Diocesan Trip to Ecuador

This year, we will work with our brothers and sisters in Puyo, a jungle town of 25,000 on the eastern Andean slope at the edge of the Amazon basin.  There is work to be done on the farm and restoring the roof of the Episcopal parish.  As is our custom, we will toil side by side with our hosts, our fellow Anglicans whose lives are intertwined with ours, seeking to do what our Lord asks - serve each other.  We will meet, work and worship with various indigenous groups, including an Amazon Shuar Indian community.  Join us as your diocese continues its journey in faith with our Ecuadorian companions.  Estimated cost is $1390.90.  Act quickly as space is limited to 20.  For more details on the trip, contact Pete Ackerman 908-310-5202 or click here.
