The camping/climbing trip on Sincholagua went well. The weather was dry for only a few hours in the morning then broke into rain, hail or snow depending on how high up the mountain the climbing teams were. Four out of six teams reached the summit. It was a long hard test of physical endurance and psychological strength. The Lord watched over every group and kept everyone safe as they ascended through ominous and sinister looking rock formations. It was said that base camp resembled The Shire and the mountain - Mordor (from Lord of the Rings).
The students are full of energy and eager to get home and have a bit of a break before finishing out the final weeks of the LIFT semester.
Thank you for your prayers and support. Be sure to get the full story of all that happened here in Ecuador the next chance you get to talk with one of the LIFTers from this team.
