4 Years in Ecuador

Where has the time gone?  We are now celebrating 4 years in Ecuador (Cuenca to be exact).  In those 4 years, we have:
  • Moved 4 times, and love where we are living now.  We've been in this condo for 2 years, and just renewed our lease for 2 more years.
  • Helped out with various ministries and orphanages, and even helped to start an English-speaking Christian church.
  • Traveled to the Galapagos Islands; toured the southern coast of Ecuador; visited Quito, Guayaquil, Banos de Ambato, Cotacachi; rode the Devil's Nose Train; went whale-watching and toured Isla de la Plata.
  • Bought a car and acquired driver's licenses
  • Improved our Spanish.  DuoLingo says that I am 63% fluent (and Mike is more fluent than me!)
  • Traveled to the States 4 times and enjoyed seeing friends and family in California, Arizona, and Idaho.
  • Applied for citizenship
  • Improved our health by having less stress in our life; eating healthier; exercising more; and laughing a lot.
