My best friend for over 22 years came to visit Ecuador for the 3rd time these last 2 weeks. It was wonderful for us to have her here and this time was a little different than the last in that she was able to accompany me (Kim) to another highland city, Ambato to help with a Women’s Medical Caravan. This was very special to me as she has never been here during a medical caravan to see this part of our ministry. It meant a lot to serve alongside her and to have her here. She was able to meet and get to know some of the other missionaries serving here in Ecuador as well. It wasn’t all work though. We did do some fun things like manicures and pedicures, playing whiffle ball games, her learning dutch blitz, eating yummy food and catch up on American TV shows together which are much more fun to watch together!
Thank you Christa for sacrificing to serve our family and friends here in Ecuador!
Life is not always flowers and sunshine, but when you go through difficult times, it is better when friends are close and here to encourage. That is what Christa has always been to me and that hasn’t changed.
Our family is beyond thankful to her family for sharing her for 2 weeks. Thank you to her husband, Bart for holding down the fort back in the States with her boys to let her come down. Thank you also to Joel and my kids for allowing us to spend time together and serve together. We are so thankful!
