We are in Puyo today, and have a busy day ahead, with many errands to do. This morning, I hand-washed some laundry before we left the house. (Yes, it’s mostly my routine to wash every morning because hand-washing is a little more difficult than just dropping laundry in a washer :-), so I don’t like to wait for the clothes to pile up. A few pieces at a time is how I do it! 🙂
We start out walking, and go to Sandra’s house first (she lives 15 minutes away) to invite her to our fellowship meeting on Sunday. Then Fanny, and her aunt. Then we stop by to check on Sis. Olga, who’s father passed away recently. She was happy to see us.
We also go invite Manuela, Doris and her friends, Pablo, and Cesar to our Sunday service. Then we go to buy ink for our office printer, to print out flyers and pictures. Then we walk over to speak with the electric company about getting electricity someday in our Talin church. We don’t even know if it’s possible, but we hope to have musical instruments in that church someday, too. They need a lot of information from us, so we’ll have to go back another day with all the correct
We then walk to the grocery store, Tia, to buy snacks for refreshments after our Sunday service. Take them back to the Puyo church. By this time, we’ve walked all over town for about 3 hours now, and we’re about 35 minutes away, so we ‘dash’ back home (on foot:-) just in time to go eat lunch with our friend, Rut. Yesterday was Charles’ birthday and since we were in Puyupungo all day (which is 1 hour away), she cooked for him today. We arrived to find her, her children, her sister Mirian and her aunt, wishing Charles a lovely day and thanking God for 35 wonderful years for him. Rut cooked us rice, chicken, potatoes and she made Charles a cake, too. 🙂 Yummy!!!
After nearly 2 hours with our friends, we came back home. I prepared my Bible lessons for church tonight in Puyo, tomorrow in Talin, and Sunday in Puyo again. Charles printed photos for us to hang up tomorrow in the Talin church, of Doris’ baptizing and the inauguration of the church. They will be so excited to see themselves in pictures! He then balanced EM finances in Quickbooks. We took showers and headed out to Puyo church for 6:30, for a good time in God!
And, no my laundry did not dry today, as it rained while we were out, so they’ll need to hang out tomorrow, too. And with the sound of rain pounding on my roof as I write this, I’m not so confident in them drying tomorrow either! 🙂
But, it was a beautiful day we had today. We know that each day with the Ecuadorians, though, is always new and exciting.
I sure do love my life!
