Vivo en Bolivia!

I live in Bolivia!

To God be the glory….I managed to lug 2 (OK…if you count my pillow and blanket combo, 3) carry-ons around 4 different airports in 2 different countries over the span of about 24 hours. And, I am happy to say, there was NO DRAMA to report! Obviously there were MANY prayers going out around the world (or at least the US) and each one was needed…thanks!

Upon our arrival, my new roommate, Stephanie, and I were driven straight from the airport (at 14,000 feet…in case you were wondering) to our new house!!! Some missionaries had come in before to make our place welcoming…so sweet!

Here is my VERY OWN BEDROOM…yes, this is pretty exciting!

And here is 1 of the 2 “catch all” closets for the house…also known as my personal closet “filled” with my Bolivian wardrobe (see Stages of Grief if you want to know how I feel about this!).

Ironically enough, I’ve yet to sleep in my own room once! The nights are just so cold and Stephanie’s queen bed with a movie playing on her laptop is much more invitingJ! Oh well…I’m thankful for my own space just the same!

There is so much more to share, but because this post is already pretty long, I’ll leave you with a few pictures that “typify” La Paz…as I see it that is!

Many people carry HUGE loads and walk up steep hills...they're obviously used to the altitude!

As Logan, our director's son, said "I love La Paz because, no matter where you are, you can always see the mountains." Couldn't have said it better myself!


  1. Beautiful pictures, Meg! And the apartment looks so cute! Glad you're settling in.

  2. Hug!

    Love hearing about your new city and apartment.

    Miss you.

  3. MEG! your apartment is ADORABLE. More pictures, please! I love the raised ceiling and your kitchen looks awesome! I'm so happy for you . . . and Stephanie is so lucky to have you in her bed every night - hilarious.

    your closet does look sparse, compared to typical megan i-inherited-all-of-my-family's-clothes-from-grammy-on-down.

    it's ok. you might just wear a jacket every day anyway.

    love you!!

  4. AHHH!!!! I miss you sweet sister!
    Your new place looks great! I hope Bry, Ella, the new baby, & I can come visit in the next two years!
    LOVE YOU!!! Keep updating, I'll look daily!
