I'm very sorry I haven't written in so long! I'm going to blame it on the internet, ok? Don't be mad, be glad i'm alive! On Saturday, I survived the worst storm of my life, in a car without windshildwipers and headlights, among other things. It only lasted 7 minutes, but we were in the eye of the storm for those 7 minutes... on the same street, within 1 block (or maybe right underneAth this, we couldn't see a thing!!!) of this:
Can you see the tower bent in half?? THIS WAS THE STREET WE WERE DRIVING THROUGH!!! WE PASSED THIS DURING THE 7 MINUTES WHEN THIS TOOK PLACE!!!
HUGE, OLD trees were uprooted all over the city of Asuncion. We lost power for a few days, and even had church in the dark with candles and flashlights!
I'm honesly grateful that I survived this storm. Thank you for praying!

How my life has flashed before my eyes this week...
- Storm: you know the story
- Electricution: Hint. Don't try to take a broken piece of your charger out of the socket. 220 volts of electricity is not a pleasant feeling.
- Darkness: I came home late; took a bus that dropped me farther away; my neighborhood had no electricity; I walked in pitch blackness!
Thank you Lord for Your protection!
