Hey! Remember [3] way back in mid-August when we asked you to join our Flickr group [4] and to upload photos.

Do you remember that we also said, “It’s time to change our banner. And we want the next photo up there to be yours.”?

Well…we did. And you did.

  • 22 people joined the group. (And we still have room for more! [4])
  • 652 photos were uploaded. Woo hoo! (And we still have room for more! [4] Are you getting that? :-) )
  • One photo was chosen for our new blog banner. Here it is, courtesy of AlyssaEryn [5].

I took this picture last summer in Tena, Ecuador. It’s a small village that is actually about 20 miles away from the place where Jim Elliot and Nate Saint where killed in 1956. I was there doing a Bible camp for kids living along the river.

The little boy in the picture is named Christian, and he stole my heart from the very first day. At the time of the photo he was five years old, but I’m not sure of his exact birthday. A natural model, he would often pose so I would take his picture, then run over to me to view the tiny screen on the back of my camera. – Alyssa

Our next blog banner could be yours. We’ll be doing this again in a few months, so keep uploading [4].
