Update on Riobamba District Center

District Superintendent Mario Paredes is nicknamed "Super Mario" and is living up to his name.  Not only is he building and setting up 10 Compassionate International Centers this year but is also keeping up with improvements on the District Center in Riobamba.  The center is used for district meetings or conferences and also can be rented out to help generate money for the maintenance .  The following pictures will tour you around to see the updates. We appreciate the donor that made the latest updates possible.  We also want to thank the many Work and Witness Teams and Mission Corp that worked so hard on this. Bruce and Cinda McKellips former Work and Witness Coordinators had the dream and started this project.

There are two stainless steel kitchen sinks
The burner unit is an island on wheels with an added space
to wash big pots and pans

Dorm rooms- the colorful mattress covers were made by 
a volunteer lady from Oregon

The parking lot/soccer field/basketball court was poured 
by  Mission Corps- a family from Canada and a couple from
Washington and nationals. It really cuts down on the dust
