This past week we were in Ibarra, north of Quito. This is the area where our home church Northwest Covenant in Mt. Prospect, IL went last summer with the youth mission team. We were able to accompany them during this 2 week trip. We were able to work on a new church/Compassion International Center at Iglesia Divino Pastor. It was so great to re-visit this area and see the changes! It’s so exciting!
So, this is a picture update of the changes over the last few months since we were all there.

Mural as you come up the stairs to the 2nd floor. I believe it was painted by the youth of the church
