more pictures

here are some more pictures from the fiesta in La Esperanza. Most of them are pretty self-explanatory. the second one is of the Reina or Queen of the fiesta or town. Kind of like the Watermelon Queen in my hometown of McDade. The rest of the pictures of different dance performances.

You´ve heard the saying that art imitates life´ well, these next two pictures show this in the dance as the men drink, get drunk, fall down and the women pick them up to take them home. As I mentioned in the last entry that this is far too often real and a very big problem in many areas of Ecuador.

The last two pictures are of me and Jose baptizing a couple of new believers, Leidi, in the first picture and Tannia in the second one. I will write more of their testimony later on but now I ask you to
pray for them and their families. I ask especially for you to shine the light to their husbands who are not believers yet.
