Here we go!

We are excitedly awaiting the first leg of our journey to Quito.  The volume and energy in our corner of the gate at Hopkins has others around us wondering what’s so special about us!  WE know….and we hope it shows!

We should be in Houston by 2:30 and then a couple hour layover until we board the l-o-n-g flight to Ecuador.  By the time we get to our hostel it will be 1:00 Sunday morning.  It will be fun to see everyone waking up for church on Sunday….IN ECUADOR!

Many thanks to everyone for the wonderful send-off and for the prayers!

Here we go!



11 Dias mas!!!

Eleven more days until we depart for our Ecuador adventure! You can feel the mid semester energy rising across campus, but within each member of our team there is sure to be a very special excitement for what lies ahead…11 more days!

You know that kid game called “Two truths and a lie?”.
Guess mine:
1. I speak enough Spanish to fake my way through a thwarted conversation.
2. I have been to Ecuador before so I don’t expect to be challenged by anything new.
3. I am humbled by the hearts of the young people I am fortunate to be traveling with.

How about you?

Cena tipico

Great fellowship tonight! We enjoyed cena tipico ( a typical dinner) of Ecuadorian food ( including yummy desserts) prepared by Nancy Varian and Rosie Gregg! Gracias, amigos!

We also learned about last year’s adventures, saw great pictures, and learned a few travel tips from a few members of last year’s team! Thanks Chelsea, Kirsten, Jenny and Maddie!

We are just weeks away from our trip and are eager to see what God has planned!


Team Ecuador 2013

The 2013 Ecuador Team is off to Quito in less than a month!  Energy, excitement, and anxiety are growing 🙂  God has blessed each member of this unique team with gifts which will come together to glorify Him through the very special ministry in which we will be engaged! 

All are welcome to join us, albeit vicariously, as we seek His face and His purpose in all that we do while we are in Quito.  We ask your prayers for safe travels from March 2 through the 9th.  We welcome also your prayers specifically for the children, staff, and families of Nuevos Amigos!
