sunny 20 °C

So this week, again, has been uneventful. Working all week mainly. Friday evening was the Generadores meeting, a group for the 18-30s in the church. That was really good. We met at Desmond and Caroline's house and were asked to lead the whole Sunday service one Sunday in May. So we spent most of the evening discussing that. People tried to get me to agree to sing an English song to the church, but yeah that ain't happening. I would deafen everyone haha.
Saturday I went to Merida with my Spanish family. Paula is an amazing swimming, one of the best in the whole of Extremadura, and she had a competition, so we all went along to watch. Miguel grew up in Merida, so he went to get his mum, then took me, Jorge and Miguelito round Merida. Merida was a major Roman city so has loads of ruins. There's an ampitheatre, theatre, temple, museum and other stuff. It was pretty cool to see. I've been to Merida before but hadn't got to look at the ampitheatre or museum. It was really interesting. Definitely recommend it. Paula won all the competitions she was in that day.
Sunday at church there was a Benefica for the youth. They had all cooked a big meal together for the whole church and arranged for some people in the church to entertain after the food in order to raise money so they could go on the big youth events in Extremadura. It was really good and we had yummy Columbian food. It was a fun day.

Now, all this week there has been a wasp at my window, and it keeps trying to get in. Then it flies away and comes back later with a friend. Then they fly away and come back later with another friend, and so on. I've had about 6 wasps everyday now stalking me through my window haha. I think I've found out why. Turns out there's a hole in my window frame that they manage to wriggle into, and I think they are making a nest. Bit creepy. :-S Evil stalkerish wasps haha.

I'm back in the UK this week for Easter! :D Can't wait. Though it means I miss out on the Badajoz chocolate festival! :(

God bless
