Pictures and Prayer Requests

The following are pictures that we took a while back on the way down to Banos. Above the clouds, is the city of Quito. Above Quito, is Pichincha which has snow on it. We were really surprised to see it because Pichincha rarely has snow on it.
The next two pictures are from a small town that is known for its' ice cream. Isn't this a scary looking trash can? (Jan, this one is for you!)

This sign has a list of the different flavors of ice cream...some of them are quite normal, like strawberry or chocolate, but how would you like to try aguacate or avocado flavored ice cream? I opted for the strawberry instead. It was really great. Maybe I'll be adventerous next time and try the avocado.
Here's just a cool looking picture of the Ecuadorian flag. I had to take quite a few pictures to get this one just right.

*Now, I would like to share a special prayer request...it concerns our special friends Ramiro and Eleanor. We have shared about them before and we ask that you would pray for them again. As of now, Ramiro's condition has worsened and it looks like he doesn't have much time left. Pray that he would have peace in this time and wouldn't be in too much pain. Pray that Eleanor would have strength as she continues to care for her husband. The one miracle occurred of his stomach reconnecting to his intestines but some tumors came back on his liver and he is also getting over a case of pneumonia. Again, just pray for more miracles-physical and spiritual.

Taxo is a kind of fruit that we can't compare to anything else we've ever seen! Apparently, it isn't too good without lots of sugar.
