Headed to Ecuador!

Well, I am SO excited to share that we are finally heading to Ecuador this Friday! As I've mentioned before, Patrick's brother and wife are serving as medical missionaries there. They moved down there at the end of last summer, and we have always said we wanted to go visit soon. We are going a little bit earlier than we had originally thought we would, but when we had our surprise pregnancy, we bumped up our plans accordingly.

We'll be there for about 2 weeks and can't wait to spend time with them and our niece and nephew! I'm planning on spending some time at the orphanage there as well as visiting my nephew's school...I just know it's going to be such a great time. I do wish I could speak Spanish a little better than I can. I mean, if anyone needs me to count to ten or know what color something is, I'll be the go to person. Apart from that, let's go ahead and call my 15 hours of college Spanish a waste. Patrick speaks Spanish so he's tried to give me some pop quizzes lately...however, they mostly result in me staring blankly at him. So wish me luck!

We sponsor a little girl through Compassion that lives only about 15 minutes from where they are, so we were hoping to get to meet her while there. Unfortunately that isn't going to work out this trip due to Compassion not having the ability to schedule a sponsor visit at this time, but there's always next time!

I will try to blog some while I'm there, but no promises. (Not that you guys have any expectations of me anyway since I'm pretty hit and miss on my blogging consistency...) Please pray that this will be a blessed trip and that I will continue to feel great. :) Thanks!
