La Roca Skate Event

Casa Gabriel had the privilege to help our friend and Youth World team member, Brock Luginbill with a skating competition. Brock and Nancy have started a skate board ministry here in Quito.

For this big event he had professional skaters, Jud Heald and Jared Lee from the United States to judge the competition, do a demo, and share the love and hope of Jesus Christ with over 300 hundred people. Casa G had the opportunity to talk and pray with people who made a decision to follow Christ.

Love Alejandro's big smile - he was so excited to meet Jud and Jared!
It was a fun day to be all together.
Coming home after a long day at La Roca...

Supercines VIP

This Christmas, I had lots of fun with the kids counting down the 12 Days of Christmas. "On the 5th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me 5 movie tickets for the family". The hard thing is that most of the kid movies are only in Spanish. We decided that we knew Toy Story well enough that we would understand, and it would be fun to go to a 3-D movie. The new movie theater here in Quito has VIP seating, so we decided to give it a try. So fun...

Lunch was pop-corn, Oreos, and Cokes. Yes, no Mother of the Year would be given to me, but it was a huge treat for Luke, Jordan and Molly!

This is what VIP seating looks like - leather recliner chairs with mechanical buttons. Supercines would be happy to know that the buttons work very well and were tested throughout the movie by my kids.

Molly and I decided to snuggle together in one chair.

Toy Story 3-D was a fun family outing!!!
