We praise the Lord that we are finally here in Ecuador! We could see God’s hand of blessing and protection at work in the trip down, even in little details like not getting charged for our second bags. Nathanael did well, considering the long day of travel he had.
Since arriving in Cuenca, we have been enjoying reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones. We have also been working on finding a car and a house or apartment to rent. In the meantime, we are living in a mission home owned by the bilingual school next to the church. It is a lovely place and we feel blessed to be able to stay here for the interim.
One of the new friends we have been able to meet is a young married couple who are new to the faith. We have been blessed by their hunger for God and hope to be able to continue to encourage their growth in the future. We have already been blessed by their relationship, as the man has graciously volunteered his time to drive us around Cuenca to look at cars and help us properly register our visas (a long process).
Keep us in prayer as we continue to adjust to our new surroundings. Patricia is striving to absorb as much Spanish as she can, while Nathanael continues to get used to the strange new surroundings. We thank God for each of you!
Love in Christ,
Justo, Tricia and Nathanael
