The Amazing 16 by Karl von Hillebrandt

Within our group of 27 here in Ecuador, we have 16 AMAZING Teenagers between rising freshmen in high school to rising sophomore in college. This group volunteered their summer time to be here at Antioch School in the jungle at Puerto Misahualli.


They spend their time with the elementary students in the morning and work in the afternoon on improvements at the Antioch school. They were amazing on the first day as they were completely involved in the VBS with 22 very high energy second graders.

Our teenagers showed incredible amount of love with the kids and all left with friends by the end of the program. We came back for a quick lunch and then back to Antioch for our afternoon chores. These chores consisted of hauling 150 pound blocks in wheel barrows, clearing out fields, moving mass amount of debris, etc., etc. (major work!).

After dinner time, our devotion was led by our three timer sophomore at GT, Spencer.


I can’t imagine doing this mission trip without them as they have been such an inspiration and so incredible in handling all of our activities. All parents out there should be extremely proud of this bunch. In closing, QUE DIOS LOS BENDIGA PARA SIEMPRE!
