One key to being successful on the mission field is to explore to culture into which we will be speaking the Gosple of Jesus Christ.  Ecuador holds a unique history, biodiversity and societal makeup.  The Equater has played a key role in producing modern Ecuador.

The kids loved learning about the physical, nearly “magical” properties of the Equator.

For example a person is actually stronger while standing on the Equator.

The kids enjoyed learning about an ancient Ecuadorian delicacy called Cuey (Guinea Pig).

Music gives keen insight into culture.  Our kids enjoyed listening to traditional Ecuadorian music but they perfer to make there own.

We are currently still studying Spanish in Costa Rica but our family longs to be immersed into Ecuadorian culture!
