One year down... wow crazy to think that so much time has gone by.. I remember sitting in the plane about crapping my pants thinking what was I getting myself into.. Wondering where I was going and getting my self into. But just like all hard things, they get better and pay off! This past year has been amazing, the learning the people that I have met... every thing has been what it was supposed to be. Now when people ask, I can say with assurance, I have a year :)
Im at a weird point, the fact that I year is under the belt is sweet... but its a bitter sweetness because when that day comes that I have to go home.. that will also be a sad day.. The people of Ecuador are some of the humblest nicest people that exist, I to have had this time with them, well for me is an honor. We have been looking and looking this past week for more people, but as always, there is opposition in all things. The zone as a whole has been down quite a bit and the Enduring to the End principle is something that we are all learning. The Lord has his time in all things, and we can only be in agreement.
Something that I did that I would like to encourage all of you to do is a small look at where you were a year ago! First start with the things that you have done better with, look at them and feel good about it! After look at the stuff that you maybe you would like to change, then make goals to change or acheive those things. Its something that has really helped me and really works. Even just writing them down and having them in your mind, makes them completeable.
I want to thank you all for the support and forgive as time has ended! Love you all and hope you have a great week!
