It's been a little while since I've written, but that's alright! I'm back!
This week has been pretty low key, not a whole lot going on. Hence, not much to write about. I still love going to Corason, the kids are absolutely precious! This week, we've been teaching them the vegetables in English, and yesterday, we painted with vegetables!
Despite struggling a LOT lately, I have had some good moments :) My faith has grown immensely, and I honestly spend hours a day studying the Bible, and I love it. I have a sketch book that I've been filling with some of my favorite verses. On hard days, I read through them and am reminded of God's love for me.
I also want to thank my family and close friends for reaching out to me this week to check on me! It means a lot and I miss you all!
Today, we had a meeting that takes place on the last Saturday of every month. We talk about life goals, which has been really helpful actually. Some of my goals include, becoming COMPLETELY fluent in Spanish, studying the Word of God everyday, running everyday, eating better, and taking better care of myself. The latter are some of the most difficult, unfortunately. However, I have a plan, people to keep me accountable, and motivation!
After the meeting, Albino called a family member who, for 10 soles per plate, delivered a plate of chicken, potatoes, and even a little sugar cookie bar for lunch. It was AMAZING. I was supposed to go up to the mountains today, but the ladies who go, didn't today. So Delia, Emanuel, and I went down to the grocery store (we've been craving peanut butter). Unfortunately, it costs $10 American dollars. We also looked for some cake. Delia and I are going to church tomorrow and need to bring a cake, but we decided to buy one on the way there. As we walked back up to the house, we decided that we were hungry, so we stopped at a street vendor and bought what's called salchipapas. It's French fries, sausage, noodles, and some rice. Most Peruvians eat it covered in ketchup and mayo, so I had to too! It was actually amazing.
Overall, it's been a good day, and I'm hoping more will continue.
Thank you for your prayers!
