A week in Zancudo

Two weeks ago our tidy city lives with paved roads, running water and ready internet were turned upside down as we helped lead a short term team from Cypress Church in California. We had been invited into a tiny town in northern Ecuador called Zancudo (mosquito-ville) to join local believers in their ministry for a week.

Here are some of the highlights of the trip in no particular order:

Have boots will travel. You can tell by this picture that Cecilia is a hoot! We worked in the kitchen together and shared some therapeutic laughter.

The houses were either of wood planks or cement.
