After about 4 years and some considerable thought, I’m suspending any further blog entries for an undetermined period of time. The truth is that life is happening and I’m currently not able to maintain the standards I have set for myself and the blog. Rather than simply producing minimal and marginal, non-relevant content, I’d rather suspend the blog while my energies are being directed elsewhere.
Finally, our former hometown in Ecuador was only a few miles from the epicenter of the recent large earthquake. That small town, San Vicente, has been essentially destroyed along with the neighboring communities of Bahia de Caraquez and Canoa. It is heartbreaking to hear news of our friends now fighting for survival in apocalyptic circumstances. Real heroes are emerging every day as regular citizens perform valiant rescues and fight to provide for their families with no food, water or electricity and very little aid available.
For those who are able to help, here’s a link to a funding page for a small group of dynamic leaders who are doing the real work. I can personally vouch for these men and women. Please, if you can assist, any amount will be used to sustain lives and rebuild a modest existence. Here’s the link:
