Each summer members of Cypress Church and other Orange County Christians travel to Ecuador to assist residents in the Waodani village of Zancudo. In 1956 five missionaries were killed by this tribe and their story made headlines in Life Magazine. Their story was recently made into a movie called “End of the Spear.”
The Ecuador Missions Team is holding a Silent Auction on Friday April 20th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be rare, unique and exotic items featured at this event including two (only two!), four foot-long blow guns (and darts) made by the indigenous, Waodani jungle tribe.
The public is invited to attend this free event to be held at Dragonfly Shops and Gardens, an established and classy Victorian shop in the heart of old-town Orange at 260 N. Glassell Street. All profits from the Silent Auction go toward the Ecuador mission trip. The 14 people in the Ecuador Team include high-school students, college students, and adults.
The Ecuador Team Silent Auction will feature live music by jazz musician Jeff Sisil and other artists. There will be hors d’oeuvres, entertainment and, of course, shopping. Some of the items to be auctioned include art work plus tickets to Magic Mountain, Medieval Times, Knott’s Berry Farm, Aquarium of the Pacific, a hotel stay, In-N-Out Burger, horseback riding, Wine Tasting and Making tours, exquisite jewelry, hand-crafted items and much more.
