We send our greetings from our wintry mountain.
The kids are doing great here and seem to be having an amazing time working, sharing the gospel and their testimonies, and just enjoying the creation that God has set before us.
Since Thursday, the kids have continued cleaning the roof to be painted and actually painting. It looks so good when you’re driving up the mountain and see bright blue roofs in the midst of the green and brown fields. They have also helped fix some doors around the property and have been digging for parts of the Obstacle Course.
The team will not be going to share their presentation at the school today, but will be going tomorrow instead. They will continue with the digging and painting and hopefully be able to begin work on some plumbing as well as a covering to protect the truck from the elements.
On Saturday, we are hoping to take the kids out for a day of fun. There is a park where they can go zip-lining, bike riding, rock climbing, and even swimming because it’s warm enough there! We are still checking on prices, but it looks doable for a special 4th of July celebration.
Here are a few words from the team members:
Chris: First off, the experience here in is Ecuador is so much better than Boot Camp for many reasons including the weather and living conditions. Just being here to witness to children and spend time with them has been amazing. I’m looking forward to experiencing many once-in-a-lifetime things with this team.
Ellie:Ecuador is a dream! We have been blessed with this opportunity to share Jesus in such a wonderful and friendly environment! We are still growing closer together; we’re essentially a family by now and I’m so blessed that God place these people on my team.
Justin: I’m doing great. The view is gorgeous with this mountain and the clouds. So, yeah.
Austin: I have been enjoying myself here. The weather reminds me of home and I like the people.
Riley: Ecuador is the most beautiful country I have ever seen. It’s so amazing to wake up to the mountains and clouds every morning. I know God is going to do so much with our team and I can’t wait to see what He has in store.
Hannah C.: I am so happy to be in Ecuador. We have only been here a week and I’ve already had some amazing experiences. Seeing the conditions some of the people live in and how dirty they are makes me appreciate my home and shower. Also watching how
