Aschmann, Richard & Betty

Serving in Ecuador | Acct # 10107


Rick and Betty serve in Ecuador among the Quichua Indians. Rick’s ministry focuses on leadership training, literature production, Bible translation, and church planting in the Quichua Indian language.


Rick and his family served for many years in a cooperative agreement between Mission to the World (MTW) and Wycliffe Bible Translators, working in Colombia from 1981 to 1994. His first wife, Heidi Marie, died in 1997 after a long battle with cancer. In 1998 Rick was reassigned to Ecuador to work in the Quichua Indian language.


Rick and Betty met in Ecuador in 1999 and married in 2000. Betty served with HCJB Global from 1992 until she married Rick. She worked in an international television production studio, producing Christian programs in Spanish for Latin America. She continues to produce videos on an occasional basis.


After a two-year church-planting internship in Bogotá, Colombia, Rick was ordained as a pastor. In 2015 the Aschmanns returned to Ecuador to begin a new church-planting work among the Quichua Indians. Rick has also been involved in Bible translation projects in two of the Quichua languages of Ecuador to provide God’s Word in the heart language of the Quichua people.
