Huge Game Night to Benefit Medical Missions Trip

Enjoy a night of games--over 70 to choose from--while you support a medical missions trip to Ecuador. The event ¡Ayúdanos a ayudar! Ecuador 2018 (Help Us Help Ecuador 2018) will have board games, party games, card games, and family-friendly games set up, as well as snacks. It’s a great idea for date night or for a group activity, and families are welcome as well.

It’s May 12th, from 3:00-10:00 pm at the Main Office Auditorium (1340 Community Park Dr., 43229). The suggested donation is $5 for admission, with an additional donation for a dinner served at 6:00 pm. Adult beverages are welcome but the event is BYOB.

You can play any of the dozens of games available including Carcassonne, Pandemic, and Ticket To Ride, and more obscure titles like Nuns on the Run and Hanamikoji. There’ll also be Jackbox Games on a giant projector so you can play with a group, and a Magic the Gathering Tournament.

You can see a full list of what’ll be available at playforecuador.com. If you’re new to a particular game there’ll be people on hand to help you understand how to play.

Money raised from the event will support two members of a short-term missions team traveling to Ecuador in September. One of them is Katie Mustacchio, who’ll serve as a translator and also took part in a trip there a few years ago. “We were able to give general medicine, pediatric, optician or dental services to 1,782 patients as well as provide 2,304 needed prescriptions! Even more spectacular is that the evangelism team of native Ecuadorians had individual conversations with every patient who received a service. It seems that hundreds of patients made a decision to invite Jesus' forgiveness & healing into their lives during our medical brigade!”

The game night also will support the costs of team member Ritu Sharma. She says she’s looking forward to using her nursing skills to meet both physical and spiritual needs, and she’ll be considering if God has bigger plans. “I want to see if I want to do long-term missions, and if this is where God is leading me.”
