Yippee, I finally own a car in Bolivia!! In June, three years and eleven months to the day of moving here, I came to the decision that it was finally non-optional. Having three homes strung out pushed me over the edge. I was spending a small fortune in taxis for the days when I had no time for walking/buses (almost always) or was with babies and/or small children (more and more frequently these days) or a lot of stuff, and that still isn't the most efficient mode of transportation.
So Last Monday night one of my prayer requests to our ladies Bible study group was to find a car soon. Exactly the day after, I was walking and walking downtown (thanks to blockades) to a hearing aid fitting for baby Benito, and we stumbled upon this car for sale! I talked to the owner right then and there, and two days later my Dad took it and other options into the mechanic with this one easily coming out the winner. It also got thumbs up approval from kids and tias alike! I've already had anywhere from 2 to 8 babies/kids in it at once (don't worry--the 8 kids was just to give a spin around the block!). We are blessed! :-)
Adios, Shana and Hillary - Thanks to Carla Booher for the blog! :) Wednesday night we had a "going away" party for two of our volunteers. Shana is from Texas and has been touring...
