Simple and delicious iced coffee recipe

My roomate Eliana told me how to make this-she learned from another missionary lady.  It's so good!
1 cup instant coffee
2 cups of sugar
3 cups of hot water
1 small bottle of vanilla (I think about 1/8-1/4 cup)
Mix together and store in fridge. It seems that it will last a few weeks (My roommate left it over two weeks for winter break and it was still delicious!)
Then you add milk and ice to it and enjoy iced coffee (Or you can add hot milk and have hot coffee!). About 1/4 to 1/3 cup of coffee concentrate mix and the rest milk and ice should be just about right.

Potosi: July 2014

 This is our team on the way to Potosi.

 Enjoy the pictures of these adorable kids.  I love their expressions!

 Abby sharing her painting and how God loves what He has created--them!

 I met this girl over 2 years ago.  She's become such a help to us every time!
 This is how the ladies cook. Here they were making potatoes for everyone!
 The clown show is always entertaining.  Waldo, Abby and Kallie did a GREAT job!

 With the money we raised we bought scarves for all the kids.  Super practical for the cooler temps up there.
 Love this song! "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus".
 Some of my favorite things about Bolivia! Aurelia with he and Eulogia's baby Madia and a friendly llama.
 We met these girls in January too.  They live in the city and come up to the campo during their school breaks to help their grandma take care of the sheep.
 Jorge making his rounds.  (That meant a 45-60 minute hike to see the patients at this home).
 Everyone gets a chance to share what God's doing in their life and to encourage the believers we see.
 Waldo pulled several teeth for the people in the communities we visited.  I successfully assisted him without nearly passing out!
 LOVE to see the excitement of the people to hold and read God's word.
 Laura handing out antiparisite medicine.

 Aurelio and Eulogia.  Have known these two since their single days (over 5 years!)

 Our team at the end of the week.
 We were thankful to have a mechanic with us--and that the car had no serious problems.
 Did I mention that the scenery is absolutely incredible?
 This is our team with the church group in Oruro.  They were so hospitable and kind.
