SEMANA 29!!!

Hola Todos!

Wow, it was such a good week! Mirian got baptized on Saturday and it was awesome! (haha) She's so funny. She kept on saying AMEN at random times during the service...like the people would be in the middle of their talk and she would just blurt out AMEN... It was really funny, but really it was a great baptism. We finally got a little bit of support from the ward. The Relief Society President even made the cake! It was a good day!

(haha) So, on Wednesday we had to go to the office to take this test that we have to take 'cause Hermana Bennett's in her training... It's always kind of a pain to go to the office 'cause we have to get up like an hour early and we lose a lot of time traveling on the bus. So, anyways, we leave and catch our bus which was Linea 51 and head out for the office... Here's the thing though, when we travel here, we just know that we're supposed to get off for this random landmark that the Zone Leaders tell us about! (haha) So, in this case, we were looking for the Iglesia Catolica! (Catholic Church) We start going and I asked the guy sitting next to me if the bus was going to pass by the church soon and he was like, "No, you have to get off on this street and go in another direction." (haha) I was SO confused, and the thing that made it really hard was Hermana Bennett has no clue 'cause she's only been to the offices like twice. It was all on me and I was just praying that I could remember and figure it out. So we got off at one of the main streets in Paraguay called Mariscal Lopez, and took this guy's directions and took another bus and started down Mariscal Lopez,... I've been to the office enough times to know that there's a McDonalds right around where we need to get off. Anyway, we're riding along and NOTHING looks familiar! (haha) FINALLY I realized we were going in the wrong direction, completely! (haha) So, we got off, crossed the street, took ANOTHER bus, and finally found the McDonalds two blocks away from where we originally got off... THREE buses and a WHOLE LOT of money later! But, it was fine, (haha) we were just lost for a few minutes...

ANYWAYS... (haha) the Familia Cesped is doing AWESOME!!! (haha) They came to church yesterday and brought on of our investigators with them! patricia for sure is going to get baptized soon. We are just waiting for her dad to be able to get the priesthood 'cause it'll just be SO much better for the entire family if he can baptize her. But, for sure, it's going to happen sometime in the next few weeks!

We are also working with a guy and his daughter, Teofido y Ruth, and they are AWESOME!!! Literally progressing so much! They don't know a whole lot about God, or religion, but are ready and willing to learn, so we're teaching them! They're great! Ruth prayed for the first time yesterday, and it was so cute! She's 12 and has never prayed in her life. She also came to church last week and yesterday, and Teofido for sure is coming this Sunday! They're for sure going to get baptized! They both have a date for the 11th of April!

Anyways, that's about it for this week! Life is good, and I love the mission! Thank you all for all of your support! I love you, have an awesome week!

Hermana Austin
