Greetings from Ecuador,
As I’m writing this, I’m outside watching the biggest and prettiest hummingbird I’ve ever seen fly in front of me. The school year is coming to an end here at the Bible school. The students are taking finals this week and they graduate on June 14th. Next week I will be going with them to Cuenca as they will have a week of practicals before they graduate. After they graduate, I will be moving to Cuenca for the summer and house sitting the Pillman’s house as they are in the states until August. I was in charge for most of May as the administrator was in the states, and praise God nothing too major happened and I think it went well. I taught her literature class and a class on the book of Ruth during that time, which really helped my Spanish. I got a 6 month tourist visa, so I have until November to get my missionary visa. I have all the papers that I need except one-the church’s registration papers. The place that has the registration papers is currently without a manager, and so I am waiting for them to get a manager so that they can sign the paper. It sounds like such a simple thing, but I have been waiting for this paper for 2 months already, so please pray for this. Yesterday we had a fun adventure chasing our chickens-I have decided I never want chickens (unless I can watch the entertainment from a distance). I have been working on a play based on the book of Hosea and the book Redeeming Love. I just finished it and it will be performed by the students in August, I am told. This summer I will be working in Cuenca, and Rachel (the administrator) and I are organizing a Kids’ Camp for the month of July. I will be working on making the Bible lessons for the teachers this coming week. Thank you for all of your support and prayers.
