I am so happy that I found a minute to finally spend some time in updating my blog. It is so crazy and loud here at the Promise House with 7 girls and 7 babys (well not all babies, but children..well younger anyways.) Today we were planning on going to the beach, but the forecast predicted rain from the storm that had passed through the week before we arrived. Instead, we decided to go to the market today, and perhaps the beach next saturday (hopefully..pray for no rain!). The market was a lot of fun, I loved to see all the different little shops and the things they were selling. It was closer than we thought so we finished at the market somewhat early. We went back to the PH to get some money for the supermarket and lunch. We got some of our favorite El Salvadorian treats..like pan dulce and chickys (a type of cookie), along with some bread and water for the week. For lunch, Hermano Jorge took us to the mall (which is really nice) to eat at the food court. We ate at a place called los cebollines, which was really good. There was a lot of food but we weren´t too full for dessert. Sam has been telling me about a place called Jungle Snow since she got back from ES last year. It is an ice cream place where they give you a ton of ice cream for a low price. We ordered ¨chocolate king of the jungle¨ and ¨watermelon snow¨. SO GOOD! we should definitely open one in the U.S...i suggest you look it up to see the menu! When we got back to the Promise House, we met Beth, who is a missionary here and went with her to the park. We took a few of the girls and kids there to play. It was fun to take pictures of the kids enjoying themselves and playing around.
For now, I have to eat dinner..frijoles of course! haha but I like them. Pray for the upcoming week, that we would be effective in the prison and orphanage as well as the house. I thank God for you who are praying and I pray that He would be glorified in everything we do here, especially as we start a new week.
