May 8, 2017

HEY so changes happened this week and I couldn't be more grateful! I will admit that it was hard to say goodbye, but I knew that my work there was complete (was a bit easier to do the goodbyes) I am currently in Mariano with Hermana Roncallo - who I LOVE! She is from New Jersey.  This is her last change in the mission, so I will make sure she ends with a good last change.  We have only been together for a few days, but it feels like we have known eachother for awhile.  It is nice to switch it up and have an American comp.  We also are in the ward with the Assistants to President and another companionship of Elders. This area is huge with 3 companionships.  We are the only Hermanas in our zone and combined with the Elders in the Chaco. ALSO I am super close to San Jorge! It is nice being close to everyone again and the office!  Hopefully I can run into some members from San Jorge on the bus one of these days.  As for Pardo, she is in LOMA which is close as well. Changes were crazy, so many of my good friends returned home this week.  So happy for them.  I cannot believe I have a year on the mission - sure goes fast.  Will be home before I know it.   This area is seriously so great - really excited to get to know it better.  We are helping Adrian,(he has his call to Chile) with his preperation with his mission.  We had a good lesson with him and we all bore our Testimonies with him.  We also have a baptism date set with Artarasio.  He is 77 and attended church with us this week.  This area is full of very special people.  It seems really right to be in this area.  President Evans even told me that I am needed here.  Seriously cannot wait to meet more people and keep the work going forward. I also met Naty.  We talked about the importance of prayer, scripture study, and Holy Ghost.  Also taught Lorenzo, he is an elderly gentleman who is in a band.  We taught him about our purpose here on earth.  I will make sure to take lots of pictures this week.  Hermana Roncallo and I still need a picture together.  We are going shopping today down in Asunsion.  There is a Forever 21 and other shops.  Might get some new things - sure is time.  Also I am going to help her with her going home outfit.  I do have farewell pictures that I will send in just a bit.  That is exciting that you have sister missionaries now.  Also poor Adam about his rash.  SUPER EXCITED TO DO SKYPE! We are doing it on Sunday! Hope you all have a good week.  LOVE YOU ALLLLLLLL
