This morning, I was a little late to get on, because we had someone come to our window and ask for sili (like a small pepper) that was planted out front. Its Bishops peppers because we live in the front half of his house. Then we ended up sharing with him and he asked where our church was and everything :) It was kind of funny but cool experience. Then I took pictures of the house for you :) hope you got them all!!
this was a path with no people so we took a picture :) 
we have houses close to the seaside 
we will try to take a picture of for you and this is the sea side too from a distance :)

more of the path :) 

This week has been wonderful and I'm sorry I don't have much time. I need to go but this week has been good! I'll send less pictures next week and write a longer letter for you :)

I feel like the weeks go so fast and the same things are happening alah!! haha :) Robert is still progressing which is amazing!! We had a little bit of a rougher week this past week our key indicators were lower than last week alah! But this week they will shoot back up :) I know we have the help of the Lord and I am so grateful for everything God has given us!! 

I am grateful for my companion as well! Sister Herrera is amazing!! I really have been blessed with companions in this mission :) I love it so much!! I am grateful for you, family, and everyone in my life :) You all really have helped me so much and I am so grateful for your love for me and I can see it :) 

I know I am not the best letter writer but i can email people back easier but it's short. We don't have a post office in our zone but I will have to get permission to go to it. 

Anyways, I'm trying to do better!! I love you all and thank you to everyone who has written me!! Especially since Christmas as well!! I thought about it and I haven't written really anyone back alah!! I'm so sorry!! Forgive me but know i appreciate it and am so grateful for you!! Sister Shumway, our family and cousins :) The Hope and Miller family for your packages at christmas and everything! I am so blessed with everyone!! As well as the Polar Express :) Thank you thank you thank you!! As well as the christmas cards I have received!! (blackhursts, spinders, hopes)
