Millays and Family Conference

Jeff, Cindy, Kesed and Cora Millay (our pastor and his family from Ohio) were able to visit us over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Jeff was able to be our speaker for our annual family conference.  We typically have our family conference during the Thanksgiving break because it's not an Ecuadorian holiday, so we don't have to worry about interfering with family time or dealing with a mob of tourists at wherever we hold the conference.  That being said, it's not always easy to find a speaker that's willing to come from the US and forfeit their Thanksgiving with their family.  So, we were very grateful and excited that the Millays agreed to come down.  We were truly blessed to have them here and they were able to bless the rest of our "team" here with their teachings, both to the adults and the kids. 

The adult sessions

We only had a few kids, since the Ecuadorian schools don't get out for Thanksgiving.

Some other highlights:
Chad was able to fly them into Tiwaeno to see what a community in the jungle is like.

Kesed ended up taking a blow gun home with him so he can practice in his dorm!

We were also able to participate in the family conference "talent" night with Cindy.  I'm not sure if who had more fun, the audience or us!  I guess Cindy will need to come back this week for our MAF Christmas party - because we've been asked to make another appearance!  SCARY!

A BIG thanks to the Millays for coming and sharing with us.  We had a GREAT time!  Hope you did too.....so then maybe you'll even consider coming back!
