Since 2006 Earle Street has been visiting Camp Chacauco in Patate, Ecuador, working with missionaries, Steve and Carol Thompson. With a view of the active volcano Tungurahua, this bustling Baptist camp serves as a seminary, training ground, and retreat center for Ecuadorian Christians during the school year, and as camp for international Christians during the summer. Our projects include vacation Bible Schools, school visits, and painting and construction projects.

Our church partnership with Thailand began with a mission trip in 2018. As partners in the Gospel with our Thai brothers and sisters, we have the opportunity to give, pray, and go. ESBC’s participation includes prison ministry, ESL ministry, market ministry, and refugee work, among others. Our next mission trip is scheduled for the summer of 2023.

Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse that Earle Street Baptist supports each year. We fill shoeboxes with toys, school supplies and hygiene products which are delivered to children outside the U.S. and those living on Native American reservations within the U.S. These children have been affected by war, poverty, natural disasters and/or disease. Many of these children will participate in “The Greatest Journey”, a follow-up discipleship program. Through this program they and their families learn about the love and saving grace of Jesus. More information can be found at www.samaritanpurse.org.
Operation Orange Ribbion
Operation Orange Ribbon raises awareness of the persecution of Christian brothers and sisters around the world. Persecution has risen in the 21st century with 200 million Christians living under some form of persecution or government discrimination. Operation Orange Ribbon tries to shine the light of awareness for them and to generate intercessory prayer at the grass roots level. Financial aid to persecuted families is provided when possible.
