I Love Missionary Work!

Hello everyone, I sent pictures this week of where I live a little bit. We also had a baptism this week of a boy named Enrique. It was really funny actually. My first day here we went to his house and I started asking questions and I asked how old he was and he said 8, then I asked his mom for permission for him to be baptized and she said yes. It was awesome. My companion thought he was 7. It was a great day.

Also, in my district another companionship baptized 5 people!!!!! It was awesome. None of them talked in Spanish, they all talked in Gauraní. I had to do the interviews with a member. They got baptized in a River too. It was awesome. 

Also this last Tuesday an Apostle came to Paraguay. Elder Christofferson came and talked to us here. It was awesome. The Paraguay mission and the Paraguay North mission gathered up and 500 missionaries heard an apostle of the Lord speak. He talked to us in Spanish too which was pretty awesome indeed. I got to shake his hand and everything.

There are a lot of good people here. I really like it here. I'm going to fit in just nicely and if I don't I'm going to make myself fit...haha. I hope you are all doing awesome. Ive been out for a while now I think and I'm grateful for all your prayers and letters and love. Much peace and love to all. I'm living the good life. A missionary life.

Hello Paraguarí!!‏

Hi everyone, I GOT CHANGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I left Caáguazú on Wensday and now I'm here in a place called Paraguarí. I will take photos for next week. It is the only place in Paraguay with hills and mountains and stuff. They a really small mountains but still. 

I'm here with an Elder named Elder Lefler and we were in the MTC together. It is really weird because we have the same time in the mission, about 5 months, and we are companions. We are really new but it is really fun.

I also got a mini calling. I got called to be the District Leader here in Paraguarí. Some of you know what that is and some of you don't so I will explain it. Every mission in the world has an order of Leadership. There is the mission President, Then there are 2 assistants which are always helping missionaries and President Aggazani. Then there are Zone Leaders. There are 14 Zones in my mission and each one has two Zone Leaders and they are companions. So there are 28 Zone Leaders in total. Then each Zone has two or three districts. Each district has anywhere from 6 to 10 missionaries. So there are about 35 districts in the mission and there is only one district leader in each district not like the Zone Leader. Then there are the rest of the missionaries who are in the districts, which are in all the Zones. I'm one of the District Leaders now. So now that you know the organization of the mission, you know what I am. I'm not in charge of the missionaries in my district but I am responsible for them. I think I'm too young to be a District Leader but my mission President thinks otherwise.

My new life here in Paraguarí is awesome. I will take pictures and send them next week. 
Love you all and I hope you all enjoy your week.

I'm sitting here right now thinking about what I'm going to say to all of you awesome people and now I sit here and think and there are some pretty big days coming up in my family life so I will talk about them. Some other stuff too but I am still thinking. 

Changes: We have changes this week, there is a chance that I leave my area and there is a chance that I stay here with my companion, but I will let you guys know that next week. Changes are always fun.

Birthdays: This week, The 8th of November are the birthdays of some very important people in my life that I love. 

My Dad is turning 50, so happy birthday dad. I Love you and I hope you have a fun time on your cruise thing with mom. That should be really fun. That is a half century already. I don't even have two decades yet. OK thanks dad for everything and everyone should say happy birthday to my dad this week.

My grandpa turns 71 this week I think. My dad and grandpa have the same birthdays 21 years apart. That is pretty cool. My grandpa is an awesome guy and while he is not much of an Internet guy, you should all say happy birthday to him on the Facebook account of my grandma's. Hahaha she is on Facebook a lot I think still. Happy birthday grandpa.

Last but not least the 8th of November is the birthday of my dear friend Cody. Cody if you are reading this I want you to know that I love you bud. We have been friends for a long time and you are my best friend. We've been through a lot and have done a lot together and you are a big part of my life and who I am today. Your family has cared for me and has always accepted me as one of there own which is awesome haha. I haven't heard from you yet but I know that you are working know from what I last heard and I hope that everything is going great in your life. I care about you very much and I love you and your family and I hope that you are all doing just great. Your my best friend and that's not going to change. I hope you have a happy birthday. Say hi to your family for me. 

Everything is going good here in Paraguay. We are entering into summer and it is getting really hot. It gets over 100 degrees really easily here but that's OK, you just got to drink a lot of water. I'll let you guys know what happens with the changes this next week.

Love you all very much and the last thing I want to say is.... Hi to my mom. 
Hi mom :D

The Best Couple Months So Far In My Life.

Hi everyone, I have a lot of pictures this week. It is starting to get really hot and the summer is coming. It rains a lot and that's really fun. I hope you are all doing awesome. A couple things happened this week which was a great week.

We baptized a little boy named Lucio. He is really cool and is really happy and I'm glad I had the chance to be a part of his life and one day we will rejoice together. I cant wait for that day.
I also saw a baptism of another group of missionaries in a river. It was pretty cool. It was like going into the Amazon. There are not many places like that in the whole world. It was a neat experience.
OK I love you all. I got to go and teach people. I cant wait!!
