What we’ve been doing

We’ve been busy going to language school everyday. We are improving and have moved onto the future tense! Our friends from Ireland have arrived (Peter and Karen) and they are also studying before they go off to Oruro.

Last week we went to visit a prison workshop, for women and their children. The project helps them to pay for their cell by teaching them how to make “handicrafts” which are sold in the town. We went one afternoon to do a puppet show and taught them a song…. in our limited Spanish! We will also be leading a drama workshop at the language institute on Wednesday.

The weather here is hot (about 32 degrees today) and it gets windy in the afternoon. We are starting to apply for our visas which is a long and complicated process here in Bolivia. There seems to be so much red tape, it may take as long as 8 months.

We went on a retreat with Latin Link for 4 days last weekend into the “campo” It was nice to meet up with everyone else we met on the orientation. This weekend we are having our first visit to Sucre to meet the church we will be working with. It is a long bumpy bus journey which may take 12 hours or more. We shall be passing through the highest city in the world… Potosi. Please keep in touch… we need messages. (Chocolate and parcels would be good too!)

  2. Hello lovlies!

    Im having a sleepless nite so I’ve been praying for you both (its now 4.45am!!!) not had a wink yet!

    Anyway, I was just looking at your pix and missing u both loadz but I’m really happy that God has taken such ‘wonderful reflections of His great love’ to Bolivia. Your open hearts and smiles can be easily translated into ANY language!!! xxx

    I know that its difficult for you to see such poverty and the ‘fall out’ that comes from people being so poor, but you both carry with you the ‘love light & hope of heaven’ which is priceless, and thanx 2 Jesus is on offer to all… regardless of wealth!

    Every step you take is another step claiming Bolivian turf for Jesus! So name it and claim it!!

    “Blessed are the feet of those who bring beautiful news” so I bless your sox off in Jesus’ name 🙂

    I pray that God will bless you richly with His gift of knowledge, wisdom and tongues (spanish especially!) as you serve Jesus in reaching souls for the Kingdom.

    Run this race so as to win it guys! Your ‘dad’ is cheering you on from the sidelines and so are we!

    Stay very blessed!

    Hugz, love n prayers

  3. Hi Guys
    Your newsletters are great. I like the piccy of teh mosquito net, which i am sure is very important…nasty things those insects!
    Seeing the picture of the girl puppet reminds me that you could have taken her cousin Molly out with you…she would ahve enjoyed seeing all those children

  4. Dear Mrs Such
    I am missing you and it seems very weird without you. Everyone else in year 6 is really missing you and year 5 think that they have missed out on a treat . Mrs Morgan is a wonderful teacher and I am getting much better at maths now. I went ski-ing in Stoke with Suzy Murphy, Katie Reynolds and Ella Williams. We were in the A team. We came 4th and it was so much fun.
