecostal Evangelical church in the Andean region of Ecuador, headed the Latin American Childcare (LACC) program to plant schools with a Christ-centered focus throughout the nation, and founded the Unsión Foundation and Unsión Television. Today, thousands of lives are being touched on a daily basis throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Unsión Ministries continues to move toward its goal of reaching 500 million in the Hispanic world, and their church planting movement is growing in momentum. Email Bill and Connie at

Since her salvation at the age of 25, Melissa Pabón has served in a variety of ministry and administrative roles in her local church, including church secretary for more than 12 years. She began learning Spanish at 8 years of age in the public school system, igniting a love for the language and the people who speak it that led her to study Spanish through middle and high school, into college. By joining the Unsion team in May 2015, God has combined her desire to serve others with her love of Hispanic culture, while utilizing her office experience to assist with development of the Unsion Foundation in the US.

After serving almost a year in Cuenca, Ecuador, with veteran missionaries Bill and Connie McDonald, we have returned to the states to build a support team to return.

While in Cuenca among many other things, we assisted with MAPS teams,opened a coffee shop, and started outreaches to plant churches in the remote communities among the Andes Mountains.

Our hearts were captured by the people and the huge need for someone to travel to these communities that have been ignored and desperately need to hear the message of God's love.

We have served in our church and community in some capacity since we were teenagers. The life change to foreign missions is not one we take lightly but believe God has called us into. Email the Oliver's at

On their most recent trip to Ecuador, in June 2014, the Lord birthed a desire in Jeremy and Tiffany Riggs for the people of this great country and compelled us to return with our children on a long-term basis to partner with the Unsion Foundation. They quickly said YES! Jeremy fuses together his passion for technology with a relevant message to reach the lost and educate believers. With 20 years experience in TV broadcast the Riggs will be working to create new quality programs, enhance current production, and capture new audiences. Email the Riggs family at
