Please keep Amor y Esperanza in your prayers as they are facing a difficult time ahead. The changes in the government of Ecuador have created many hardships for the ministry -- from increased construction costs for the new school building to lack of funding for the day care to increased supply costs across the board. In addition, there are many children at the school who continue to be in need of sponsorship. It is hard to express in a few words what we witnessed over the course of the week, but what I can say is that Amor y Esperanza is transforming lives, and transforming the community of Carmen Bajo, through their work. Please visit Amor y Esperanza online and consider helping in any way that you can -- through prayer, financial support, or spreading the word!

security lines were short giving the boys some
time to catch a soccer match on TV as we waited at the gate.
