Holly's First Post
Let me start this post by saying, hello all! My name is Holly, and if you guys didn't know just recently Dylan and I were married. (January 6th to be exact.) With that being said, I am now officially a part of ICP and Dylan's team! I am very excited to start this new adventure and to pursue what God has called us to, not only as individuals but as a couple.
Dylan and I left the states on January 7th to travel to...where else but...ECUADOR! We love the country and the people so much that we decided to spend our first two weeks as husband and wife exploring a new part for the both of us, the coast. These past two weeks have been filled with sunburns, blue-footed boobies and sea turtles, a cricket plague, more food than imaginable, La Bamba, and a very eventful horseback riding experience (I'll let Dylan tell you about that one).
Currently, we are in Quito nursing our wounds and getting prepared for the next two weeks which consist of two teams coming to meet us. The first of the two weeks we will be in Shushufindi doing another module of the Didache Institute with the men and women. However, the thing I am most excited about this week is that we get some class time with the children at the school! Then that second week we will be in El Tambo doing the same thing. So this month we will have been to the beach, the jungle, and the mountains of this beautiful country!
The last thing I wanted to say to this support team is THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! We would not be able to be here without you. I cannot express in words how much we appreciate your prayer and financial support. We are currently 87% of the way funded for 2018, which is so very incredible. We are still praying that the Lord will continue to bring on more support members for this new year. Be on the lookout for missions updates within the next two weeks!
We love you guys so very much!
P.s. I included this incredible shot of the beach because, why not?
