Hi All,
Just wanted to let everyone know that we got into Ecuador safe and sound! We had 22 hours of travel but it is thankfully over. Today our roommate Vanessa had to work so we took the opportunity to unpack and adjust our bodies to the very high altitude. Really it was an excuse to be bums for the day. We had our first meeting with our new congregation. Everyone was very friendly and we are so excited to make new friends from all over the world. During the meeting a brother came up to Vanessa and asked her to sit with 2 new girls who had no publications. After the meeting they explained that someone had left a meeting invitation at their house while the friends were doing census last week. Vanessa gave them Bibles and Bible Teach books and explained the Bible study program which they accepted. Being super sweet and wanting to help us out Vanessa arranged for Ariel and I to take one study each :) The easiest studies of our lives! Sorry no pictures yet, we shall post some soon!
