We made it! We finally arrived in Misahualli, and I couldn’t be more excited. Today has been a long but fun day. We woke up around eight, ate breakfast at the hostel, and then got on the road.
The ride was beautiful; we passed through Quito, drove through the mountains, and then stopped in the city of Baños where we ate lunch and did some shopping in the marketplaces.
After lunch, we then traveled to a cable car where we zipped over a gorge and got an up-close look at a gigantic waterfall. It was beautiful!
After three more hours on the road, we made it to Misahualli, ate dinner, and then sang and worshipped together.
We finished the night with an intense game of soccer in the street, and of course, the Ecuadorian kids schooled us all.
The first part of our adventure has made me so hopeful for the rest of our trip. I can already tell our team has such a strong bond, and I am so excited to see what the Lord has in store for us. To the mamas and dads back at home, we love and miss y’all! Please keep us in your prayers as we start our week and get to work and VBS!
