These last few days have been really hard on me.
With not being able to communicate, ask simple questions, and to even figure out what is going on. 
A week where everything is Spanish has been so hard.
I’ve felt like a child unable to leave her mother. 
Feeling helpless. 
It has to be the worst feeling ever. 

I have taken Spanish classes, but I don’t know what has help. 
I don’t know what is sticking. 
I don’t know what is helping. 
I don’t know at this moment if it will ever work. 
I want to learn but right now it’s so hard  

Let me tell you that is a lot harder than I had anticipated.
There are many days I want to give up and return home. 
I have been here a month and I am very homesick. 
I am missing my friends. 
I am missing my family 
I am missing my boyfriend. 
I miss being able to talk to just anyone. 
I miss driving with my friends. 
I miss being able to go to the grocery store and buy thing with a currency that I understand. 

I will be here for a year I made a commitment. 
I. Made. A. Commitment. 
That is what I am sticking to. 

For I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:19 
That is the verse that is getting me through my daily life.

Urguay has been amazing. 
I love this city, I know this is where God wants me here for sure. 

I am learning a lot, but I will say the hardest thing for me is 
Patience with the kids. 
Patience with the change. 
Patience with myself. 

Today, we went to the market, which is called the fetea. 
The people are my favorite thing to watch. 
All of the moms trying to get everthing they need.  
The fathers chasing after the football (soccer ball) their kids just kicked. 
The kids chasing each other in a game. 
All the vendors trying to sell all of their stuff. 

There is so much about this city that I love
And to think I have only been here for 10 days wow...

I'm excited to see where God is going to be bringing me over these next 9 months. 

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
