It is hard to believe its only been two weeks here in Ecuador! It seems so much longer... Not sure if its the altitude, cultural adjustment, language and life assimilation or the simple fact that Ann isn't here to pick up after us? All three families are adjusting well while trying to navigate a technological tightrope with WiFi to stay in touch with home. Today, the orphanage had its annual reunion in which several hundred people showed to celebrate their time here. God is still in the business of changing lives and it was evident on the faces of the parents, grandparents and children. There was prayer, traditional Ecuadoran dancing and a contemporary dance performance in which Maggie, Kayla, Katelyn and Lydia participated with other E -kids their age. They did well with less than a weeks practice! The last two weeks have been filled with getting adjusted and this week we're gearing up for our first teams this upcoming weekend. In addition, our niece Kirby will be joining us thursday coming fresh from Peru serving at another orphanage. Please pray that we are properly prepared and that the Lord determines the appointments and outcomes for the week!
Que Dios le bendiga!
