New friends

The other day Kelly (a teacher friend) and I met this cute older couple at the bakery by our school. They helped us buy some food because our Spanish is not good, and they invited us out on Saturday. They are Bolivian, but because he has worked in oil companies they have lived all over the world, including several years in California. Tere and Rolly. I walked over to school and met them at 11:00 and they drove us to their travel agent where we got all sorts of excellent information about travel in Bolivia! I'm ready to go! So many cool things to see here! Can't wait!

We then drove around the city and went to a mall where I bought a pillow. Yeah! No sore neck tomorrow from the horrible one I had. We ate at the food court there, then headed back to their house. Or should I say houses? They have 2 houses right next to other. And they live in both of them....Beautiful things from all over the world fill both houses. They live next to a Country Club and we walked over to check it out and had some lemonaid and coffee.

I've been trying to figure out which church to attend on Sunday, and earlier in the day we drove past a Mormon church. There was someone outside. We stopped and he gave us another address of a church closer to my house, so after we dropped Kelly off they were trying to help me find the church. We found it, but couldn't get into it from the road so we were trying to find a way there, and I saw Sister missionaries walking down the street! I told Rolly and Tere and they said how do you know, and I said I can just tell! We drove over to them, and sure enough, I know the missionary look. One was from Chile and one from California. Sweet girls. They are in the other ward, but said that there are North American Missionaries in my ward. I'm excited for tomorrow. It's going to be interesting! Course I won't understand anything! The missionaries are going to go and visit Tere and Rolly sometime, they seemed to really want to welcome them too.

It was a really nice day, and I'm so grateful for this wonderful couple who took time out of their day to show us Santa Cruz, and the wonderful things Bolivia has to offer.
