"The experience of being a volunteer in Ecuador through Rostro has caused me to humbly rethink what it means to be and see the face of God. I feel a call to adopt the same radical generosity and hospitality of our neighbors, as to enter more deeply into relationship with others. And although separated by distance now, I can’t help but glimpse my familia ecuatoriana in the occurrences of my everyday life."

    2015-16 Volunteer,
    Jackie Sardina

So I have arrived at the last couple days here in Ecuador, and I am filled with so many emotions: gratitude for what I´ve learned this year, nostalgia for the life I've lived here, excitement to return home, but mostly a real sadness to say goodbye to the people I love here. Words fail me to express what this year meant to me, how the experienced has changed me in a very profound way. The best way I have found to explain my experience this year is to say that I have fallen in love. Nothing is more practical than finding God, than falling in Love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in Love, stay in love, and it will decide everything. -Pedro Arrupe, S.J. I have fallen in love with the people of Monte Sinai. Their hopes and dreams seize my imagination. I get up in the morning so that I can spend time with them, visit them in their houses, learn from them, and love them. Their pain and tears break my heart daily. But their strength and undying faith amazes my with joy. Their overwhelming generosity fills me with gratitude. Read more: https://jackieinecuador.wordpress.com/2016/07/29/i-have-fallen-in-love/
