packing up and saying goodbye

Sorry we haven't posted recently. You can imagine we are quite busy these days. Mostly, we are packing up and saying goodbye. These first couple of pictures show a couple of goodbyes. The first one is out at Ramon's church in Ascazubi last Sunday. They had a really special service and a going away shinding for us. It was quite nice. Here's a picture of Christine with the group. Christine is wearing traditional dress from Cayambe.
This 2nd pic is of us saying goodbye to Dave and Ana, who run La Fuente. They've been great friends and it's been really nice to work with them.
Here's the packing up part. Evan's helped a lot, as you can see here.
Too much packing can really wear you out, as this pic shows.
Here's Evan with our neighbor and really good friend, Carmen. She helped us watch Evan quite a bit when we were packing. His hat says, Ecuador- my country.
Well, I guess this is all for now. We have most of the packing done but there are still some loose ends to tie up. We still have a few goodbyes but we'll be headed out this Monday/Sept 15. Please pray for us as we finish up, say goodbye and pray for safe travel. I guess this is all for now but I have many more pics to put on later...maybe after we get home. We'd also like to send a newsletter before we leave, so keep your eyes open for that.

Evan is such a doll. I love the pictures. Can't wait to see all of you and get to hold Evan.

Love you,
