Transfers... And I'm still here in Posta Leiva YEAH

Her house in the middle of the jungle

Mate Dulce SO GOOD

This week was rad! We've got a few baptisms planned for this week, one of them is from that Familia Gonzalez, where the dad was inactive.. but he has been going to church and even gave a talk this last sunday. His son Manual is 9, and has been waiting for his dad to get worthy to baptise him. This Monday, he told us that he was worhty, and ready to baptise his son FINALLY haha Pretty cool story about how that all worked out: So this Monday, we finished P Day at 6, and headed out to a lesson with a new convert, who gave us liek 3 chicken breasts, pre-cooked and everything. We were so stoked to go eat them in our house, but then we remembered that there is a new rule about not being able to take food from members and eat it in our house, due to recent death of a missionary in Argentina from E Coli. So we weren't about to throw this chicken away.. I mean it was perfectly fine to eat! So we started thinking about who we could go give it to. We both felt like the Familia Gonzalez would need it the most, and even though they lived about an hour walk from were we were, we still just felt like they needed the extra food. We got there at about 8, jsut as they started eating thier dinner. They pulled up two chairs for us at their make-shift table of two barrels and a board, and evenly dished out portions to share with us, a meager meal of a little bit of rice and chicken. We then took out our chicken that had been given us, and they more than gladly accepted it! After dinner, the Dad told us how much that truly meant for them. He told us "Today, we didn't have money to buy dinner, so I prayed, and here you guys showed up with this food. And that's why we have decided to have Emanual's baptism this next Friday" Such a cool experience! Soooooo his baptismthis friday yeahhhhhh!!

The training is going great! We have been working a bunch, and the guy I am training is progressing a lot. He's awesome! Been learning a bit of portuguese lately, it's basically jsut spanish, just sounds super funny! haha But one of our investigators is Brazilian. There are quite a bit here, but most speak spanish!
We get a new mission president in July. The one we have right now is great, he is super strict, which is toughhhh! Like we can't play sports on P-Days. that KILLS me!! So i am praying it changes with the new president. Drank Mate Dulce, a paraguayan form of hot chocolate whish is SO good ahhhhhh It tastes like liquid almond joy. Made with milk, sugar and coconut. Did a service project, helping one of my converts clean her house. Be thankful for what you have! Your room is bigger than her house. Happy fathers day to the greatest dad in the world! Love you pops!
