Day 9 – Final Day at a Christo Liberador and Returning Home
Our first full day in Quito, Ecuador was filled with famous landmarks and informative orientations. In the morning, we learned more about Ecuador through our two team hosts, Pablo and Grace, and afterwards, learned much more about Youth World and their nine ministries. It is incredible to get a glimpse of what God has been doing through Youth World since 1994!
We then had the privilege of visiting the Basilica, and after lunch, the Panecillo. Both sites gave a beautiful view of the entire city of Quito. After dinner, we had an important orientation from one of the Youth World staff, preparing us to minister effectively and process healthily all that we will experience this week. We look forward to our time with the Buen Pastor church tomorrow.
Thank you for your continued prayers for us – by God’s grace, we have adjusted well to the high altitude here, as well as to the food and the living environment. Please pray that we would come to understand and embrace the culture as we begin our partnership with Buen Pastor, and be effective witnesses of the gospel in this culture.
