christabaca I woke up from this mornings camping trip with the distinct feeling that someone was watching me. I was right... Nose pressed against the window pane stood a lama, just checking out the Baca family. It was one of those surreal moments that I'm find of that thankfully happen oh so often in life!!! #bacasinecuador 4d

christabaca Thinking tonight for some reason about the beautiful people of #panama and the #kunayala tribe. It was almost five years ago this summer that we brought fresh water to this tribe. Coupled with both education about the necessity of clean water and fulfillment of a fresh water well- we were able to help bring life to a community riddled with disease. My heart is feeling alive today because we had a meeting with the redcross here in Quito about how to couple our children's program for forced child laborers with education on hygiene and disease. Its been a dream in my heart to bring both education and humanitarian philanthropy everywhere we go. The two are powerful and life changing. 1w

christabaca Had to give a shoutout to this amazing girl. She's one of my best friends and someone who gives back to the world with every single breath she takes. She's been there for me in the good times and the bad times and showed me what a true friend is like. Love you forever @taberdean 1w

christabaca Spent tonight holding an art campaign in Quito's Plaza Foch asking people to share what their most central belief is. It's always so neat to see what peoples response is to a question like that. Many left inspired as they were able to share their thoughts with us and create with us a beautiful and inspiring piece of art. #go_submerge 1w

christabaca I've been playing around in the kitchen with some new recipes and here's one I created for an #essentialoil salad dressing: 10 drops DoTerra lemon oil
1/4 cup oil 
1/4 cup white or apple cider vinegar
1 tsp dry oregano
1/4 tsp dry basil 
Pinch of garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
Blend in blender for about 20-30
seconds to emulsify.

christabaca "What if?" It's a question I ask myself all the time. What if I moved to Ecuador... What if we did something to help end child slavery... It's these questions that make life come alive; filled with possibility. When you start to imagine,"what if" you begin on a journey. If you don't know all the steps or answers it's ok. If I knew all the answers to my questions I'm sure I would be so intimidated by the challenges ahead I would never start! So, just say yes and you will figure it out along the way. 3w

christabaca For the past six months or so my husband @gregbbaca has been teaching business classes to women who are making their way out of the sex trafficking industry or out of prison. Our teams came together to make one girls dreams come true and painted, stocked, and refurbished their home into a mini-market. Their eyes filled with tears as their dreams unfolded before them. #regram from @emiliiss || @c2c_central @dirtyfeetmissions @go_international 1mon

christabaca Happy Father's Day Greg! I'll never forget that day 14 years ago when we were in Ecuador at that orphanage and I thought for the first time what an amazing dad you would be someday. Who knew all these years later that you would be the father of MY children AND that we would live in Ecuador together? You impress me everyday by giving only your best to Zion... No matter how tired you are. Thanks for being such a good example to him and for loving him and me so well! Next year two beautiful baca children will celebrate with you. Can't wait to see what the future holds! 2mon
