Good morning,

We have landed safely in Ecuador. It could not have been smoother. The American Airlines gate opened 45 minutes early in MSP and we were done checking in before it was scheduled to open. Our flights were uneventful. My biggest concern was making it through customs in Quito. We had distributed the 230# of medications for the hospital into all the bags. We went thru the scanner without a hitch. The only bags they questioned were the bags containing a portable washer and water extractor for missionaries working in Salasaca.

On the way down we were blessed with extraordinary views of the volcano, Tungurahua. We normally do not see it this clearly and when we do there usually is no snow on the top.

Thank you all for your support and prayers.

Bob and Vicky
