Weekend O' Fun

Wow! We had a busy, but very fun weekend.

Last Thursday afternoon, we had a group from a church in South Quito arrive. This was our first time to have a group of Ecuadorians, and it was exciting in a different way. The church wants to become more involved in missions within the country, and they're trying to do them as low-cost as possible. So... they slept out at the property on the 2nd floor! They were a huge help to Dwight with preparing the bottom floor for the final layer of cement.

On Saturday, we took the older kids out, and they were so excited to be able to work at their new house. The older girls and I were handling the shovels like pro's. ha! After all of the hard work they had an impromptu swim time in the river.... in their clothes. Actually...that's how most of the Ecuadorians in Shell swim. :-)

Sunday, the group led a little church service for all of the school-age kids. We were walking them up to the property, and they were just so excited! After church, we had a lunch of hot dogs and chochos :-)....followed by watermelon by the river. The group left after lunch, and Dwight, Patti Sue and I stayed with the kids swimming for a few more hours. I was exhausted when we got home around 4:00!

I didn't get any pics of the work being done.....only the fun stuff. :-)
