Today at our partner church, Iglesia Emanuel, we held our long-awaited Inauguration/Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for the Medical Clinic.  It was quite the event.  People came from all over to be involved.  Representatives from IPEE’s Administrative Council and Pastoral Council were there and participated in the events.  Many people gave speeches with many words of high praise for those who have been a part of this process to bring the clinic to this point.  The event even included some distinct Kichwa traditions for these types of Inauguration ceremonies.  The time was concluded with a delicious lunch of roasted pork.  It was an incredibly emotional and uplifting day to get to this point in which we are celebrating the opening of the Medical Clinic that we have been planning and working toward for so many years.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!!
