Meet some special people

Jacob and Inga
We had the honour of having Amanda's CO and his wife around for lunch  yesterday and what an inspiring couple! They serve the language groups and congregations in all of Ecuador! 7 Different languages in total - not that they know 7  different languages but are well on their way with chinese, english and spanish! Although they are new on the circuit- they told us of some of the things they can expect. One of them I have to tell you about...
In the far north there are still tribes that don't wear any clothes. Well the brothers arranged for the women of one of the tribes to recieve blouses to wear to the meetings. Can you imagine the surprise when they did indeed turn up wearing the blouses but with certain changes. I mean how could they feed their babies wearing shirts...well they just cut holes in them  so that the necessary feeding areas are free as a breeze! I can only imagine the poor brother giving the talk - Mark said he probably kept his eyes on the clock on the back wall - hope he wasn't counciled later on for no audience contact!
So we are really looking forward to Jacob and Inga's next visit - I bet they will have many more hilarious stories to tell.
