I am getting closer and closer to returning to the jungle. I couldn’t be more excited! A couple weeks ago I turned in all of my paperwork online to the Ecuadorian Consulate. Last week I got a call later in the evening that they were ready to set an appointment for me to come and pick it up! I will travel to Houston, TX for my appointment on March 2nd. If everything goes well at the appointment, this process will have been pretty painless! Please pray that everything goes well and that I leave with my visa.

I plan to leave for Ecuador a few weeks after getting my visa. Can you believe it! I am finally getting to go back after being in the States for over a year. I am overjoyed that I am getting to return! I am in the process of getting things together and wrapped up, buying clothes and things that I need to take back with me. Finishing up the last of my doctors appointments, getting a new drivers license, and packing up stuff that I am not going to take. I have a list somewhere of things I need to do. I kept on listing off all of the things I need to get done before I go and my friend said write it down Ashley! Now I can’t find my list! Don’t tell her!

My friends, in the jungle, are in the process of getting my cabin ready for me. A couple years ago I joked that if they put an air conditioner and windows in my house I would stay a couple more years. Last month I found out that they had planned on doing that! I got a message last night that the window guy is coming this week! Little did they know that I would have gone back with or without windows! I feel a little spoiled but I am very grateful. I love how the Lord chooses to bless me with things like that. The Lord has been so faithful to me throughout this last year. I really can’t explain it any other way!

Here are a few things you can pray for me:

  • Safe travels to and from Houston.
  • That my visa appointment goes well and I leave with my visa.
  • That the Lord continues to send guidance and provision as I get ready to go.

Thank you for your love, prayers, and support!
