Interview

video
Seeing I have been sent home from the kitchen in disgrace (I have an eye infection - not the best thing to have while cooking and serving food), I thought I would put this interview of our Circuit Overseer and his wife together. It is a long video (15 minutes) but they were so interesting to talk to - I am sure you will enjoy it.
Peter is Canadian but has been here since he was small and Isabel is a native Ecuadorian (you would never guess that by her accent though). I am sad we did not get to spend more time with them while they were staying with us but duty called I am afraid.
There was a lot of good stuff that I had to cut out of the interview unfortunately - however I hope what did make the final cut gives you the right impression of this lovely couple. They have made the service of Jehovah their careers and are an inspiration to us all. They also went through a very stressful time recently with Peter having to return to Canada for a major operation - it was touch and go for awhile - but thankfully all is good now and they are able to continue with their assignment to the joy and relief of everyone here.

So make yourselves a cup of tea and relax for 15 minutes while you listen to their story...

Just wanted to say that we have really enjoyed reading your blog. I was trying to research information on Cuenca when I stumbled across it. We will be visiting Guayaquil, and hopefully also the English convention and possibly even Cuenca in a few weeks. We are considering a move there in the future but wanted to visit to learn more about the need-greater work there first. Your blog has already answered a lot of questions on our minds about serving there, and has made us laugh at times along the way too. It has been very informative and encouraging and is much appreciated. Keep up the good work there in Cuenca!

what a lovely example they are - you will have to tell them that we all enjoyed it - loved the fish story - but the toilet paper is a crack up -just shows what we all take for granted huh?

That was a wonderful interview and great story. Thank you so much for posting that. I am sure after spending some time with them you can't help but want to spend more with them. I am married to Peter and Isabel's niece Andrea. And we recently were able to spend a week with the both of them. They are such a wonderful loving and encouraging couple. They are so full of many many stories relating to the full time work. With all of those stories and the love they display for Jehovah, you just can't help but want to share in the full time work right alongside the both of them. And even though not all of us can, we certainly do in our hearts. We miss them both dearly. And hopefully in due time, we will be right back down there in Ecuador with all of you to stay. It's so wonderful to see so many pushing the truth into every corner of the earth. All of our love to you all. And I will have to keep checking in on your blog from time to time. Enjoy the convention this weekend.
