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

1st time for Amanda and I preaching together in our territory
Amanda looks back at some of the hills we climbed
This morning just Amanda and I went out - she didn't have Chinese witnessing today so I got to have her company We were up in the hills and my lungs are still not used to the altitude so had to come home a little early because I was feeling really dizzy. We didn't get to talk to many people - the first 20 houses were part of an apartment block and we had to use the intercom - pretty hard to get people to come down to the gate and even the ones that said they would, didn't show! We talked to a couple of Senoras who were more interested in finding out where we were from but at least we were able to converse with them ( a year ago I would have floundered a lot more - progress!)
