Jim & Lori Rice Give Now

Missions was a common theme that kept reappearing in the lives of Jim and Lori before they were married and then throughout their marriage. For the last sixteen years the Lord took them on a journey that included numerous short-term mission trips to Honduras, Mexico, and Guatemala. Looking back, they can see how God used each mission trip to prepare them for the next step on their journey. In God's time He made it apparent to them that He was calling them to long-term missionary service. He also used their love for Latin America and refined their call to Ecuador. As a result, Global Partners has appointed Jim and Lori to long-term missionary service in Ecuador.

Jim and Lori want to be vessels that are used by God to send His love and light into the lives of those they meet. It is their desire to work alongside church leaders in Ecuador, partnering with them in ministry and encouraging them in their walk with the Lord. Jim would also like to work with and disciple young people while Lori would like to minister to women through one-on-one discipleship and small groups.

Jim and Lori have two grown children, Lauren and Christopher.

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10 NIV).
