Life to the full

I sometimes wonder, what's the point? Here I am working hard, trying to make sense of things and I still find myself almost catching the drift and then Poof, I'm back where I have started. So here I am at the same spot asking the same question...
Any how, Life is still filled with a lot of adventures and my journey is on its growth.  

The past couple of months have been fun. At work, we took the kids to the children's museum in the city. It was fun seeing them so excited to be there. 

I was venting a few week back about my mission here in Guatemala. I am having a great time teaching, but I don't think that's why I'm here. Then a few days later I received a message asking if I could go to a local orphanage to help out with the younger kids. I didn't even have to think about it. My co-worker goes with me and we are having such a great time reading books and working on their speech and language development. 

Last week I took a little break to enjoy the beautiful view in Zunil, Guatemala. We visited hot water springs and stayed the night at their cute little cabins. It was nice to get away and to think about what I should do in life. I still have not figured it out yet,  but all I know is that I need to be still and wait. 

After Zunil, we took a detour to Chichicastenango where we walked around in the local market. I got a beautiful apron. I would like to go back when I have more money in  my pocket. 

Then I worked on my garden. I still have a lot to do, but I'm getting there.

My little Sarang is getting really big and she's super playful and loving. She likes to sleep on my head so I normally don't allow her to sleep in my room during the night.

Can I ask something from you? Can you pray about what I should be doing next year? I'm not sure if I should stay in Guatemala or serve elsewhere. I would really appreciate it.

With Love,
