October 2019 Newsletter

(NEWSFLASH: From October 3 through October 13 Ecuador experienced widespread strikes and civil unrest after the government discontinued long-standing fuel subsidies. We did not know until today (October 14) if we would be returning October 16 or rescheduling our flight. But late last night the government reached agreement with the protesters. Quito is returning to normal and we get to return. Please pray for Ecuador’s recovery from this difficult time.)

Our four-month Home Ministry Assignment (HMA) has flown by and our October 16 return to Ecuador is quickly approaching. Here’s a partial list of our happenings:

    • Time with family
    • Connecting with fifty supporters (so far)
    • Speaking to four small groups about our life in Ecuador
    • Enjoying Oregon’s gentle summer sunshine, abundant fresh fruits and vegetables, and Eugene’s wonderful riverside bike paths
    • Visiting the Oregon coast and riding around Crater Lake (Scott made the circuit by unicycle for the fifth time)

Our hoped-for week of debriefing in Colorado didn’t happen but we’re planning to register for a July 2020 session. We hope to spend two weeks in Colorado and two weeks in Oregon.

Thank you for praying for us during this time and as we head back to Quito. We’re enjoying our last days here AND will enjoy being back in Ecuador for our normal lives.
