Hola friends and family!!
The work here in Conci is awesome! We have been working hard and it has been so hot and humid here! We’ve been wearing our sombreros for some shade on our face every day. Everybody gives us water with ice but it melts within 5 minutes of proselyting but it’s good while it lasts!!! I love missionary work and sometimes I just think to myself man I think I’m in the prime of my mission. I love the work, I love the people, and I really am just enjoying my life each day here in Paraguay!
Happy Thanksgiving to all! I can say that I had a very different Thanksgiving! They don’t celebrate it out here but I did have some fun. We were in Redencion for Thanksgiving and we actually had the opportunity to help Liz Ramona and her family set up their nativity for Christmas! It was super sweet and fun because they are soooo creative! They had their glass pieces but then to make it pretty we climbed ladders and cut the flowers from the palm trees and had pieces of iron that we bent to make an arch and decorated it with the flowers. Then we dug up grass to put underneath and it turned out so beautiful! It was cool because Liz is our recent convert, we baptized her in September, but now we are teaching her parents and they’ve been progressing as a family with family prayer. It was so fun to do the nativity with them and for sure the kids of Redencion will have a little bit better Christmas. They don’t have much but they are the sweetest people I know!
A funny thing that happened this week was the little girls in Redencion told me that Brinda, one of the girlies that are always in my pics, was playing a game and she was Hermana Hafen…. and she was teaching them on a piece of paper that we can’t drink coffee, beer, or do drugs haha I thought that was so cute and hey at least they are learning from us!!!! The work in Conci is great! I can’t wait to see the miracles in December!
Thanks for all your prayers and support! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!
