Today we stood on the Equator.
We oriented to the public San Franscisco hospital and private Christian Hospital VozAndes where students observed in ER and ICU and medical floors. We had an excellent presentation on hand hygiene! A translator was provided since our inservices were all in Spanish. Our nurses did not speak English but we all worked hard to find common understanding.
Visited the Plaza Grande- Carondet Palace-the seat of Ecuador government and home of the President… Who was visiting with our VP Pence today.😎
Exquisite chocolate tasting at the Republica del cacao.

Friends and Family,
Attached you will find maps that demonstrate where the nurses will be working over the next week. First, here is a picture of Ecuador, and its location in South America.
The pink hearts on the following images relate to four places where the nurses will work.
First, they will work at Hospital Voz Andes.
In addition, they will work at Hospital San Francisco, Camp Hope, and For His Children.
Good morning friends and family,
The Nurses in Mission Team safely arrived in Ecuador late last night. After clearing customs and immigration, we were greeted by our generous in-country hostess Diana Yepez. Although a native of Quito, Diana spent the last several months in Rogers, AR, doing an internship at Camp War Eagle.
Today, we will get acclimated to the city and then head down to colonial Quito. Attached I have included several pictures from the May Ecuador trip so you can see where we are going today.
Peace and Grace,
Andrew T. Bolger
