Currently Serving in Loja, Ecuador

Who I Am

The Lord has placed a burden on my heart for those who do not know Him and I am answering His call and continuing to walk in His steps to pursue cross-cultural ministry.

In December of 2020, I graduated from Liberty University with a Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies and a minor in Spanish. Last year, I also completed my TESL Certification and am thankful the Lord has provided these opportunities to be trained for global work!

I recently moved to Ecuador and will be serving in the city of Loja: one of the most unreached places in the country. Please pray about partnering with what God is doing through my efforts.

In Him,

Susan Dion Daughtridge

Arrival and Adjustments

I arrived in Loja at the end of January and have been quite busy learning culture and language, working regularly on two ministry teams, and finding my daily routine. I've been trying new foods, meeting new people, starting online trainings, and meeting with mentors and team members! It has been a very exciting season, yet a challenging one. Thank you for all your messages and prayers since I have arrived! Click here to read about my first two months back in Ecuador.

Feb. & Mar. 2021

Apr. - Jun. 2021

Ecuadorians wanting to practice their English has been a great tool for the truth of Scripture to be heard and discussed in meaningful conversations. Please be praying for government restrictions and COVID cases here to lower so we can continue building relationships again face to face! Click here to find out more about our English Conversation ministry with young people here in Ecuador!

Jul. - Sept. 2021

Our goal with REFF is to work with young people and University Students in Loja where many are non-believers and would be exposed to the gospel message. Other participants would be discipled along the way at a personal level who already know Jesus! After about a year and a half of the ministry not operating in person, the Lord (in His timing) has safely allowed us to have meetings in Loja again! Click here to read more about how the Lord has been opening doors for us to use English as a means to communicate God’s truth.

Oct. - Nov. 2021

As I have prayed and sought the Lord for His plans of what is next after my current term in Ecuador finishes, a door has opened for the next season. Click here to read more about a new door the Lord has opened before me and how He has been working in Loja the last few months!
