Long Time, No Post!!!

First of all, apologies for not posting more often. There hasn't been much going on since we've been back in California, so there isn't a lot to write about.

Things are finally starting to come together now. Zach just started working at Teavana this week, and I started a tutoring job a couple weeks ago. We have a few odd jobs here and there, and hopefully will be able to save up to get back to Honduras soon. Still trying to find something online that we can take down there, I'm sure it'll work out when we get closer to leaving.

Today I did letter writing service for the first time in forever. It's been really nice to get to work with different ones in the congregation and get to know them. Zach knows everyone since this is his home, but I never really got to know anyone on our previous visits.

We are living in a trailer, and it is awesome. At first, I was going crazy because I thought we would be claustrophobic, but it's been really nice. This is forcing us to live really simply, which is good because Southern California is full of shiny objects! We have running water all the time, thank goodness, but we run out of propane occasionally and then spend a few days cooking on the George Foreman. Does anyone know how to boil water on one of those?
I remember in Honduras all I wanted was a long, hot shower, and being in the trailer, there isn't much of a hot water heater, so I still don't get them. I'm a little put out by that, but since I'm already in the habit, it's not so bad. I'll be prepared to go back.

The weirdest part of being back in the States is driving everywhere. There are some different stores that are really close, and the Hall is about a mile away, but we drive instead of walking. We have definitely gotten lazy. We will have to work on that.

Ok, well that is all for now. I'll let you know when something interesting happens.
