Some of you may have been confused by the change of plans...I am now scheduled to leave for Ecuador around the middle of January. I will begin in Quito, where the plan is to focus on the language and the group of Cristo Vive volunteers there. We hope to gain a strong base of leadership there, much like the one in Guayaquil, so that when we hold camps there, we won't necessarily have to send workers from Guayaquil to Quito. This will also help with the campers that we have in Quito, as it is important to maintain contact with them and their families throughout the year.
There is still much to be done before I leave...mainly fund raising. It is interesting trying to plan for all that I will need and to gather it a whole year in advance. I am looking at purchasing a laptop and other equipment which will make my job much simpler. I covet your prayers during these last couple of months with my family and friends here.
Happy Thanksgiving...we have so much to be thankful for...Let's live a life of gratitude.
