Hi everyone! Just in case you were wondering if I deleted you as a friend from facebook, I decided to fast from facebook until September 1 because I felt that it was distracting me from God and making relationships here. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to contact me. Also, thank you for your prayers. This past week I went to a small group and this Sunday I was invited to a church that is walking distance from my house. I'm also getting more accustomed to life here. Thank you for your prayers and supplication on my behalf.

I'm still adjusting to life down here and it has not been easy.
I enjoy walking to and from work everyday. Yesterday, I walked to the Metro to buy ingredients for the dinner I was going to make for my family and had to walk a couple of blocks with bags of groceries, I considered it my workout for the day. I cooked spinach, mushroom, green onion, cheese and turkey omelets with a side of shredded olluco (a small potato from Peru) and fresh salsa. It turned out really well. Cooking has been very helpful- I love doing it and I get to introduce my family to a sometimes new and healthy meal. Next week I think I'm going to make a chicken tortilla soup and taco salad. Cooking dinner is the highlight of my Monday. Soccer is the highlight of my Wednesday.
I badly miss Church and small group and the amazing fellowship of Christian brothers and sisters that I had in San Diego. I still haven't been able to go to a church service, since I'm still trying to figure out transportation details. There is a Calvary Chapel church down here that I would like to go to. I really want to make it there- I desperately need the Christian fellowship. I've had to rely on God so much these past couple of weeks. Life away from everything that was comfortable- independence, a car, Church, small group, family and friends, being able to clearly communicate has not been easy. Communication and being misunderstood has been very challenging for me, these past couple of weeks have been trying. If you read this, please think of me in prayer.
