Two funerals and a baby
Wingapo! Just throwing in some daily Algonquin at you all. Not that they speak Algonquin
here... But still. Actually they are a lot of people that speak Guarani (the old language of the
Paraguay area) and Quechua (the old language of the Bolivia/Peru area). Poatu waope? I think
that means Let's go to church.
Anywho, I just got really sidetracked... Returning to the letter...
Hello! So Today is the big day! I killed my second elder! It was really sad this time, I really
learned a lot from Elder Lawyer from these short two weeks that we had together. He's literally
one of the nicest, purest people I know. We did a lot of good work his last week to make sure
that he died well. We were even blessed with some true miracles! WE HAD AN INVESTIGATOR
AT CHURCH! It is the grandchild of our recent convert, Felicia. And above that, this Felicia also
BROUGHT A FRIEND TO CHURCH! Wooohooo! We didn't have a lot of time to talk with her,
but we are going to stop by tomorrow so pray that it all goes well. According to Felicia, her
friend really liked the meetings, so let's all hope and pray that she is open and ready to hear
the restored Gospel=) We also found a really great lady Sunday that we taught yesterday that
is really interested! I love these moments in missionary work when things begin to fall into
place. This will all be really helpful too, because I will need all the help I can get to raise my
That's right. I am pregnant.
I have been called to be a trainer! Eeeeek. I am so excited. I am going to have so much fun. I
also have no idea how to do this, but luckily they gave me a little book and brochure on how
to be a good trainer, so I guess I'm prepared. =) But in all seriousness, I am really looking
to this opportunity to work on being a more Christlike servant. This also gives me a
opportunity to work my charity and humility! I get to go meet him in about an hour.
In the meantime, I am just chilling with Elder Dote, from Chile, who is also wating to meet his
hijo. Did I mention that I love Chileans?. Yeah, like 50 times. We barely know each other but
now after spending all of pday together we are basically best friends. And he doesn't like
soccer. And he likes to sing. That is a combination that is hard to find down here. We went to
Porto de Frutos because we had nothing better to do today, and went to a Pizza Libre, which is
a all-you-can-eat pizza place. So yeah. Just some pday fun for you. I'll send pics... maybe. if I
Yep. found out.
But that's it for this week! Send me some prayers to help out with this whole training thing!
I love you all and will see you all soon enough!
Also shout out to big brother Holden for returning with honor from his mission. Job well done!
Love you all,
