"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this; to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

Great Ecuadorian Day

We made it safely to Quito, Ecuador last night, and then we drove about 3 hours to La Borja. Today has been a great first day for us! We had a short orientation in the morning with prayer for the week ahead and some singing. We were able to check out the local market and the ladies made lunch for us. It was delicious!

Cami with her yummy lunch!
 We were able to go down to the river and Borja as well. It was beautiful.

The team at the river!
 We drove around some of the back roads and also saw a dump truck corralling cows which was an unexpected experience.

Isn't that Cool :D
 Later in the day Grace, Kaylah, Cameryn, Elijah, and I (Hilary) got to practice our Spanish with some of the neighborhood children as we colored, and played with these children who were so starved for attention. They loved having people who would play with them and give them a little love.
Loving on the kids!
Aren't they sweet?

Playing with the kids!

 Today we were also to make a lot of headway on getting our crafts and the plans for the week set. VBS is going to be a great week, and we are excited to get started! Loving Ecuador!
