Five Years Later… Photos from Ecuador

44

It’s been more than five years since my first overseas mission trip to Quito, Ecuador, but I’ve been working on a missions article for work and the nostalgia has hit hard. 

Which, of course, explains this morning’s sprint down memory lane. Each of the following photos triggers certain emotions and experiences and reminds me of friends made during the 2011 spring break trip with Murray State’s Baptist Campus Ministry. Our time was filled with working in special needs orphanages, doing a bit of construction with a church, eating guinea pig, and taking in the sights of the stunning country.

So, here are some photos of our week in South America.

In case you were wondering, I do look the same in every culture.

Too bad this is grainy and my camera lens is disgusting.
