I've moved!

My dearest family, I guess I can't put it off any longer, here at last is an update with how I am getting along. I am trudging along, I guess that's the best way I can put it. I don't know what more I could say. I am doing my best to live every day, to be as usable as I can, but I don't know if it's the summer heat, or lack of people, but I am getting dry again. But these past two weeks have been well enough. Its been cooling off a lot, I think that fall is fast approaching, which I am not looking forward to. Either way it's going to kill, I am just glad that I am here. The biggest thing that has transpired in these past few days is that we moved. After the house flooded for the 3rd time with the rain we got, we were finally given permission to leave. We are now living with the other 4 elders who are in our same ward. We did the move today, so we will see how this week goes with them. I have not slept in 3 days, we have been cleaning so very much, well I won't give him credit, I have been cleaning so much. I still have bleach smell in my nose and on my hands. I emptied the house this morning while he was off at a meeting, so we moved from where we were to where we are now. In the past 5 months I believe I have handled more business like matters than teaching. I have set up rent contracts, I have looked for new houses, I have realtors on speed dial, and the best part is it's all in Spanish, so that's cool to handle. We are now living in a mansion, and I use that word very strongly, it is huge! Also very, very nice, so I am happy. We have farther to go to get to our area now, but it's all good. Our house has a body guard, 3 doors before you get to our house, surrounded by a 15 foot cement wall with barbed wire on top. It's a fortress, and that's where we are at, verses the last place that we had that was held shut by a padlock. ;) So that's fun ;) I am doing well enough, don't you worry about me, I am hanging in there just dandy. We are going to the temple this Friday morning. I don't know what hora, but that will be a nice escape to get to go. We also get to go inside, not just go, but participate, so that's what I am excited about. It's been just about a year since I have been, so I am content. I have received your letters, and they mean the world to me. I love the family picture of everyone making funny faces. I share that one with everyone now, so just think, your face is being shared with people from all the way down here, that's what happens when you send letters with pictures!!!!! Thank you for all that you are doing for me, and for the work of salvation, it's not our work, ni la obra de la Iglesia, sino que la obra del Señor. esta es que es importante al fin de día.
