Timothy and Angelita Downing

Missionaries to Ecuador

Missions Focus: Teaching in the Church of God seminary and assisting with Children of Promise and other programs meeting social needs. Timothy was raised in the Breiel Boulevard Church of God in Middletown, Ohio. A passion for missions was planted in his heart by his parents Darlene and Cordell and his grandmother Ruth. He received his call to ministry on a short-term mission trip to Panama. To prepare for this calling, he attended Mid-America Christian University. Angelita was born in Wisconsin to Manuel and Tomasa Garcia. She worshiped and served in her local congregation from a young age. She transferred to Mid-America Christian University during her sophomore year of college, where she and Timothy met. After getting married, the Downings served Christ in pastoral ministry in Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Ohio. They have four children: Timothy, 12; Esperanza, 8; Ezequiel, 3; and Elias, 1. Another child is expected in April. The Downing family prayer is: “Allow us to see Christ clearly so we may follow him closely.” It is that heart cry that has led them to missionary service in Ecuador. Timothy, Angelita, and their children are committed to serving Christ in Ecuador by training leaders at S.E.T.E. (Church of God seminary) and assisting with the Children of Promise program.
