Darryl and Kelly Chambers

D. K. Chambers
 
While attending the 100th anniversary celebration of One Mission Society in July 2001, Darryl and Kelly Chambers experienced a call on their lives to go into full-time missionary service. In May 2005, along with their children Josh and Courtney, they left Texas to begin their ministry in Quito, Ecuador.
 
Darryl and Kelly work as district liaisons in the central district of Ecuador. As liaisons, they work directly with 17 churches, providing support in various ways to help strengthen and multiply those churches.  “We have been so blessed to walk alongside our Ecuadorian brothers and sisters, providing support and encouragement to them and working together to reach the lost.”
 
They also run the OMS guest house in Quito. They are responsible for providing lodging and meals for teams with OMS, as well as other mission organizations that go to Ecuador for short-term ministry. “Over the past eight years, God has given us the privilege of investing our lives into hundreds of people who have come to Ecuador in obedience to God’s direction in their lives. It has been a tremendous blessing to work alongside so many incredible people in the building of His kingdom in Ecuador.”
 
The Lord spent many years preparing Darryl and Kelly to serve Him in Ecuador. Darryl learned to work hard at an early age and, in the process, was recognized for his leadership and administrative skills by the company with which he was employed for 25 years. His ability to work with people, his managerial skills and his gift of building relationships are key elements in directing the visiting groups, running the guest house and working with the nationals. Kelly spent five years in Ecuador as an MK—learning the language, adapting to the culture and loving the people. When she returned to Texas for her university studies, she obtained a bilingual certification along with her education degree. She has been actively using the Spanish language ever since. God has used her cross-cultural experiences and her ability with the language to open many doors for serving Him.
 

It is through the faithfulness and generosity of God’s people that the Chambers family continues to fulfill His call to missions. “We have been so blessed to be a part of what God is doing around the world. We have been inspired daily by those who have dedicated their lives to Christ’s service. We praise God for the impact they have had on our lives and for the privilege He has given us to serve Him in Ecuador.”
