Our morning devotions and worship time has been amazing. We have our personal and corporate prayer on the roof of the hotel that we are staying. What makes this so special is that surrounding Otavalo (which is north of Quito) are huge mountains. These mountains are beautiful and the clouds that cover the sky paint a gorgeous image that many of us have only seen in magazines. I can’t leave out the fact that the tempature in the mornings here is in the 50’s and during the day they hit the high 70’s. We are right on the equator. In fact yesterday I was able to stand on o’ latitude.
Everyone connects to God differently, for me one of the ways I connect with God really well is when I am close to the out doors. So spending time in prayer upstairs on the roof is very meaningful. I would encourage you to find what way you connect with God the best and schedule time on a monthly basis try to position yourself to hang out with God outside of your regular time. My other pathway that I connect really well with God is through reading books and intellectually process information. Though this pathway can be a curse as well as a blessing it has been a great avenue for me to grow in my relationship with Christ through the years. I gotta head to bed I have an early moring tomorrow. Peace from Ecuador!
