This was my 4th trip to Ecuador and I can certainly see the advantage of developing a relationship with the people. This is Sarah and her dad, Pastor Lucas (Ecuador's equivalent of the apostle Paul). Before we left on Friday, she came by and brought me an authentic Quichua hat . I was so overwhelmed by such a gracious gift. Sarah worked with us our first trip over and we developed a 'sisters in Christ' bond right away. After she had a baby (2nd trip), thanks to my sister and yard sales, we have taken gifts of clothes for sweet baby Israel since then. I do not know how much the hat cost her, but to me it is priceless. A hat and a friendship, go figure!
