Mark and I went to serve in Ecuador as needgreaters in 2008. Our daughter Amanda joined us in 2010 and is serving in the Chinese group in Cuenca. Aaron, our son has also taken on the challenge of learning the language and culture of this beautiful land and arrived in July 2011.
We had to return to New Zealand in 2012 but have arranged things to be able to return to Ecuador August 2013

A weekend in the bustling metropolis - Taumarunui!
This scary sign may have something to do with why they don't get heaps of visitors in Taumarunui! The locals are very cool - a little crazy but hey ain't that just the best way to be! Aaron going into the KH Some of the 60 million sheep we have here in New Zealand
Mark was privileged to give a talk in Aaron s new congo - Taumarunui. It is a very pretty albeit small town in the middle of the North Island. Not a place that I have ever spent any time in because - let's face it - why would we go there? However now I am looking forward to going back some time. As I say it is a very pretty part of the country and in places reminded me of the mountains in Ecuador - except of course all the sheep that we have here! We met some awesome folks and enjoyed our time there with them. Aaron is settling in nicely and has started himself a little business to help support himself - fixing computers (of course). Of course he is yet to get any paying customers but hey - these things take time, I am sure he will do well.l
