On Tuesday morning, the 25th, we got up early to have breakfast and at 9:30 we met Kevin, his mom, his little sister, and the project director in the Lobby of the hotel.
Bringing a gift to give right away can break the ice with your children
We took a cab to his neighborhood which is in a more dangerous area in the south of Guayaquil. Once we got there we took a tour of his project….
With Kevin and some of the project staff.
And then walked over to the church...
Next we went to a local park where we played football (soccer) and a little basketball. Even though I can speak some Spanish I have often found that the best way to get to know my kids is by playing together.
The opening in the fence was low enough that all of us had to duck to get through it
Of all the gifts I gave him, the biggest hits were the rocket balloons and the sunglasses.
