Still not sure of the day...somewhere around 75.

So, here's the story:

I have left Hogar Miguel Magone. There are lots of versions why, but the one that makes the most sense to me (and will sound the most believable to friends, enemies, and complete strangers alike) is that the Hogar brought me there for one reason and I went there for another. When they found that their reason wasn't a priority on my list, they asked me to leave (rather than ask me to make it a priority). So, I am now in Antigua, Guatemala, the most cosmopolitan city in Guatemala; English is almost just as widely spoken as Spanish. So, I'm here, and I'm alive.

I'm looking for work or even somewhere to regroup. I have some funds still; I'm not completely broke. Something happened with the money, and the Hogar felt that they should be paid for every day I was there (like a hotel). They seem to be discounting the work I did every day while I was there.

Anyway, I have no hard feelings with the Hogar and hope to visit them from time to time if time and money permit. I suppose a great deal of it depends on where I end up. I still have a few leads to follow up on.

Please keep me and my work (or current lack thereof) in your prayers this next week (if you haven't been doing so all along).

I love you all and am praying for you all as well.
