Share the Wealth: Love and Other Lessons Learned from Ecuador

by Mark Chmiel

From July 2013 to August 2014, Chelsea Jaeger was a volunteer in the Rostro de Cristo program, living in intentional community with six other volunteers near Guayaquil, Ecuador. As a group and as individuals, they tried to live out the values of simplicity, hospitality, spirituality, community, and service while accompanying the people of Mount Sinai in a ministry of presence. Come and listen to the snapshots she shares from her year, through the selected writings of her personal journal. Together we will encounter moments of sadness and joy, anger and acceptance, loss and love.

Chelsea graduated from Saint Louis University in May 2013 with her undergraduate degree in public health. She now lives in St. Louis, working at two non-profit organizations while transitioning from her year as an international volunteer.

For those who are unable to join us in person, you can take a peek at her experience through Chelsea’s blog.
