Well Hola everyone!!!! I do not have the recorder this week so I will
just type it up! This week was crazy! We have been doing divisions
with the Zone leaders and this past weekend we went back and worked in
my first area!! It was awesome to be able to see everyone again and to
actually be able to speak to them now hahaha! Everyone was great and
during the day we found some inactive members who hadn’t seen the
missionaries for like 20 years and they were soooo happy to see us
again!! Once you have felt the truth of the gospel you just never
forget about it! We then went to church there also on Sunday and I
gave a talk and it was cool because it had been like a year since I
had given a talk there! Then on Tuesday we left for Paraguay, when we
got here and did divisions, yesterday with elder barrios and elder
choque! It was awesome! I went with elder choque and we had some
amazing lessons! One we had was with a girl whose name is Griselda and
she has been investigating for a while now and we taught the
restoration and she said that she finally feels like she has found
the truth! She said she had been praying and now she knows! She now
has a date for baptism on the 15 of August! She was in tears! It was
amazing to be able to see someone with e desire to be baptized and be
strong in the church! That was an experience I will remember! One
thing that I have been doing now is going over my patriarchal blessing
and it is amazing how much you can learn from it! It is definitely a
blessing from God that we have! I have been focusing too on learning
the other languages too to be able to really communicate with
everyone! It is super fun! My companion and I are doing great and just
having a great time helping out the other missionaries! It is weird
to think how much time I have in the mission! They say I am one of the
old missionaries now haha! It really is crazy how fast time flies when
you are serving the lord! I love you all sooooooo much and hope you
have a spectacular week!!! Please be safe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love

We had a super busy week. It was transfer week and I love transfer week, it is so fun. It was super sad to see a lot of my dear friends go home on Tuesday, I will miss them. Later Tuesday we went back to the airport to pick up a batch of new Elders and Sisters and this group is amazing! They are so excited and eager to work! I had a really good time working with them and their trainers! We have a few new Americans! It will be a very busy month, President will be interviewing every missionary, he started with us and I truly love the time I have with him during interviews, He is a great man!! He is very smart and wise! We will be traveling all month working in many areas of the mission, we are excited! I love you all!! Tell everyone to write me and send more pictures!! I cant wait to see pictures of Kyle & Amanda's baby! And I cant wait to hold Kaden and Brayden!! They are getting so huge! Love you all so much!!
