We have been “busy bees’ pulling together the final details and securing and understanding our roles while in Quito. We have been preparing to become teachers, mentors, roommates, community members, tourists, friends, and God’s vessels during our busy week. I have seen how acquiring these roles has been challenging, especially since we have had only a few months to prepare. But, I have been a witness to the fruits of the challenges as we are melding together, seeking the best interests of the team. I have no doubt that our actions will be God-centered and will speak volumes to those who we meet. And, I know that our actual words to the children and staff at Rey Sabio Salomón school will be an encouragement as they echo Proverbs 16:14, which says, “Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul & health to the body.”
And, truthfully, as I look out on the snow and experience the cold, I also look forward to milder temperatures at the equator! 🙂
Hasta más tarde!
