I was a short-term missionary with Serving in Mission (SIM) in Loja, southern Ecuador, for two years from 2011-13. This blog began as a way to share about my experiences on the field.

Living at over 2000 metres above sea level, deep in the Andes, was quite an experience. The first nine months I lived in Gonzanamá, a village of literally 5X5 blocks where everybody knows everybody else – and everybody knows everybody else’s business. We worked there and in the even smaller farming villages nearby. Then I moved to the provincial capital, Loja, a colonial city of about 220,000 people, including a large student population. I spent my fourteen months there working at a youth cafe.
