Compassion Bloggers in Ecuador

I’m a big fan of Compassion International, we sponsor three teenage boys (actually two now, one just graduated) and I’ve traveled to Africa twice with Compassion. I always look forward to following the Compassion bloggers on their trips and today I wanted to share some links with you so you could follow along too…
