Short break in Ibarra

As we posted on Twitter, we went for a short 2-day recharge in the quiet town of Ibarra about 2 hours north of Quito last week. It’s a small, tranquil town and we basically rested, ate, read books, prayed and also played our newly bought Ecuador edition of Monopoly.. haha.. The beautiful scenery and quiet time to seek some spiritual, emotional and physical rest after the hectic month of May was well-needed and reminded us once again of how beautiful a country Ecuador is.

We also visited another even smaller town, San Antonio (10 mins from Ibarra), a place that’s famous for woodcraft, upon the suggestion of an Ibarrian we met in the hotel. πŸ™‚ It’s nice and there are quite some interesting stuff there! πŸ™‚

Thank God for the rest and tranquility! πŸ™‚



  1. Dear Shenteng and Peiru,
    its really encouraging to know how you guys persevered in reaching out to more souls in Ecuador and also resting and having much joy dwelling in His presence as you do His work… I recalled the days when you Shenteng was leading the NIE group, how you have impacted the lives of those whom you took care of. To this day, some of the values you shared to us, I find myself still applying them in my caregroup and people I am taking care of. May the brothers and sisters in Ecuador be impacted by the leadership of you and Peiru as well. Happy Birthday Shenteng, sure there will be more yummy dishes from Peiru to come =)

  2. Thanks Peiqi, you have always impacted me with your humility and submissive spirit in NIE ministry. Keep on giving your best and trust God in all you do! πŸ™‚

  3. dropping by…. nice to see you guys enjoying.. breaks are so important to life and our relationships… jia you both!
