I am in slight disbelief that we are already in the month of February! Time is going by so fast. I am coming in to my third month of living here in Spain. Although, it has not been without some challenges, I am really loving being here.
Some of my mini wins of January:
I have learned my regular bus routes, as I take them almost daily. I have begun to explore my surroundings in the center of town. I was with out a working kitchen for a week but it got fixed (yay!). I found local roasted coffee and its heavenly! I began my Spanish classes and now I am beginning to understand the sermons at my church (haha!) as well as have small conversations with people.
All of these things, I will admit are not that exciting but it's part of settling into a new place. I am super thankful I get to be here. I am privileged to do the work I do. I help my team out about 4 times a week. I am slightly limited in what I can do until I can independently speak the language. So here's hoping it comes quickly!
