Boring Week

This week was boring. I had nothing much going on because it was Father’s day and classes got cancel on Tuesday, and since the other volunteers arrived then Sara took my place in Ana Dolores, and classes at El Sitio got cancel as well. The weather is hot! The only interesting thing of this week was hearing Sister Peggy’s story, I had the opportunity to sit with one of the delegations. Listening to the way she talked was really impressive; she express herself with so much enthusiasm and passion, that I wish I could do that in the future when I am talking about my life and what I do in an everyday basis. During this time I have been thinking a lot about vocation, and sometimes is frustrating because I do not know what mine is; I guess is fine and that I do not have to have everything figure out, that sometime I will know my vocation. Listening to the speech I realized that I might have more than one vocation and there is nothing wrong with that, as long as I am happy and doing something for others. Sister Peggy also said that we cannot help everyone in the world, but what we could do is find a group that we want to work with and dedicate our time and energy to it; to not be afraid to ask others for help or advices. She said that all the wonderful work she is doing right now could not be possible if it was not for the organization she works for and the people that have supported her this past years. I am really happy to be here, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to work with so inspirational people like Sister Peggy, she is truly making a change here in Suchitoto. I admire her, she is a strong woman and I am proud to be working with her. If I ever have the chance to come back here I will be so happy to do it.
