Friday, November 15, 2013 – Cotacachi, Ecuador
It’s been a long time since I posted anything and for that I sincerely apologize. It’s been a busy few weeks. I’ve settled into a routine here in Cotacachi. Bruce and I volunteer at a soup kitchen once a week and I work with school children one afternoon. I’ve been to visit the elderly at a local Catholic nursing home. All these things fill me with such blessings. It’s hard to explain.
But what has really filled my days is the nonsense. I guess that happens anywhere. Our little community that I once thought was so amiable has turned into Payton Place (for those of you too young to know what I am referring to it is an old soap opera). Here it is mostly community politics. I foolishly agreed to be on the Board. I am trying to fulfill my term, but it is not easy. However, I know God bought us here for a reason and I seek His guidance. I truly want to be a light for Him. The good things is, this all has me talking with my Lord a lot. I know God is with me. I can feel His gentle hand on my shoulder.
With all the mess my heart is just not into this blog anymore. I don’t want to write about the daily frustrations I am currently faced with. I just don’t think I am adding value to the original intent of this blog – to help people who are exploring Ecuador as a home. So therefore I bid a fond farewell to the few that have subscribed.
I will continue to work with the poor, the children, and the elderly. That is my true place. I love Ecuador and the Ecuadorian people.
May God bless you richly as you seek to fulfill His will.
