Left in taxi

Left in taxi, Sunday March 4th, 2018. Left my black bag with lime green trim in a taxi. I got in the taxi at 10 AM Sunday on 12 Abril and got out just past the Vegetable Bar on Noviembre. In the bag was my umbrella, my knitting socks and knitting accessories. If you find it there is a small reward.

Signing a lease while waiting for residency visa?

Hi, I would like to hear from your experience, or knowledge of the law, and practices around signing a lease while waiting for the residency visa.

I will submit for a professional visa, which takes a while to be delivered, even if my university is already on the list. Any of you have been able to sign a lease while waiting? Thanks,

Baggage handling at GYE airport

How does early baggage check in GYE airport differ from checking bags at the ticket counter. When traveling from a US airport, I have only had experience at the counter. My airline indicates an extra charge for handling at the ticket counter. I will be exiting Ecuador with a large number of bags and I don't want to wait at the ticket counter if not needed. Does GYE have curbside baggage check in like the US with your tickets and boarding passes in hand?

"The Gathering" Bible Study Small Group

The Gathering, Bible study small group will resume early next week home in the city center.
Does "The Holy Trinity" or "The Trinity of God" stir up any questions in your mind? Nowhere is the word "Trinity" found in the Holy Bible. Not only is it not mentioned but the doctrine is neither found in the New Testament, nor in the Old Testament. We're going to try to get to the bottom of this concept. We'll dig deep into scripture to discover all that we can about God the Father, then mine out of the scriptures, all that is possible about God the Son. Our next step will be to familiarize ourselves with all that the Bible has to offer about God the Holy Spirit.

Will we be better able to understand the "Trinity"? We certainly hope so!
Why not join us in this search. Everyone is always welcome to join in, at any time. Bring your Bible, i-pad or smart phone and offer up your opinions and insights into the facts we uncover. Collectively, our views will enrich each other.

Psalms 14:2 NKJV The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.

2 Chronicles 26:5 NKJV He sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him prosper.

In Christ, Nancy, Jodi, Mike and Art.
