GoTeam Ecuador is home safe and sound. Thanks for keeping them in prayer over the last 10 days!
Just a reminder that the team is coming from Toronto AC614 at 5:23pm
It’s almost over. What took so long to prepare has finally come and is now almost done. On Sunday morning we worshipped together with a local Ecuadorian congregation on the east side of Quito. Then it was back to the hotel and time to say goodbye to our World Vision friends and colleagues. After another … More Sunday – A Day for Friendship
Sunday may be the Sabbath but today was the day of rest for our GoTeam. After breakfast, we spent some time at the Museum of the Equator. And do you know what? Water really DOES go down the drain the opposite way in the Southern Hemisphere! We also took a drive through the old downtown … More Saturday – A Day to Exhale
Wow. All I can say is “what a day!” It’s that feeling when the clouds suddenly part and you can clearly see the mountaintop. We had that today. Figuratively and literally.

A short post today because it has bee a long day and we need to get to bed. Today we left Quito by bus and headed north into the Andes mountains.

We spent last night on a banana plantation. And yet the day still had the ability to surprise us with even more new things and experiences.

Today was draining – but draining in a good way. A lot of emotion and energy was drained out of us. Like watching a good play. A play in three acts … Act One – We arrived at a small hillside ADP community outside of Santa Ana where World Vision had helped to install a … More A Day to be Amazed – Tuesday
The day started for our team early – 2:30am to be precise. We were picked up at our hotel in Quito and driven back the the airport for a short flight to Manta – closer to the coast. From there, a one and a half hour bus ride got us to Santa Ana in time … More A Day to Lose Your Heart
It was a long, but good, trip yesterday from Halifax to Toronto to Houston and, eventually, to Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Everyone travelled well and we received all our bags. Hallelujah! But the flight got in an hour late and we were delayed by an accident on the way to our hotel, so it … More A Day to Adapt
GoTeam Ecuador arrived safely this morning in Ecuador. They are all quite tired, but made the journey with no issues! Continue to pray for them this week!
The team is up in the air and on their way to Quito, Ecuador from Houston.
