Goodbye to Yataity

Goodbye to Yataity

After the multiple security issues and other factors I experienced in my site, it was decided that it was best that I no longer live in Yataity.  With sadness, but with great hope for the future, I have said my goodbyes.  I have made many beautiful friends in Yataity and I will never forget them. I will be writing another blog in the near future with information about my new assignment.  More and more I am impressed with the Peace Corps and the way they have handled the details of my move.  I am full of gratitude for them!

Below is the letter I posted to Yataity on facebook today, in my attempt at Spanish, and then the English version.

———————————————————

Mis Amigos & Amigas de Yataity: Voy a extrañar a cada uno de ustedes. Estoy publicando palabras que había escrito anteriormente con respecto a las artesanas de Yataity, porque estas palabras describen completamente mis pensamientos para Ustedes y para Yataity. Esas palabras son publicada abajo. A todos las artesanas y a todo el pueblo de Yataity – Gracias por su amistad y su apoyo.

“Estimada Artesana, lo que hizo las manos que ese día? Sabiendo exactamente dónde colocar una puntada, habla con tu amiga, tu hermana, tu madre, al mismo tiempo pintando un cuadro con aguja, hilo de rosca.

Sonrieron el uno al otro y dijo ‘A Dios!’ y yo sabía que estaba trabajando duro aún disfrutando el momento después de gratificante momento de ver diseños que tus manos requisar tan suavemente sobre el paño.

Realmente puedo imaginar la belleza harán esas manos! Cada día traerá consigo nueva creatividad e innovación. Mira con anticipación a los éxitos tendrá en la vida.

Se lo agradezco. Por favor, gracias a otro y luego pasarlo. Extendió la gratitud que tiene para este lugar, y por la oportunidad tienes que vivir juntos, de común acuerdo, pidiendo bendiciones diariamente por los demás vidas, en un lugar que es como ningún otro, este pequeño, hermoso pueblo, Yataity.”

Abrazos,
Yeni

En él no hay sur ni norte;
Pero una gran comunión de amor
A lo largo de toda la tierra.”

My Friends of Yataity, I will miss you all! I am re-posting some thoughts I had written previously regarding the artisans of Yataity, because these words describe my thoughts completely, for you and for all of Yataity. To all the artisans and all the people of Yataity – Thank you for your friendship and your support.

Dear Artisan, what did your hands make this day? Knowing exactly where to place a stitch, you speak with your friend, your sister, your mother, all the while painting a picture with needle, thread.

We smile and say “A Dios!” and I know you are working hard yet enjoying the moment-after-rewarding-moment of seeing designs that your hands so gently commandeer onto cloth.

Just imagine the loveliness those hands will make! And each day will bring with it new creativity and innovation. Look with anticipation to the successes that you will have in life.

I thank you. Please thank one another and then pass it on. Spread the gratitude you have for this place, and for the opportunity you have to live together of one accord in a place like no other, asking blessings daily for the lives of each other, in this tiny, beautiful pueblo, Yataity.

Hugs,
Jane
“In Christ there is no East or West,
In Him no South or North;
But one great fellowship of love
Throughout the whole wide earth”
