The time of my Life

Well Its been 2 long but short years hasnt it? Well this is my last email as a missionary here in Paraguay because I am coming home this week. So no more will you be bombarded with these annoying emails every monday. But I would really like to thank all of you for being with me on this journey. For all the support the emails, the letters and packages. Honestly its been an amazing time here in Paraguay and I love this place so much. My companion has also made this last change amazing. Well for some last few stories we had a Baptism this last Saturday. Milagros was able to get baptized. So it was my last baptism on the mission for my last weekend on the mission. But so of course even though it was the last one the work was not going to be an easier. So the water cut in the whole area and it was awful- We had to go the huge water reserve bucket well thing and scoop up just so many buckets of water to be able to fill up the baptismal font. And of course it wasn’t going to be a simple water bucket fill up but it ended up turning into a water fight. And we were both soaking wet by the end of the font being filled. It was actually a lot of fun. This Sunday was also my last sunday in Paraguay and I gave my last testimony. And Everyone went after me and it was the saddest thing ever. Everyone just started to cry and say how they will miss me and its making it super hard because I still cant process me leaving. But thanks everyone for the love and Support. This has been the best decision I could’ve ever made for myself. I am so sad to leave but excited to see what is next. Ill be seeing you all at the end of this week. For anyone who wants to contact me now Ill be getting home Saturday at 6:30 in the morning so you can Facebook me. and well until next time. Thats a wrap.  

 

Its a sweet tamale gone bad

Hey everyone sorry yesterday we did not have anytime what so ever to be able to email so im doing it today. I hope everyones week has been going farely well. Its been really sad at the same time. I have been saying farewells to a lot of my old areas and just how hard it is that I wont see these people for a long time is really hard. My companion and I are having a really good time though which is only making it harder for when its time to go. The weeks go by but they feel like forever at the same time becasue of how much fun it is. This Saturday we will also be having a baptism my last baptism as a missionary so thats actually super emotional. I also gave my last talk on sunday because next sunday its testimony meeting and it just broke my heart because everyone was crying. And after wards a member came up to me and said Elder I am upset with you becasue you made eveyone cry in Sacarament today. Then explaining a little more on the title they gave us a piece of cake and it tastes like a sweet tamle gone bad. It literally wasnt the best cake. BUt mostly because they ran out of milk so they used water and they didnt have enough Sugar either so yeah it just want not a good time. But all in all it was a fun week. Now its only 10 more days until I am back it New York. Until next week.

Holy Cow

Hello Everyone soooo this week was super awesome!! Soo Elder Harder and I are working really hard on tryin to Help Benjamin Aceval get back on its feet. Its a lot of fun in the aspect that there is a lot to do and at the same time im working with my best friend as my companion. So this week actually felt like forever. I felt that it was a really long week. But for sure in a good way because at the same time we are having a lot of fun. Speaking of fun so the reason why somtimes being friends with Elder Harder is super hard is because he makes me do things like go out of my comfort zone. Like climbing water towers…. and im affraid of heights…. so that was fun right. Also we started getting a little frustrated with trying to find people to work with that will progress. But just as we were about to give up we met a miracle. Like actually we met a girl named Milagros shes a cute little 10 year old girl who is the daughter of a Sister in the branch who we just reactivated 😮 I literally had no idea. We thought all her kids were members and she told us she wanted to baptise her daughter and we were like yeah we will tell the Branch President and she said no like shes 10 so you guys have to do it…. And we could not beleive it. It was soo crazy and funny at the same time. Soo turns out we will be having one more baptism. Hope you guys enjoy the pictures too. Of my comp and I getting on a water tower.
