I am writing to let you know that, with much sadness, I finished working with the Life in Abundance (Ecuador) Trust in Ecuador on Friday.
Due to many changes being made to the way of working, by Luz Celly the Director, it was no longer possible for me to proceed with the Life Skills programme, in the way I intended. Neither was it possible to continue to train Petita, or indeed work with her. I found myself unable to carry out God’s will for me here.
I have been in close contact with CMS during the past month, as it became obvious that I was no going to be able to continue, and in agreement with them I am going to spend up to 3 months looking for another Foundation that wishes to work with my project. I know there is a great need to help adults with Learning Disabilities here in Ecuador, and am sure that God still wants me to do that.
My prayer request is that I will have safe travel around the country (yesterday was the final round of voting for a new President, and today there is much unrest), and that I will quickly find the place where God wants me to be. I intend to start looking here, in Santo Domingo, and Pastor William (who is on the Committee of LIAT here) has offered to go with me. That in itself is a confirmation that, he knows, it was not possible for me to continue.
Again, I thank all of you for your support, and look forward to writing soon with good news.
