Making Disciples of Christ in Ecuador

Preparing for our trip: A flood of feelings

  • Published in Blog

 

 

 As many of you might have heard, we are going to Ecuador for a 2-week trip. The purpose of this trip is to prepare us for moving there. We will get to know personally the team we will be working with and different towns and cities where we may be working. You can call it a vision or a survey trip. If you haven’t seen our latest newsletter, here is the link. It will give an update as to what we have been doing the last couple months.

Ingapirca

  • Published in Blog

 

Ingapirca is a small town in the Cañar province of Ecuador (to the north of Loja).  It’s known because it contains the largest Inca ruins in Ecuador.  I won’t give a detailed history lesson on the location (you can read this Wikipedia article if you want) but I’d like to say a few things about it.

Praying to the Lord of the Harvest

Right now I'm sitting here enjoying a cup of Ecuadorian horchata.  The name horchata is familiar to me since I've probably drank gallons of it over just the last couple years.  Yet the horchata I'm familiar with is nothing like this.  I'm familiar with the Mexican or Salvadorian horchata which its base is either rice or morro.  This horchata carries the same name I'm so familiar with, yet it's completely different in color, flavor, and temperature.

Waiting

 (Don't wait until it loads.  It's just a picture.  :) )

 

Sometimes waiting can be the hardest thing someone can do.  We can reflect and imagine that everyone else is going forward and we are just sitting back and waiting.  The fact is, this isn't the case and even if it was the case the truth is that God uses the waiting period to shape us.  As I'm sure all of you know, our first daughter, Aletheia was born just weeks ago.  Throughout the 40+ weeks of the pregnancy, we were waiting.  At first it was exciting and new but towards the end we were ready for the birth.  We felt like we had waited enough and were ready to move on to the next stage of life.  The fact is that if Aletheia would have been born weeks earlier she or Karen's body wouldn't have been ready for the birth.  Try taking a cake out of the oven 20 minutes before it's ready and you don't have much more than a mess.  That's how we are when we try to rush things, do things on our own, and do all we can to avoid waiting.
