I’m currently in the Andes Mountains of Venezuela on a mission trip with USC’s Methodist Student Network. We are in a small village (Carorita), part of a farming community.

So far, so good, though my Spanish isn’t as good as I’d hoped. We’ve been here one full day, and yesterday we took some time to get acquainted with the community, meet people, and adjust to a new place. We had a meeting with the youth—they were so wonderful. They had a youth meeting (like youth group), and we joined in. It was awesome seeing the universal church and sharing our cultures.

All right, time for breakfast. I’ll write more (and more details) más tarde.

The girls room in the mission house. There were 21 total (guys and girls) who went... maybe 15 girls? This is the room where we all stayed.
