Elder and Hermana Yost with Wilson, he is a city offical.

The donated items in one container from Salt Lake filled this room. There was a large variety of items from medical equipment to toys to shoes and sandles. It was awesome to see all the things the humanitarian center can send in one container.

We traveled today with Dr. Washington Zambrano, he is a member of our ward, to Tena. He is an oral surgeon and donates most of his time to the Charity Anywhere Foundation. There are several clinics in Ecuador that he is assiciated with, one in Tena one in Esmeraldas and one in Otavalo to name three. He has worked very hard to get two containers sent to Ecuador from the Humanitarian Center in Salt Lake. He has done all of the work, we did not have any input on this project except to represent the Church at the ceremony. There is a lot of work to get them here and then to get them cleared through customs duty free. There was one container full of medical supplies and misc. items and another container with an ambulance. The container with the ambulance did not arrive in time for this ceremony. I sure wish it had come I would have loved to see the ambulance. Most of these items were donated to the city of Tena, a very few were taken to be used by the clinic. Councilman Wilson asked if we could get candy for the children and an electric wheelchair for one of the workers. Not sure what we can do on that request.
