Ok so there weren’t any. Apparently our little 6.8 (it got upgraded) earthquake didn’t even make any national news except in Cuba and India. After a bit when my heart stopped racing and we tried to go to sleep, some of the more obnoxious members of the community thought it was a good idea to drive around the center of town (right outside our window) and blast music for a long time. Nothing like a good heartbeat bass to put you to sleep. Or make you worry about another earthquake. Upon more reading of the news our little earthquake is nothing compared with what is going on in other parts of the world, so we are very grateful. Plus it made Aaron post, so that’s exciting too.
Things here are good. I start teaching my self-esteem class to the teenage girls today. Yesterday we helped OSSO move to their new orphanage. It wasn’t too hard (well, maybe for Aaron, he was helping with the fridge and things like that) and the kids LOVE their new place. Lots of room to run around, new things to explore, etc. So that was very fun and exciting, we were lucky to be here to see that.
Last night the young men had a stake talent show thing, and we are happy to report that ours was surely the most funny. Plus the guys had a good time and their parents were proud and happy. (I was worried they might beat us for the fart scene) Last night before that they were here practicing and we fed them dinner, rice and some stir-fry steak dish, and they were like “hmmm this is different. But good…” Really we’re pretty sure they didn’t like it, but they have really good manners.
That’s about it. We’ve been here for over a month now, so it’s time for you to come visit us.
