Off to Ecuador

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

One of my highlights each year is taking old K-Kountry kids on a mission trip somewhere in the world to help expand their vision for the Kingdom and love for God´s people.  It is always so fun to watch the Lord impact and change these guys lives each year.

This week, there are 10 of us in Ecuador, South America serving the native Shuar Indians.  After several plane trips, and a night in Miami...we have arrived in Quito and settled into our hotel for the night.  At dinner tonight, we were able to connect with K-1 staff and Kanakuk legend, Caleb Freeman, who is studying here in Ecuador for the semester.

Tomorrow, we are up early and on the bus for a 5 hour drive over the Andes Mountains as we head into the jungle.  We will get dropped of in Shell and then Missionary Avaiation Fellowship will fly us into the jungle village of Kutshka on a bush plane!  I think all the guys are really excited for the adventure ahead. 

In the jungle, we will be delievering medical supplies to these remote villages and helping build a platform for a school playground.  I´m sure we will fit in a soccer game or two while we are there. 

Obviously, there are no computers or internet in the this will be our last update until Sunday.  We are scheduled to hike out of the jungle (8 hour hike...yikes) and then another long bus ride back to it will be a long day.  We are scheduled to visit the Indian Market, the equator, and the volcano on Sunday and Monday.  We will post video and updates once we get back to Quito. 

Please pray for our time in the jungle as we litterally take the gospel to the ends of the earth.
