Last Tuesday Micha surprised me during my office hours at the church in Cotacachi. He participated in the German Impact team during our first year back in Ecuador, September 2011-August 2012. Currently he is completing a practicum in education at the German High School in the Ecuadorian city of Guayaquil and came to visit us in Imbabura province. What a delight to see him again! We invited him over for lunch one day.
Then our good friends Barb and Ray came for a tour of Ecuador. While they were in the nearby town of San Pablo we went to see them; what a great time with lots of smiles, laughs, chocolate cake and ice cream. They met Elías and Jacob for the first time. Ray and Barb volunteered in the library at Pacific Islands College in Guam while we were there. They are planning a return trip to Guam in December. But we are glad that they came to Ecuador first.
