The ministry continues to be a source of complete and unending joy for us. The people here are really starving for the truth and are such a humble people. The congregation is booming with an average attendance of 180-200 each meeting!
The real news is that right now Chad is on a plane back to the USA for 3 weeks. Why? Well, we have been searching for any type of work that Chad could do from here in Ecuador, but still earn from the USA since our visa here does not permit us to work here. Since our money tank is practically on "E" the search has become even more desperate as we really would like to stay here. So, Chad decided that he will try to sell satellite dishes for "
So, yes, I am alone in a foreign country. Well, techinically alone, but there are a few families here that are looking after me (almost too much!) And then for those of you who know Kami Wake...she is coming on Thursday with her friend Sara. Sara will be here until the end of the month, and Kami for 2 1/2 months. So, I will not be alone at all.
Just wanted to let you all know that I am still alive. I hope to post better, more interesting blogs in the near future! Especially about "the cousins"! We had an absolute blast with them, and miss them here. As I mentioned before, we have been in a drought here. Well, they brought the rain with them, as it rained almost every day while they were here. And, as you may have guessed, it hasn't rained since they left!!! So, a few brothers and sisters have asked if they could please come back and bring the rain with them! hahaha
We miss you all! Some of you will probably see Chad in the next few weeks floating around PA!!
Hi Rachel and the Kemlage family! Thanks for your comment...it was nice to hear from you! Also, to Roxanne from Alaska...welcome to Ecuador...you will love it! As far as English groups go, there is one here in Cuenca. I know they have their Sunday meeting at 11:00am or 11:30am (or last I heard anyway). I can check on the rest for you if you would like and get the actual direction of the KH. As far as I know, Salinas does not have an english group or congregation, but, I do know of a sister that is from the USA that lives there and could help you find the KH if you would like. I don't have her number, but if you would like I could get if for you! Please keep in touch with us, we would love to meet you while you are here in Cuenca and we can help you out with whatever you need. How long will you be here in Cuenca? Anyway, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chao my friends! I hope to blog again in the next year! hahahahaha
