Hello again! I'm just going to start off by saying that life is crazy here in Ypacaraí!! We have eaten some weird stuff and walked through the jungle and it´s seriously so great!!!! Sometimes when I am sitting under the shade of a mango tree, or eating HUGE mangos, or riding in a bus for 30 minutes to go email my family and everything around me is green, I thank my lucky stars-and Heavenly Father, of course- for this incredible opportunity I have to be in Paraguay! We are having so much fun and working so hard and it feels so gooood to be a missionary!
We have been working on reactivating the Patiño family and they have come to church 2 weeks in a row now!! They are preparing to go through the temple and be sealed soon! I am so so so happy for them! They have 3 little girls and they are so great! We have FHE with them tonight and I am so excited! Teaching families is seriously the coolest!
We also did a random contact this week and found a girl named Pabla. SHE IS SO PREPARED TO HEAR THE GOSPEL!!! You should have heard the questions she was asking! She understands what we teach her and the why. It is so cool! It´s refreshing to hear somebody accept what we teach and not follow the traditions of their parents aka Catholic church. Hahaha
I love you guys and I´m pumped to hear about all the festivities you have going on for Christmas! Remember why we celebrate!
