Shout Hooray (May 18, 2015)

A good, fast week in Ka'aguy Rory

We've got someone who (absolutely) is going to get baptized this week. He had his interview, is like 35 years old, and is a professional chef who cooks for the business of the American couples in the Ward. He's going to be baptized this saturday, and confirmed on sunday. His name is Oscar Franco, and he's a super cool dude. We've been working really hard, and it payed off super well in the end this last week. Finally. Look if this one falls I don't even know what to say hahaha.

I really hope I don't get super fat in this area because we eat a ton of food and don't walk very much. I had to tell my comp to stop buying Lomito Arabe because honestly I could eat one every day for the rest of my mission if I wanted to.  They're delicious, but sadly not nutritious. There's also Chinese food in my area. It's been a long, long time since I've had food that's even relatively asian-y.

We also had Zone Traning this week (I also finally found out what it's called in English- zone training). I got to meet the sisters in my district. They're nice (definitely different from the Elders). One of them goes home this transfer, so I'll get to experience first hand what it looks like when a sister missionary gets super trunky. It'll be a growing experience for me to get to help them do things like drop investigators that don't progress and say "no". To mention a few of the problems I'm seeing right off the bat. They really actually seem like great missionaries, and are decimating as far as lesson numbers go. I've heard good things about the Hermanas in my district.

this new area keeps on coming with new cool stuff and differences, and I'm always excited to learn new things.

Also, I turn 19 this week. Woohoo happy birthday to me!

Well it looks like that's it for Paraguarì-

 Our investigators dropped out at the last second before getting baptized. It's a little bit more complicated than that, but they didn't get baptized, and I'm about 99% sure I'm out of here. Yesterday we went and visited some of the families I've worked with, and some converts. I've really enjoyed this area, and although I haven't had as much "success" in terms of millions or thousands baptized, I've learned a ton and changed a lot. I'm a bit cleaner and more organized, at least. XD 

Let's just say there was a huge thunderstorm and the attendance dropped from 90 to 15 in the sacrament meeting this week.

We had a lot of fun, and living with Elder Abarza from Argentina for the last 4 months has been super cool. He's a great Elder, along with all of the other Elders that have been here during my time. I loved the branch, and they've always been super cool and helpful, and they keep up a really good Facebook page, which I'm sure will be missed by a few of you that kept up on it. They always made sure to make fun of us whenever our Moms commented on their wall. Very fun. I really did appreciate getting to hear a comment from my mom during the week. That's always nice. 

Really the mission is awesome. Easily the best thing I've ever done, and it's something that I can already tell is going to help me out a ton in the future. Soon I'm off to another place, and I'm ready for whatever the Lord has in store for me.
