Ellen nearly missed her connection in Dallas and it looked like she would be spending the night there, but we prayed for a miracle and got one. After leaving Ecuador at 8 am Friday, she finally arrived home Saturday morning at 12:05. The first words out of her mouth after, "Hello," were, "I want to go back!"
Yesterday she went grocery shopping with her mom. In Ecuador it is common practice to say "Hola," to everyone as you pass them. Forgetting where she was she said "hola" to a man as she passed him in the grocery aisle. He looked at her rather strangely. The rest of us laughed.
Stay tuned for one last blog post from Ellen and hopefully more pictures of her mission.
