Week 3 with a Week 2 report!


How are you all doing?? Ive  had a great week here in Paraguay. Its been a fun week this week. There isnt a ton to update on. Its just been another week here in the mission. And Ive enjoyed every minute of it.Ill just give a quick update this week

WE were able to put a date with Angie for the 25th of June. She is super excited. She immediatly accepted the date and she told us that she is super excited. Its really been a big miracle with her. A member reference, She got permission from her Dad (HUGE blessing) and she is doing very, very well. She is reading the Book of Mormon and Praying. She knows its true. Shes told us many times. She is doing very well.

Victor isn really progressing anymore. Its very hard to find him at home and its just been a little bit rough to find him. But we will be focusing on him this week and hopefullyhe will progress.

Kinda had a funny expirence yesterday. We were just walking back home last night and on the way home we passed by a drunk guy. Hes one of those neighborhood drunks that you always just know hes not in his own mind. But last night, as I passed by he started talking about how USA eliminated Paraguay, He wasnt really happy about that and he said that he would never talk to an american again. Its kinda sad, but I think of it more as being funny. Honestly Drunk people are some of the funniest people to talk to, but its not always a good thing.

Thats all for this week!! Love you all

Week 2 with a Week 1 Review

My oh my what a week it has been... Long would be a good way to say it. Its always long when there are changes. Luckilly, I will be staying here in Huguito for my last Transfer. Unluckily Che Ra`y (thats Gauranì for my son) Left me.. Its always hard leaving a sonđŸ˜¢ but hey, That's the mission for ya.

So my new Companion is Elder Cerron. He is from Lima Peru. He's been here about a year. We get a long just fine. Still getting to know each other but its pretty fun being with him. Cool act for ya, Elder Cerron's younger brother is a professional soccer player and right now is in The states for the Copa America representing Peru! Do you even know what the Copa America is? Its a huge deal here. Its like a mini world cup but all the teams are here in the Americas. It's going to be fun because Saturday USA plays Paraguay! Haha try to watch it!!

So big great fantastic news from this week!! You ready for this!! So Angie finally got permission to be baptized from her dad!! She was so excited when she told us! It was so cool to see her that excited. She was super excited. haha. Sadly though, We weren't able to teach her. Supposedly she had some test that she really wanted to study for. But for sure this week we will talk with her.

Other than that, there isn't much going on. We haven't found Victor which is sad, but we keep trying. We keep praying and fasting for him.

I can't think of any funny stories right know. I know there is something, but I just cant remember it. Hmm maybe next week!!

Let me know of any questions you have!! Love you all
