It's already started out as a great week - We got a water filter today!  We (really, let's just face it, it's not we, it's just Curt) no longer has to pack 20 liter boxes of water home from the store.  This comes  as we are finally starting to remember not to just rinse out a cup or a toothbrush under the faucet.  We are excited to get to try it out and it sure makes things easier and cheaper.

The missionaries had planned a ward talent show for this week.  They put a lot of work into it.  We had all ages participate.  There was singing, dancing, acting, playing the piano and even a little magic show.  These four pictures are of Hermana Fernandina and her mother.  The missionaries refer to Hermana Fernandina as Hermana Awesome.  She is always willing to help anyone and she has such a positive attitude.  Her mother only speaks Quechuan so Hermana Fernandina explained the steps of how her mother makes her own yarn while her mom demonstrated the process.  They then showed us a blanket and some other handiwork she'd made.  They also sang some very catchy little quechuan tunes and had everyone clapping along.

A good turnout.  There were a lot of us trying to capture the nights events for future enjoyment! 

Young Women did a great job with their song.

This is a group of young adults that had everyone enjoying the night.  Some even participated multiple times.
Sister Missionaries beautiful singing.

Elders had everyone laughing through their magic show.
Curt had hauled our microwave down to the church and we made popcorn for everyone when the show was over.  My favorite part of the night (which of course I didn't get a picture of) - was when a lot of the sisters gathering in the kitchen to see how popcorn was popped in the microwave (and of course we snitched a few pieces - just to test it).  I am often humbled by these wonderful people that without many comforts are living such rich lives.  They are so good to us and we can learn so much from them.
