Pictures! Part 2

Alright be prepared for many pictures. Kara had to make up for last week so she sent me 26 pictures to share with all of you. Below each picture is her own description of what it is (with a little editing help!). So enjoy! Also this week Kara is becoming senior companion. Her new companion is Hermana Norton from Utah and she has only been out for 4 months so we will see what happens.
This is what they did to me in San Pedro when I tried to pray. lol!
This is Marisol she is my convert. I just don't know where her baptism picture are but she is amazing! She is 19 but really really tiny.

We had to do a service project and clean a house of a lady. This is her bathroom and yes there is poop on the walls! ewwww. We cleaned it and the next week it was worse then before we came but that is OK the ward tried. It showed lots of unity!!!

I know it is weird to see a picture of ribs but this is a picture of Kara's X-Ray she had taken. Kara sent us an email that said she has pneumonia and that she was placed on bed rest for the week to recover. She says she feels like a bad missionary having to stay home however she says she has no energy so it is probably for the best. She is doing breathing treatments along with humidification and antibiotics. So she should be on the mend soon. Since Kara is feeling down there are no pictures this week but expect them next week :)

So enjoy and there will be more to come next week :) Oh and if you want to look at the pictures in the right order start from the bottom and go up. I downloaded them the way she sent them but they upload the other way.
