Last year when I went to visit family in California I decided to gather the paperwork that I needed to apply for temporary residency in Guatemala. I paid a lot of money to get all the paperwork that was needed there and here in Guatemala. I have been waiting since November to get some answers. I recently bought my ticket to go back to California for a 2 month visit. Since my paperwork is in process I can't leave the country. Well, actually, I was able to leave once and I used it to go to a workshop in Honduras for Hope Worldwide. 

I have been going to immigration about once a week for the past 3 weeks and I still don't have an answer. I'm hoping to have good news sometime soon. 

I have committed to stay one more year at Christian American School. I have not figured out what I will do after that year. I have had so many things come to mind like moving to another country, but this time in South America. Then the other night as I was journaling I remembered that I wanted to get my Master's degree prior to moving to Guatemala. I'm still unsure, but I know that no matter what decision I make, It will be a good one :) 

I have one more week of work, 2 weeks until I leave. I can't wait to be with my family and work at my old job for a few weeks. Eeeeekkkkkk!! 

Here are some recent pictures of my recent trip to a department called Retahuleu. Enjoy!
