Our team just returned to Quito from Misahualli, Ecuador. This small town is located at the junction of two rivers in the jungles of Ecuador.
During our three day stay we worked with a program called Its About Jungle Kids. This ministry has grown from being a family living in the jungle to a school of over 60 students on a former chocolate plantation along with various other fruit trees.
Ecuador is a land of coffee and fruit. The mountainous terrain and location on the equator make it unique. But more than its geography and climate Ecuador’s people make it special. The jungle village of Misahualli has a small but diverse population. Several different indigenous groups, Latinos, and groups of tourists from all over the world seeking thrills in the Amazon jungle all make their way through this town.
Over the next week we will be posting more pictures and videos from our time here. Check back to find out more about the jungle kids, thieving monkeys, and bridge jumping.
