Today I’m continuing my series of posts relating to my recent trip to Ecuador. For previous posts, click here.
This sweet girl in her beautiful white dress was a bit sad about not getting to be in the dance routine with the other girls – she seemed to be the one that’s often left out, but she smiled a mile wide when I asked for a photo of her by herself. It’s all in the little things, you know?
When we got back to our hotel that night, Compassion brought in formerly sponsored children who now travel and sing to perform for us during dinner. They were fantastic, and just one more example of how sponsorship really works. After such an emotional trip, I’m so glad Compassion scheduled this “down day” to let us recover and process what we had been through. The time to just be a tourist was very much needed. Monday would mark our last full day in the country – and we’ll finish off the trip with a visit to the main country office and then the local market. I can’t wait to share those with you!
