After three days of the same question, from the same child the only thing I can do to keep from yelling at her is to laugh. Laugh along with me, or at me as the case may be. Here’s our conversation, the same one every day.
4 year old: “miss why do you talk like that?”
Me: “like what miley?”
4 year old: “like that miss.”
Me: “like what?”
4 year old: “wierd. Speak like me, miss. It’s easy.”
Today one of the older boys piped up. He’s 7. “It’s okay. no one understands the miss.”
As much as I try to imitate them, pretty sure we’ll be having this conversation about my spanish again tomorrow and for the next 20 years.
After living in Peru for a year and a half I am finally a legal resident of the country! I hold in my hands my carnet, esentially my green card. Normally residency is an easy process in Peru. All the other missionaries had achieved residency within months of their arrival. However for some reason or another my residency has been held up for over a year. As the end of my internship and possibly my time in Peru draws near I have finally recieved my legal status and approval from the government. Thank you for joining me in pray for my residency. The Lord has heard and answered. Please join me now in praising the Lord for His provision in this act of the earthly government.
Ash Wednesday at Castillo Fuerte
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:9
During lent this year, the children at Castillo Fuerte learned to understand God’s mercy for us by sending his son to suffer in our place and go to the cross for us.
