El Salvador: Sunday, January 1, 2012

Wow! These last couple days have been super busy, but fun!
Yesterday, Decamber 31, 2011, really early in the morning, we left for El Salvador. We flew to Houston and had a layover. Then, when we got onto the plane we didn't take off for another 1 and a half to 2 hours. It was super busy at the Houston airport because of the Holidays.But, then around 5 o'clock p.m we finally got to El Salvador. It was so beautiful! (especially from the plane!)
As soon as we got to La Libertad in El Salvador we went straight to church. The music was kind of confusing to sing along with, but there were some songs that were put into English. It was awesome to see that people a thousand miles away are worshiping the same God (with the same songs) as we are.
Today was just as fun as yesterday. In the morning we ate a yummy breakfast of eggs, rolls, watermelon, bannanas, and fried plantanes (wich I tried! and they tasted just like bannanas). Then, we had a meeting with pastor Ivo and also a tour of La Libertad. As I said before, It was beautiful! We saw the beach, the port, the venders, the different foods, and the different people of El Salvador. The people are so nice! Most of them smile at you and try their hardest to understand what you're trying to say. Later, we came back to La Iglesia de Comision (the church we that pastor Ivo works at) and got to spendd time with the young teens in the youth group. It was fun because we played games together and we were sort of able to communicate. It was probably the best part of the day!
And that sums up the two days I've had so far in El Salvador. I can't wait to come home and share the memories with you!   Adios! (for now)
