The last phase

16 Jul

We’ve hiked.  We’ve trekked.

We’ve been in the jungle.  and gone white water rafting.

and seen large spiders.  and cooked our own meals.  and treated our water.  some of us have gotten a little sick.  we’ve taken long bus rides.

we’ve climbed mountains.

we’ve learned about each other and learned about ourselves.  everyone has taken the reins as leader or as cook. Everyone has gotten and given feedback on what they are doing well and how they can improve.

everyone has been stretched.

and now, we have just 10 days left in country.

Today we head to cayambe where we will go to a school outside of town and camp there, in the school, for about 5 or 6 days.  There we will work with the local community and help make the school a better place for teaching and learning.

even though it is summer vacation for the students here, our group is hoping that there will be students there.  everyone wants to practice their spanish and deliver the toys and good stuff they brought with them.  I foresee a futbol game in the near future!

I am looking forward to seeing the good work that this group of young people that I have seen grow over the past 3 weeks will do!
