Hello again

Hello again everyone. Yes, we are alive. We have not dropped off of the face of the earth. Here are a couple of quick pictures. We hope to put some more on here later, but it is taking a while to upload the pictures. We have just been continuing with classes and house hunting (we have a couple of prospects on that front-continue to pray that God's will is done in that situation.) We also got to go on our first trip out of the Quito area. We really had a wonderful time. It was so nice to get out of the city and get some fresh air. We went on a retreat with some students from our university to a place a couple of hours from here called Papallacta. It is an area up in the mountains (elevation approx. 12-13,000 ft) that has some hot springs as well. On the way back, we were able to visit some friends in Tumbaco that we had met in the US while they were visiting the States before we came here. The first picture here was taken in Papallacata. This next one was taken outside Tumbaco and it was a really powerful symbol in a way, as we saw the light descending on the Valley and the Quito area. It really became a prayer request, that we prayed and I hope you all would lift up this prayer request as well.

Isaiah 60:1-3-"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn."

Please pray these verses with us; that God's light will shine in the midst of the darkness.

You can see the light falling down the area, but one thing that was not shown in the picture (in the dark area of the picture) was a field of these small seedlings. How amazing!!! This picture doesn't do justice to what we were able to see, as nice as it is.

I guess this is all for now. I do hope to add some pictures later on, we have a lot more that we would like to add. Feel free to put any feedback in the comments section and especially feel free to email us any time at bchaley222@yahoo.com We love to hear from you all.
Take care and God bless. BEN
