July 2012 – Ecuador Mission Trip Update – Thursday

Today we were back in Quito.  We spent the day getting things in order for the ladies conference, ordered food, and stopped for desert.

The ladies that attended, are members of Un Solo Corazon Church and many have very hard lives.  Each week two of the families go from house to house to find recyclable items in the garbage to provide for their families.  Others work very hard jobs.

In the afternoon, the church was transformed into a beautiful dining room ready for the ladies.  As they arrived, we gathered and shared some fun games and Traci had them singing along with uplifting music.

We moved to the area where the tables were set up, and Rob prepared the plates, as Susan, Traci and Nancy served the ladies Chinese food, followed by chocolate cake.  They enjoyed the meal and ate all the food we had and were standing in line for more.

Nancy shared a message with the ladies from Psalm 139 and had the ladies repeating to each other, “you are fearfully and wonderfully made.”  The ladies left after having been prayed for individually and receiving a gift of the jewelry and toiletry items the team brought.

We were humbled as the ladies presented us with cards they had hand made for each of us.  The smiles on their faces said it all.  Our heart were blessed and our lives will never be the same.
