Hola Mama,Thanks for the pictures and email, its crazy to see Jake`s family growing up, I remember when I went over to his house almost every day to hang out with them. Emma and Larry look so big haha, just another example of how fast time goes by. I am glad to hear you are all doing good and I hope the chipa is good too! The Sopa Paraguaya is like a cornbread, its good with rice and beans.

Hola Mama!Todo tranquilo pa, I`m glad that you are all doing good and had a good first week of school, and you are enjoying the Olympics, it would be cool to see Paraguay win a medal, I haven`t seen any advertising for the Olympics yet here. Glad to hear other young men will be serving missions, I don`t know those guys, but I`m sure that they will learn a lot.
I had an awesome week with a lot of great experiences. O in the morning I had the privilege of going with a convert of my first area in Paraguari named Felicita to go to the temple. I went with my trainer Elder Chalco because with him we baptized her. She went to the temple to recieve her endowments. It was such an awesome experience, and we saw her son Josue who we also baptized, he went to do baptisms in the temple. I was physically exhausted after an we had to make it back quickly for Elias`s baptism because it was the same day! We got back an hour before the baptism started and we had a great service, a lot of members showed up and supported Elias. His Mom Leonida, who is also an investigator, came and was crying and thanking the branch for the support for her family, I think it was one of the most spiritual baptismal services I have had in my mission.

Hola Mama,Estoy super bien y feliz, tuvimos una experiencia muy espiritual este semana y vimos los frutos de nuestro trabajo. First, we also got the call today for transfers, and I will be staying in the area with my companion so I am happy for that, the transfers pass by faster and faster each time.
Always keeping you and the family in my prayers!
