Limo-Zab Expedition Part 1

As Americans, November is the month we practice being thankful.  Thanksgiving is one of our favorite family holidays and we usually have a large gathering at our house, with everyone contributing to a feast and time of fellowship.  But this is not all that we did this month.  Ron and Sarah went with some family and friends to the villages of Limoncocha and Zabalo this month, so we thought we would share some photos of their special trip.

Limoncocha is where Ron grew up on the Wycliffe missionary base.  There is a Quichua village at this location and they are doing a good job preserving the wildlife at the lake.  “Aunt” Carolyn Orr was one of the translators for the Lowland Quichua dialect and she was taking a book of parables to the people along with some wonderful photo memories of Pastor Gervasio.  It was a very memorable occasion.

Photo creds go to Ron and Sarah…

First, photos of the introduction of the book and sharing memories with longtime friends:

Next, the group was able to enjoy a day-time and night-time boat tour of the lake.  The night-time tour includes Ron (and a guest if they wish) catching by hand a couple young caiman for photos.
