Homeschool fun

Kind of as a year-end/goodbye activity Peter organized a special meal and a time for the homeschool youth to share with each other and their families some of their work in the past month.  Peter had been teaching WW2 history and the kids each had their timelines and maps.  It was a fun time.  I'm so thankful for Peter's ministry and help with the families down here.

A quick trip home

If blogs had feelings, I'm sure mine would be feeling very neglected at the moment.  About 3 weeks ago, I flew back to the states for a quick visit.  The main reason for the trip was to meet with the AFLC missions board.  In addition, I was also able to connect with my work, family, and many friends.  As I look back over the time, I'm amazed at the way the Lord worked out all the details.
I arrived back in Ecuador last Friday.  Unfortunately, my luggage got lost along the way.  The airline called and said they have found the luggage and it should be arriving here in Cuenca tomorrow.  Please pray everything arrives safely.
Here are some pictures of my time in the states.

Nabon with Peter

These pictures are a little out of order, but since I had forgotten to post them, I'll do it now. 

Holy Week Camp

This past Thur, Fri, and Sat. the Paz de Dios church had Holy Week Camp.  The retreat center was located on the warm, wet, costal plains about 2.5 hours away from Cuenca.
The theme of the camp was Holy Week and "The Culture of Noise" and how we are often so bombarded with noise that we can't hear the Lord speak to us.  Our culture has so much noise, it can not think.  We are always listening to something: TV, radio, iPod, etc.
I shared one session focusing on the technology used to make the noise.  I was also in charge of the cabin of teenage and collage-age guys.  I have to say they were some of the best behaved guys I've worked with.  They were responsible, so I didn't really need to lay down many rules, and yet they knew how to have fun.  We had a lot of good laughs together.
I was thankful not to have a lot of responsibilities this retreat.  I felt like I was able to get some much needed rest.
