Well, I'll be!

Against all odds, we have finished the first of our three years here in Perú.  We arrived last year on June 29th, confused as we could be, but awe-struck by where we were.
Though it didn't sink in at the time, I have realized since that the 107 missionaries who were in the Mission at the time were very uneasy about what the New President and His Wife were going to be like.  Was he going to be mean?  Nice?  Old and cranky?  Not-so-old and cranky?  What?!
We have learned a lot in the last year, raising the possibility that we will learn a lot in the next year also.  We have been very lucky to not have any more serious illnesses than we've had (one), and not very many missionaries who have had to end their assignment early.
I wonder a lot about my effectiveness, but I am reassured when I am around our missionaries, and feel their love and desires to do what's right.
We are looking forward (uneasily) to the next couple of years.
