Spiritual Emphasis Week

It's spiritual emphasis week at the Bilingue school this week.  There are special crafts, activities, chapel services, and movies.  It was a full day on Monday as week kicked off the week. 
Please be praying the children would be open to the message and that the Lord would touch hearts.  The focus of the week is our identity in Christ.  In the pictures you can see the story/skit about Gideon's pot.  Through the story the children learn that the Lord wants to use what we think are defects (cracks) in our lives to let His light shine through us.

Sunday afternoon with friends

On Sunday afternoon the Saris invited us over for cui and tripa mischqui.  OK, let's make this clear... the invited us to EAT cui and tripa mishqui.  Cui is guinea pig and tripa mishqui is grilled pig intestine.  While maybe not the typical meat at an American grill-out, they are both typical for Ecuador.  It was wonderful fellowship and tasty food.  I so enjoyed the time.
Dario Sari is an elder in the Paz de Dios church, and we've known their family for years.  In fact, my parents worked with Gloria's family before Dario and Gloria were married. 
I've included some fun pictures of jumping over a pond and Peter and I posing next to the girls for a size comparison.

Fishing in Soldados

On Wed, since many people were still off of work, we were able to go trout fishing.  We drove for about 2 hours on rough roads and then walked for about another hour to get to the lake.  Thankfully, our efforts paid off.  We caught 9 fish between the 6 of us.
