Hola familia y amigos!!! This week was a good one, ringing in the New Year and all! I don’t have a whole lot of time today so I will quickly tell a few short stories:
2) A dog peed on me this week. Yes, peed on me. I was standing in la calle writing something down in my agenda and a dog se acercó a mi (came near me) and I was like, oh hi doggy cause I like dogs and then it lifted its leg and peed on me!!!! I was not happy, I screamed and everyone in the calle laughed. [I wish I had a picture of that!]
3) CAMBIOS ARE THIS WEEK. I am a bit nervous but learning to trust in the Lord in all things. Please pray for me that I’ll be happy with whatever passes and accept His will!
Sorry I don’t have much more time today but enjoy the pictures. Also the title of this email is from a song. Yes, Pacasmayo has its own song!
Peruvians have a New Year’s Eve tradition of dressing up a large doll or effigy (sometimes stuffed with fireworks) with old clothes and burning it on the street. This signifies getting rid of the old, and making a new start. These were a few we saw on New Year’s Eve.
The missionaries of Pacasmayo
There is a verse on the statue. The verse is taken from the Wisdom of Solomon 3:1, “the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God”
A few pictures of our beautiful beach
These last few pictures are of the Pacasmayo (oceanfront) Cemetery where Nora (my friend who died unexpectedly a few weeks ago) is buried. We found her grave on our last Pday.
