The last two weekends we’ve had the privilege of visiting two churches in Vilcabamba, a small town 45 minutes outside Loja. It is a tiny little town nestled in the Valley of Longevity with perfect weather. Tourists come from all over the world to experience great weather and a small town charm hard to find elsewhere. Many people come to recover their health and to enjoy a slower pace of life. I must say that Vilcabamba is one of my favorite places to visit. Our kids have had the opportunity to go horseback riding there a couple of times, and Jeff and I found a vegetarian restaurant we like there. My favorite place, though, is the Juice Factory located right on the plaza. Kind of a health food nut haven. Just my kind of place! After church we got some green smoothies at the Juice Factory to drink on the way home! Mmmm GOOD!
