I’m back from Ecuador. It was an amazing trip. I got to tell many people about our Lord. 15 prayed to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. That alone was enough but I also got to feed a lot of hungry people. I carried $300 to buy food and when I got back to Nashville I had $5 to my name. One of the translators was a lady who knew what to buy that would be the most beneficial for poor hungry people. We filled 3 feed sacks full and carried it to 3 families. The tears of joy came running down their faces every time they saw the food.
We went to one village that we shared Christ with, worked with 42 children and then fed them all. I bought the food and some church ladies made the meal. Don’t ask me what it was. Reminded me of a dish in Louisiana called gumbo. We had plenty and it fed the 80 or 90 people there. We piled the plates high and even the children cleaned their plates. I could only eat half of mine and I went over to a little girl to see if she wanted what I had left. She opened a black plastic bag and had me put it inside, the whole time smiling from ear to ear. Then I heard the mayor of the village and his wife was there. I found them and asked if I could talk to him for a few minutes. He was glad to talk to me and I led both of them to Christ. The whole time the little girl had her hand on my shoulder. I knew she was touching me but I was focused on sharing the scriptures. Several of our group saw what she was doing and took pictures and sent them to me. I love this picture.
I can’t wait to go back again.
