SEMANA 30!!!

Hola Todos!

So this week was really good! (haha) Definitely the best part was that it FINALLY cooled off a little bit! The weather has started to cool off and it's the best! (haha) I actually put on a sweatshirt the other night when we got back... Haven't done that since I was in my training!  

But really, this week was great! Ruth came to church yesterday again and is going to get baptized on Sunday in between Conference, which is going to be SICK because there are going to be a TON of people there! She's literally such an awesome girl. She lives alone with her dad and 4 brothers, and basically is the mom. She's told us that she cleans the house and washes all of there clothes and cooks. Can you imagine being 12 years old and basically being the mom? But she's great! She's super excited about her baptism, and super excited about the church! I just love her so much and I want what's best for her.

Also little update on the Familia Cesped... They are still doing good! Sad thing is, it rained yesterday before church, so they didn't come! Ahh, the Paraguayos are so lazy when it comes to bad weather... (haha) It was like a drizzle, and we passed by yesterday morning, and they were like, ''It's cold. We can't come today." So they didn't come yesterday... Sad thing is, Hermano Cesped was going to have an interview with the bishop to get the priesthood, and now we're going to have to wait 2 WEEKS because of Conference... But it's okay. I just need to be a more patient missionary... (haha) I'm so excited for Patricia's baptism though. It's going to be such an awesome day!  

Also, I finally feel like we have the confidence of the members! There's one family in our ward that's literally AMAZING! They're named the Familia Rios, and they're just the coolest most chill family ever. We ate lunch with them on Saturday, and then went to a cita (appointment) with Hermano Rios, and he just really opened up to us and told us his families conversion story, and get this! So, his parents met with the missionaries and wanted to get baptized, but had to get married to live the law of chastity, right? (haha) So, his mom decides that she doesn't want to get baptized if she has to get married. The missionaries were going to have a wedding and a baptism, so they invited his parents and they decided to go. So, his family shows up at the wedding and it was THEIR WEDDING!!! (hahaha) Can you imagine? Those missionaries sure had some faith... But it all worked out, his parents got married and baptized that day!  

Lets see... (haha) a whole lot happened this week but I don't have much more time! I love you all...thank you so much for your letters and support. Have an awesome week!
