The past week in pictures…maybe a few words too!

Posted by on November 6, 2014

This past week, Esther and I (Kim) went up to Cayambe to observe and help as we could with a Medical/Dental team from Florida.  This team has been coming to Cayambe for many years so we were excited to see how they did things and take some notes.  The members of the team were very kind and for some it was their first visit to Ecuador!  Around 590 patients were seen during the 5 day trip.  For me, it was SO exciting to see the clinic open and helping those in the community of Juan Montalvo which is the vision and mission of the clinic.  It was a privilege to be able to serve next to great doctors and nurses and to see the heart to help those in need.  Additionally for me it was wonderful to create deeper relationships with those at the Compassion center at Iglesia Imanuel as well as parents and other family members of the kids.  It was truly a blessing and I am grateful for the opportunity we had to go.  Here are some pictures from the week!

I had the awesome opportunity to visit a rose plantation with the team.  usually this is prohibited, but we were able to go because Pastor Jose has friends in high places!

    Hi Kim,

    So good to hear what’s going on in Cayambe and the rest of Ecuador. Planted seed just keeps reproducing! Hard to believe it’s 65+ years since we arrived in Quito. God’s blessings on you, your family and your ministry. You are in my prayers.
    Greetings to anyone who still remembers us.

    Marlan
