   Mission Projects

We are continuing our support of our work in Ecuador, mainly at the church in Guayllabamba. Here are some photos of our last project in June 2004 where we helped to build a support wall for the river, painted the buildings and put up signage, and completed a recreation area.

We started out with a bunch of bushes and trees that were bulldozed to make the initial ditch.

Everything was formed up and poured, and then we stared on the basketball court.

They ended up with a recreation area and a secure facility from the weather and other elements!

Projects for the futher include finishing out the second floor, building in the classrooms, bathrooms, and a small kitchen, and adding an outdoor playground area.

Information Update

We are getting ready to head out once again on a new adventure, this time to Okinawa, Japan. I have another teaching opportunity, and Steve will be finishing his college degree while working some type of great job (hopefully!)  Our time in Ecuador was great and exactly where God wanted us to be. I took my favorite photos and put them on the Ecuador site, so check it out if you want a little taste of the Equator.
We plan to return each year to continue helping the church in Guayllabamba grow and add on, so keep in touch if you want to be a part of that.

We head out the middle of this month and are looking forward to the totally different cultural experience. Look for pictures in the September News and we should have something exciting and interesting to report!
