Another great week here in Paraguay :) haha It rained a whole lot! Almost every day. It's gettin ginto the winter season here in Parguay, which is a bit different that back home. Turns out, it actually does is cold ha It's supposed to his (The Cold) this month and next month! This week, we spent a few days 100% soaked, walking around for miles, knocking, well clapping, at peoples houses. Even with the members, it's hard to get in and teach them when it rains! ha We had a few miracles this week in church. Two people were brought to church by a few members, and we didn't know either of them before Sunday in church haha And they both want to get baptised too! Which. Is. So. Awesome. Especially after walking around in the rain for a few days! ha We have one investigator, Augusto, who is gonna get baptised this Saturday. He seperated from his girlfriend, who he was living with, to do it! HE is like 40 years old, and sells "Chipa", a paraguayan donut thing (Made with corn and pìg fat) for a living on his motorcycle. He is way cool haha And he quit smoking too! Way cool to see the changes he has made in his life, because of Jesus, and his Atonement for us. My comp is so awesome too. I seriously feel so blessed that I get to be with him! haha HE is not afraid to lay down the law either. We went to help some people attend church on Sunday, and they didn't want to leave their house and come with us. He shared a few powerful scriptures with them.... haha Check out Heleman 13, the last for verses haha Anyways sorry for the unorganized letter. A thought to finish: Had interviews with the mission president this week! I asked him what it means to be a successful missionary, and he told me that " A successful missionary is someone who, after his mission, always puts God above everything else in his life" Really made me think differently on everything, and all the habits I make here on the mission. Anyways, love you guys! Thanks for the awesome support and encouragement!

  1. Good morning, how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because through them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately, it is impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are very small countries with very few population, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this, I would ask you one small favor:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Paraguay? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Paraguay in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Calle Valencia, 39
    28903 Getafe (Madrid)

    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally, I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
