Quito is everything. It is exceedingly polite and crass, eerily quiet and loud. It boasts an astonishing beauty tempered by a kind of raw ugliness. Quito has a magnificent and maleficent history. Some Quito residents possess breathtaking wealth (yet they can’t flush their toilet paper), 83% of residents report that all they possess are unsatisfied basic needs (which means they wish they had toilet paper not to flush). The people sleep peacefully at the feet of five active volcanoes.
Our first Saturaday in Ecuador Tim, Esperanza, Elias and Timothy climbed Mt. Pichincha. From the top we could see a breath taking view of Quito.
A quick confession: we had every intention to post about our Ecuador trip as the adventure unfolded, however we blinked and it was over. We have wonderful ministry experiences to share. We also have some amazing stories and some family adventures to share. All coming over the next few weeks.
In His grip,
