Last Day in Xela!

Hello everone. We are pretty busy today since we are leaving tonight at 1 in the morning with the church to the temple. We had a little scare on Sat night. The family went shopping and also tried to get some gas. There they found out that there wasn´t any gas. They came home and told us what was going on, as they looked at the new paper. The gasoline trucks were on strike! The law here says that truck drivers and people transporting goods can only drive after 8:30 pm. So they are on strike because it´s dangerous and they keep getting robbed that late at night. So they weren´t leaving the capital and because of that we didn´t have any gas here. They stopped late last night so we have gas again here and we are going to be leaving tonight. We were a little bit worried cause you never know how long these things last. Thank goodness it´s over and things will go as planed.

There´s not a whole lot else going on other then just packing and saying goodbye to everyone. We haven´t been sick, which has been a blessing. I don´t know when the next time will be that I get on so if you don´t hear from me then that is why. Love you all and I will see you soon!
