My full Friday of service has been a VERY interesting experience. The service have been amazing.... from an adventerous standpoint its been fun to ride the bus to the middle of nowhere and trek thru the little communities to our studies. I'd never ever before pictured myself living this kind of life, but it's been fun... and the results of my efforts have made it well worth it.

The New House

I've been SOOOO crazy busy here. There's a brother named Lars (from Canada) who will soon be moving to El Crucero. He found a house for rent before I arrived and signed the contract on it.... But the problem turned up when he was accepted for a surgery that he had applied for in Canada. He's supposed to be leaving for Canada the same week (this week) that he was supposed to move in the new house.

Afternoon naps must be one of the best things in the world! When I lived in the states, I rarely had the time for a nap... or if I did, I simply didn't take one. Since I've lived in Latin America, naps are a normal, and required part of daily life. Mind you, not all Nicaraguans nap.... Generally a lot of them have their normal full-time jobs and don't get home until the evening, so there's no time. I guess that's why I rarely napped in Virginia.... but here, let me tell you...

Hi Everyone,

I'm just writing to let you know that I'll be back in Virginia this coming week.... I'll be staying at Charles Creech's house with some friends so, if you want to get in touch with me, call me there :o) OK? I'd love to see you, have lunch with you, bring you shopping with me, or any of that stuff. (WARNING: I'm going into SUSHI OVERDRIVE MODE at 10:55pm Tuesday night.) SEE YOU IN THE STATES!


Summer in Cancun

I never, ever, in my life, thought I'd see the day when I welcomed a cold shower. I'm such a baby. The second cold water touches my skin, instantaneously every pore closes up, every inch is covered in goose bumps, and I go into a mild shock, gasping for air....
