Well, I've been avoiding the posting for the past few weeks as things have been busy. I was asked to participate in a ten-day Humanitarian Aid trip to Ecuador to accompany a Dentist. Thanks to the good people here in the District that helped to free up my schedule to make that possible. 4 1/2 days of seeing citizens of Quevedo, Ecuador (about 300 of them), and doing what we could to help in the community. It was a great experience. I spent some time in Ecuador 18 years ago as a missionary for my church, and in this town, and it was good to share some time with the people again. I've got a lot of blog posting to catch up on, so I apologize if some of the posts this weekend appear dated.
