Come with us as we return to South America this summer to volunteer at La Casa De Fe, a home for abandoned and special needs children in Shell, Ecuador.

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” ~Mathew 19:14

The New Property (Luke)

Each morning while we were in Shell I woke up at 7am so I could get ready for the day and take the 20 minute walk to the new property.

At 8 we started work on all the things that needed to be done.

Usually that meant plastering or painting most of the day; but I also got to haul and sift dirt,

and even more dirt,

move huge piles of bricks by throwing them from person-to-person,

and help mix cement for projects that the "Maestros" (expert carpenters) were working on

From noon to 1:30 we were off for lunch. Some people went to town and get back just in time to start work. I brought a lunch, and finished in time to take a nap and still start early. Our days ended at 5pm when we packed up and rode home in the back of La Casa De De’s truck.

Here's a movie the first floor of the building (as of the begining of July)

This is a view from the kitchen on the second floor.
