In October, 1997, my husband Mark and I, decided to move to Ecuador. We settled in Cuenca, the third largest city. It is nestled in a valley surrounded by the Andes Mountain range. It has been an amazing aventure.

What Makes a Successful "Need Greater?"

That is a good question. Of course, you have to have the right circumstances or count the cost before you build your tower. Planning is essential, but that is not all. There are some things you just can't plan ahead for...Many have the desire to serve where there is greater need, but what obstacles do you need to overcome? Here are some insights from ones who decided to take the big leap and come to Ecuador where there is still a great need. If after seeing some of the interviews, you have questions or concerns, let us know and we will do our best to answer your inquiries. The invitation is set before you "Step Over to Ecuador" where there is a great opportunity to serve! By the way, you don't have to have the perfect circumstances to serve where the need is great. You do need the desire and the faith. And as our many friends will attest....you need to be a little bit crazy.


  1. Hey we know those people!!!

    Mark says that you don't have to be a little bit crazy - you have to be completely nuts!!!

    Becky you are really getting into this blog thing aren't you? Well done!

  2. Hell0! I found your blog. I love what you said that you don't have to have the perfect circumstances but you have to have the desire. My husband and I plan to go to Panama to serve.

  3. I hope your plans work out and you will enjoy serving in Panama.

  4. Hey there! I used to serve in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua and LOVED IT! Now my husband and I are looking at Ecuador as a possibility and I've been considering Esmeraldas. Do you know of any smaller communities on the cost that may need help??

  5. sorry, to reply, you can email me @ about.time4u@gmail.com

  6. What a pleasant journey this was. I chanced upon your blog and because I am from Hawaii and currently in the Marshall islands I wanted to share in your experience. But, what happened? There are no entries after January! Well, at any rate, thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
