A Week of Growth.

Wow.  Sounds like this week was great for everyone! And thanks for more letters today! :) haha I love hearing about all the little things that happen in your lives because you are all so important to me. I keep praying for snow or rain or some type of moisture for the farm and the mountains. I will keep it up. I know that Heavenly Father listens to prayers and is just waiting for when the time is right.  Because we all know that nothing is on our time. 
Well one prayer of mine that was answered this week was Divisions! It was so amazing. Ive really been struggling with trying to teach Hermana Rivera the right way to do things so that she can grow and be prepared to teach by the end of her training. Ive been praying and praying and I got a call this week that we would have Divisions. I learned so stinkin much!! I am so grateful for Hermana Cortez and all that she taight me! The days after divisions we put our learning to the test and have so much more success! It was awesome! 
So im not sure if you all know but I've been having problems with my knee for about 2 months now and I finally went to the doctor. I found out that the cartlidge between my bones in my knee has gotten really thin and that my bones are rubbing together. Ive been doing Physical Therapy every day and so I havent seen much improvement but I know that itll get better soon! If you could all keep me in your prayers hat would be awesome! 
Its still super hot here!!! But this month and February are the hottest months and then it should get better! I cannot wait. I am so ready for some cold and to not be contantly sweating. Oh to see the day..I'm not sure if thats a phrase in English..I cant quite remember...
Okay. Theres a Mormon Message that I want you all to look up and watch! Its so awesome! Its called An Extraordinary Gift! I love it!
I love you all so much and pray for you all every day. Keep the Lords work rolling. There are tons of people that need your help. :) Love you all THIS much and more!

5 Months!!

I cant believe that its been 5 months! Well actually counting the weeks, 5.5 months. But who's counting?? not me! haha well this week weather wise was pretty nice! We had one day where it was actually kinda cold! It was nuts! But today its right back to normal. Tons of people are sick here cuz of the dramatic weather changes and the water is real bad right now! But luckily we have filtered water so I'm still as healthy as can be! I am so glad that we are half way done with the hottest month in the whole year here! Its weird to think that all of you are suffering in the cold and me in the heat! Enjoy it! Enjoy the heating as well cuz no one has that here! And they only have air conditioning in one room in their houses! The others are like ovens all day long! Man did I take home for granted.
This week missionary wise was better than the week before. This area that I'm in is one of the hardest in all of the mission because its one of the richest and we all know that the rich are not the humble ones! haha but the aork is still mving along! Hermana Rivera is still doing as great as ever! WE are getting to know each other more and more every day and she is so awesome! Her being catholic before and a convert works wonders! It is so diferent than with 2 blondes! haha
News of the week!! I finally got a camera!!!! POR FIN!!! (finally) I have taken a few pictures and I will try to send some today! :) Youre all very welcome! haha it was so hard to find! And I got the last one that was on a Christmas sale! Lucky me!
Something that Ive really realized in the week is the love that Heavenly Father has for us! We are His children and everything that He has given us is for our benefit! Like the Plan of Salvation, Families, homes, the Gospel, a Prophet. I love Him so much and it is so awesome being able to feel the love that He has for me and for all fo the poeople here!
I love you all so much and hope to recieve more letters next week......hint hint.....but I still love you tons! :) Enjoy every moment of every day in the things that matter most!

Feliz Ano Nuevo!!

Happy 2014!! I feel like I haven't talked to you since last year!! haha ;) I know that this year is gonna be one filled with happiness and blessings. I am very grateful that I will be spending the whole year in Paraguay! Its crazy! Time is just flying and I cant believe I've already been gone for 5 months! Nuts!! I hope you all have made goals for this year cuz I know that its gonna be a good one! :)
Well this week at first was a hard as the week before, but now that all the festivities are over, its tons better!! Its crazy how much of a deference it makes! During Christmas and New years we seriously had NO investigators and now we have 4! (ones that are actually progressing) its crazy. And I like it a lot better! I don't have much to say for this week! I am excited for this next week when the whole week can be awesome! 
My companion is still doing great! We get along better each and every day. 
She is already a great teacher so that makes things really nice. Shes not even struggling with being sad and its mind boggling to me! haha But she is great and helping me with Spanish a ton!! I am very grateful for that! 
I am going to buy a camera today and so I will be able to send you guys more pictures!! Finally! I'm sorry, i have really slacked on the picture thing!
Well I love you all so much! Have an amazing year and rely on the Lord in all! 
Con mucho amor
