Making Disciples of Christ in Ecuador

What language do they speak in Ecuador?

  • Published in Blog

 

What languages do they speak in Ecuador? According to Ethnologue there are 24 different languages spoken in Ecuador. For a country a little bigger than Colorado, that's quite a bit. However the official language of the country is Spanish and that's what the majority of the people speak. But It's not uncommon at all to hear news or government information in languages like, Quichua, Shuar, or sign language.

What's the weather like in Ecuador?

  • Published in Blog

 

 

The climate in Ecuador is very diverse. If you're looking at the whole country the climate ranges depending on what region you're in: the Amazon rainforest, the Pacific coast, or the Andes mountains. Most of our time will be in the Andes mountains in the southern part of the country. (That's where Loja is.) But even there it's very diverse. You could be in Loja city and on most days it is cloudy or rainy with the temperature around 50-70 year around. Then you might travel an hour to the south and it be much warmer and dryer. Or if you go a couple hours to the east it may be very hot and humid. When we were there we visited a town called Yantzaza. I'd guess the temperature was in the mid 90s and it was very humid.

Difficulties and Joys: Part 2

  • Published in Blog

A lot of things boil down to perspective.  You can put two different people through the same situation and both of them come out seeing it differently.  In the last post I wrote about the struggles or negative aspects of the missionary appointee process we are in.  It has indeed been long and hard on us but we aren't discouraged about it because we can see some of what God is doing in us through it all.  I could turn most of the points around (and I'll do that with some) and show how they have been positive.  God is always at work even in the longest of processes.  

James 1:4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
