Day 9 - Wednesday

            I was sick the entire day with a stomach virus, (awful), and literally couldn’t get out of bed. Wendy and Chita made me soup and Saday made me the lemonade. They were so good to me. Lots of people stopped by to see that I was okay, which was extremely nice. The pastor called and told me to eat fruit, so Wendy made me a fruit bowl. She also gave me medicine to help with my upset stomach. The “Oracion” today was at Saday’s so I went out on the porch when everyone came over and joined them. They sang Open the Eyes of My Heart so that I could sing in English which was really nice of them. I love spending time in prayer with them, it is very refreshing. When I felt a bit better, I went with Wendy over to the Pastor’s to work on some stuff for “La Semana de los Jovenes”, or week of the children.  That was fun, and I shared with Wendy some things I learned at SB2W like the I’m Third motto and other little things. I like being able to help out in that way and spend time with her. I went back to Wendy’s to sleep for one more night because I wasn’t feeling well still. 


  1. I hope you are feeling better. What great people to take such good care of you, the Americano! I love that song-one of my favorites. How nice of them to sing it in English for you. It sounds like you are really quite busy and I think it also sounds like you are making a difference in the lives of the people of Peralta (an them in you life, too). Again, I am so proud of you and can't wait to read every day about your work there! Con mucho amour! Mama

  2. Hope you are feeling much better - what great caretakers you have. "Open the eyes of my heart" is one of my all time favorites - we used to sing that all the time with the high school kids when we were Campus Club advisors at Tower Hill. Your verse for today Romans 5:8 "While we were still sinners Christ died for us" one of my very favorite verses. Lauren is reading this with me and she says "Hi!" Keep up the amazing work you are doing. Con mucho amour! Tea "Barbie"
