Dear Friends and Family,

the Ecuador update

November 2011

It has been 86 days since we officially accepted the call to join the Youth World team in Ecuador and it has been an exciting journey! Heres whats been happening in our lives over the last few weeks Transition to the Midwest On October 6th we loaded up the car and said goodbye to the East Coast in order to reconnect with family and friends in the Midwest. We enjoyed a non-eventful trip and were only required to cover the luggage on top of the car once during the last 30 minutes of the drive during a short bout of rain. Weve included a picture of our car so that you can better appreciate what an answer to prayer the great weather and safe travels were for us! Continued Blessings and Provision!
