FBCBG Ecuador Mission Team Update (Team #1)

June 10, 2016 - Ecuador update... Today we had our rest day. We took the bus to Otavola to the market and went to the waterfall to enjoy the beauty of Gods creation! It is amazing! This evening we went to the school however plans were changed. Two of our team members were going to teach a class but the principal canceled classes to have all the students clean up for a special day on Monday. However the principal allow us to share with the students anyway and they were sitting on bleachers. They had questions written down to ask us. After we were asked why we were here and we explained, then one students question was......I hear God is returning soon, is that true. Wow, even tho our time was cut short is was a great time sharing with the students. Tomorrow we hit the ground running as our first meeting is in a home at 9:00 am. We have scheduled one event in the apartment which is tomorrow night with the movie war room, so please pray for this time of fellowship. It is so hard to believe that we only have two days remaining before we have to say our goodbyes. But we are all totally in awe of the great times we have experienced and can't wait to see what the last two days has for us! Blessed be the name of the Lord our God!!!!!!! - Jane Long 

June 11, 2016 - This morning we went to La Esperanza to meet with Edgar, who is a military pilot. Great time sharing with him. This afternoon we attended an event to support the earthquake victims. We took supplies for them to send. tonight was very exciting, we showed the movie and 45 people showed up!!!!!!! But even better than that about half of them were new friends. Tomorrow we will worship in two different churches, one in the morning and the other in the evening. Then the hard part comes as we say goodbye for now and get ready for the flight home on Monday. - Jane Long

June 12, 2016 - Last update for this trip..... This morning we worshiped in a church some of the teams has visited before. Great worship service!!!!!!!!!!Met some friends at lunch came back to the apartment with them and had a devotion. Attended a soccer game for about and hour which the coach is one of our dear friends. Some of the team took power naps before we head out to church tonight to worship our Lord! This week has been so amazing. We are on mountain top praising the name of Jesus. Goodbyes are always a part of this journey we don't like but goodbye my dear friends for now! Pray for us as we travel back home tomorrow. God bless you all! - Jane Long
