You’re Not Going to Belize It!

We usually get emails from Tori early Monday morning.  So, I check my phone every hour at work, but I usually get her email before I am done my second patient.  Today, I kept checking and checking every hour… nothing.  Then at lunch, I googled El Salvador in the news to be sure there was not an earthquake or a volcano eruption or something.  Nothing.  Then after work, I checked my email one more time and there was just this little short note.  But it made my day.

“Well this week has been crazy! So to start I got food poisioning, at least that’s what we think it was. Oh it was horrible! Its funny because Im the kind of person who doesn’t like taking pills or whatever, I am more of a tough it out kind of a girl. But this week I was like, two words, drug me. Haha! But now I am all better, no worries. Hermana Smith got sick too. We had a lot of down time this week. But like I said we are all better now, healthy and happy! #SoPassThePupusas.

So nothing much happened during the week other than the greatest moment of my life. My friend Hermana Silvia has a pupuseria, so the other night we headed over there for dinner. She tossed me an apron and said, ¨Let’s see what you’ve got!¨ People kept asking about why the certain pupusas were deformed… those certain ones happened to be mine. I almost put Hermana S out of business! Haha! It was cool working at the pupuseria! And hey they tasted like heaven, so no importa.
So it’s been a fun and crazy six weeks here in Santa Tecla. I have had an amazing companion and amazing friends. The Lord has truly blessed me. I have learned so much in just a short six weeks. Everyday I gain testimony in that God has a plan and He knows best.
So late Saturday night…
I got a call…
From the office…
Take me out of the oven…
Because I am so done…
I´m leaving tomoorrow! My area is at the top of Belize, close to Mexico. I got the area that speaks Spanish! Yay! And my area is called Orange Walk and my companion is going to be Hermana Price!
I believe I´ll get to email later this week, but for now, adios! LOVE YOU ALL!
Hermana P”
I will keep you all posted!
