Working Hard in Ecuador – 10006

2010 Ecuador BaseThe Ecuador team is doing well. We have removed the clay tiles in preparation for a new roof.  The septic tank area has been prepared for a concrete top installation.  We have moved the fence and the area where the sand will be delivered was cleaned up.  Moving dirt off the area next to basketball court is about 80% complete.  We have also been removing weeds and moss from sidewalks in preparation for concrete.

The weather has been very cool to cold with temperatures in the 40-60’s. There has been drizzling and rain off and on.

Everyone is healthy.

Thank you for your prayers!

    As a Grandma I am enjoying the opportunity of following my grandson on this mission trip. I pray daily for him and all the teens on this trip. What a wonderful way to spread the word of Christ to all nations.
    Keep up the good work and God Bless.

  2. I too thought that the update on the Zambia site was written by a team member. I was not looking for anything personal from my son, I have just seen other mission groups that “require” the team members to take turns with the updates. It is nice to see the different perspectives of the kids.
    So, we can expect to see biweekly updates? Thanks!! 🙂

    • You will get biweekly updates as long as they are able to send them. It is not always possible when they are in a remote area. And even if they get to “town”, the electricity, phone lines or internet service could be down. They will try to have the team members write testimonies periodically.

    Okay, so the update written by Kenny, the team member on the Zambia Bridge team, was not written by a teen? I was confused. It sounded like it came from a teen’s perspective, which is why I thought Pam’s suggestion was a good one. It sure is fabulous to have this opportunity to read what the team is doing so regularly. Thank you!

    • The leader wrote the update, but Kenny probably wrote a “testimony” that was included in the update.

  4. Wow, you have done a lot in just a few days ! With the low temperature and rain, it must be feeling extra cool. I pray the whole team continue to stay healthy and the Lord grants you all a bright spirit to even up-lift the weather !

    Continue your good work, and we all pray for you back here.

  5. Great questions Debbie!! Checking the website frequently for updates. Would love all the details too 🙂

  6. Thank you so much for the update!! Debbie had some great questions!! Is it possible for the kids to post on the updates? It would be fun to hear their perspectives!! We are praying for you!!

    • No, the kids cannot post updates. The leaders will send in updates biweekly (unless they are in a remote location). They may include testimonies from the team members.

    I’d love to hear answers to Debbie’s questions, too. Plus: how did you celebrate the Fourth?

    Lots of work! Tell us, what is the team doing with the Ecuadorian nationals? Are there opportunities for relationship-building? What are you all eating for your meals? How was the transition to the higher altitude? Was your weekend schedule any different than your weekday schedule? If so, what did the team do? Was there or will there be any chance to worship in the community? How is the grocery-shopping done? Oh, we’d love to hear any and all of the details you could give us! Thank you for taking the extra few minutes to share!

  9. Praying for you and love you. God is using you all in a mighty way. Be encouraged!
