I have complained a lot this winter but it is beautiful to look up at the mountains and see the snow. It rarely rains here (they’ve been in a drought for years), but we have had a little bit of precipitation. Each time the rain ends there is a larger covering of snow on top of the mountains.
I’ve been visiting a children’s home every other Saturday morning. The kids are really fun, and they like me because I’m a gringa. They try to speak a little English that they have heard on tv. I try to speak my spanish with them and they are very patient. We will play games or do art projects together.
God has been so kind to us. He keeps me busy so I am less homesick. We have friends that are here with the US Embassy. It’s funny because they lived in the town next to us in Texas so we know a lot of the same roads, churches, etc. when we talk about the Metroplex.
We have enjoyed good meals and conversation with them. And we went to see Top Gun which I really liked!
Just a short post to keep learning how to do this!
