Ecuador Mission Trip - Day 6

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Today was our last full day here in Ecuador and it's one we will never forget.  We spent all morning at a school loving on kids and playing soccer.  The school was located in a very poor part of town, so it was fun to see the smiles that our team brought to the kids faces.   After playing for hours, we got to feed all 300 kids.  Compassion International supports most of the kids at this school, so it was fun to see this incredible ministry in action.  

Tonight, a local pastor and his wife prepared an authentic Ecuadorian dinner for our team.  It was a great way to end our time here in Ecuador.

You know...our team came on this trip to be a blessing to the people of Ecuador but we find ourselves as the blessed ones as we leave this beautiful country.  It has been a life-changing trip and really fun to watch the Lord open up the guys eyes and hearts to God's Kingdom.  The Creator we serve and love transcends culture, language, and social class.  It is one thing to see it on the TV, but it is another thing to see it, taste it, hear it, and feel it.  We are so grateful for how the Lord used us and changed us at the same time. Praise God! 

We are headed home tomorrow morning.  Our bus leaves at 4:00am so we are going to bed!  Thanks again for praying for our trip.  God is good!

Me encantan todos estos videos!! And I'm loving the Carlos Vives and the Spanish Christian songs in the background. Fabuloso!

I have so enjoyed following you guys in Ecuador. What an unbelievable experience for everyone involved!
