We made our way back to Ecuador on Feb. 7th and moved to the city of Salinas with some friends to look for a house. We were so excited to be back on the Mission field, then it hit me.
My heart would race and I began to feel bad. After 2 days of this I told my wife that I needed to take an emergency leave back to the States. We made the 2 hour drive to Guayaquil and caught a flight out of Guayaquil back to the States. My Wife’s parents picked us up at DFW Airport and drove us 6 hours to the Amarillo VA.
While in the Hospital for several days my wife and I got to pass out some Badges & Boots tracts. One person we got to talk with was a Reserve Sheriff Deputy who is going to school for nursing and works at the VA.
My wife got to speak with another patient that works in a nearby Prison facility and had been wounded by one of the prisoners.
Even though I was sick, we still tried to minister to Veterans, Police and other First Responders.
