Ecuador Trip 2016 - Sunday - Monday

Sunday we woke up bright and early after a late night to go to San Pablos church. The service was very moving. The whole congregation learned part of a song in English just for us and the whole congregation came together in a heart felt prayer session for one of the members dealing with an illness. After church we had lunch at BBQ Pinchinchas where we took a few church members to talk to about their mission at the church, school, and neighborhood. We then burned off our large meal by walking down the hill to the school to get a feel for the neighborhood we are working in. We then headed to the mall in the center of Quito to look at the stores, which were very similar to our stores in America, and buy some groceries for the week. The grocery store was very busy and took a while to make our way through. After getting back to Extreme Response and unloading, we walked down the street to get some fresh bread for dinner and we made pasta.

Monday we traveled to the school where we first watched a music and dance performance by the students. Then we talked to a few of the administrators about their pillars for educating the students and were given a new critical thinking game to try to solve. It was rather hard! Then we went to recess with the children and played a game. We observed in the classrooms the rest of the school day and then helped to paint some of the trim in a hallway. Then we were off to dinner at La Tios for pizza. We tried the Hawaiian pizza with pineapples and ham on it as well as the custom pizza that had peaches, pineapples, and ham. They were both very good! We had a long walk back up the hill to Extreme but it helped to burn off all those pizza calories.

 

Tomorrow we get to teach! Very exciting! Praying the Lord will help with the language barrier and the next few days will go smoothly.

  17. Nice shoes I bought these shoes for my wife and I for running and other outdoor activities because I naturally run up on my forefoot and I hate wearing shoes with all the extra padding that only adds bulk. We have had them for several months now and I no longer get shin splints when I run and find that I like walking around barefoot (real barefoot) much more now. Go easy when you… free rap beats
