My oldest daughter, Kayla, and I had the opportunity to travel to Ecuador with Christ in Youth and our church youth group this past two weeks. It was such a great learning experience for both of us. Our team was there to do construction work on some churches, help with Vacation Bible Schools for the the children, and to do street evangelism and home visitation. The above picture shows us in clown make-up. Part of the Vacation Bible School and street evangelism consisted of clowns and puppet presentations for the young children. We worked in the towns of Guayaquil, Baba, and El Recreo.
We learned a little Spanish while we were there, but most of our communication was through body language. The people of Ecuador are very loving and welcomed us with open arms. Many responded to the message of Christ and His gift of eternal life. Many who had little hope have found hope and love through Christ.
