Tena Anniversary/Birthday trip

Here are some pictures from a recent trip that we took to Tena, down in the eastern part of Ecuador. We went there on Dec. 27 to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday (Dec. 29). It was a great trip and the Tena area is really one of our favorite parts of Ecuador. The first picture is of Christine and our guide and friend, Humberto on a boat ride on the Napo River. The Napo River is one of the Amazon River's main tributaries. We took a nice boat ride on the river and stopped by a zoo and a cultural museum on the way. The next picture was taken at the end of the trip, looking at the sunset and the river.
The last picture was taken on a hike that we went on to see different waterfalls. It was really quite nice but very muddy. It had rained a lot the day before. Besides the boat ride, we also drove around a bit and went swimming. All in all, it was a great trip.
As I close, I would like to share a really important prayer request. Recently, there were some volunteers that came and put on a Christmas program and meal in Tingo, one of the towns we work in. Well, there was a good response and we found many people that are interested in having a Bible study. Please pray for this group as we get started. Pray that people will come and learn about the promises and the presence of God and make these things a reality in their lives.
The last thing I want to share is a verse that contains a promise about the power of God's word. Romans 15:4- "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope."
