Here’s all I’ve been able to write about Ecuador so far…

I know.

I need to tell you about how I got trapped in a bathroom at a gas station on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere Ecuador.

I need to tell you about the Compassion guys I sponsored- I call them my Ecuadudes.

I need to tell you that I was the first and only team member to puke and how my mom told me she was proud because our family is always competitive and loves to win.

I want to write about Ecuador, but I’m still processing and thinking and figuring out how to tell you alllll the things I want to tell you without making you sit and listen to me talk for an hour or twelve.

But so far?

This is all I can write about. The two kids who sang. And the leaders who make them feel safe enough to be brave.

Compassion Ecuador - Jan. 2015-112

I’d love for you to pop over to (in)courage and read about it.

If you’d like to sponsor a Compassion kiddo from Ecuador, you can find one here!

    Hi Anne, I followed you from incourage. I am very glad you shared your experience. It was an exciting experience I suppose.
    God Bless as you continue to do God’s will.

    I spent 2014 traveling to 11 different third world Latin American countries, spending a month in each of them (including May in Ecuador). One thing that always seemed to happen to me was that I got locked in bathrooms. I’m so glad I’m not alone! I also got to meet my child (October, El Salvador) and like you, didn’t (and really still don’t) have the words to express that experience.

    I would love to hear you talking for an hour about Ecuador. That Sounds Fun???!
