Day 1!

Well today has been a crazy day!!! Im going to keep this super short cause I am beyond tired! All the flights went very well with no major problems. We arrived in El Salvador about 12pm, because they are two hours behind the U.S. Our driver Jorge, picked us up and we went straight to the Promise house. There are seven teenage mothers there, ranging in ages from 11 to 21. It pretty crazy, the girls are really sweet and their kids are beautiful!! We enjoyed playing with them basically all night. I asked one of the girls, using my limited spanish, if the girl she was holding was her daughter. In actuality I asked her if the child was her boyfriend!!! They got quite the kick out of laugh and I have a feeling I won´t live that down any time soon! It has been a little difficult communicating with the girls because they speak zero english, but we seem to get around the language barrier by lots of hand motions. We ate a wonderful dinner of Platanos, beans and tortillas cooked by the house mom, Marina, who is quite possibly the sweetest woman I have ever met! Tomorrow we got to the two other centers and we are planning on doing different crafts and things with them. Thanks for reading and please keep praying!!! Adios!
