We were so happy to have my (Kim) parents come for a visit right after the protests had ended. They almost had to cancel their trip because of the protest but we were so thankfuly that they were still able to come. It was a joy to have them with us for a full week. This was the first time that they together had been to Ecuador to visit us since 2011. This was also the first time that my dad was able to visit our project in Cayambe. We were able to spend time together as a family which is so important for us as our kids usually live so far a way from their grandparents. Grandma and Grandpa got to experience the daily ins and outs of our lives here including reading stories and listening to stories being read for homework, going to Chicberry, Taco Tuesday, going to soccer and swimming practices, seeing Simeon’s baseball game and more. It was fun to see my mom reading the Bible to Esther as that is something I remember her doing from my childhood. It was a life giving and blessed time for all of us!
