New Adventures!

     Wow. It's crazy to think that I have already been here a month! I am in such awe of all that God has done since I have been here. I am so humbled because of the way that God has blessed me this summer, it's incredible! He is continuing to show me his faithfulness everyday in new ways and I am learning to trust him with absolutely everything!

     This past week we had extended family here all the way from Mobile, Alabama! It was amazing to get to know Gracie and Charlyn's side of the family. Grandpa Simpson spoke at a conference that our church here has every year. They all touched so many peoples lives and it was such a blessing to have them here. We had many family outings which made this last week a blast!

Playing with the kids!
      During the conference I helped with the kids. We played games, talked, and just hung out. It was so fun! These kids were filled with so much joy; it was contagious! I absolutely loved the chance to bond with them and practice my Spanish! They were able to help me a lot, it was awesome!   
Hefziba and I with the picture she drew me! 
     I met a girl named Hefziba. She was so sweet and loving. She spoke a little bit of English too! We really bonded during that weekend. She drew me this picture and it brought tears to my eyes. It's incredible to see how in just 2 days we could have such an impact on each other. It was truly amazing.

     Since I have been here, I have grown so much. Experience this beautiful country with such amazing people has taught me so much. Everyday is a new adventure, with something new to learn from it. God has truly shown me his power this week and I've learned that no matter your age, you can make an impact wherever you are! 

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
 - 1 Timothy 4:12
