Anyways! Sorry fir such a short letter.... 

Love you guys!

Hermana Breon

Letter to Mom...
well i went to the doctor and the doctor said that everthing was better.... but its wierd becasue the x ray looks worse than my first one. so me and hermana cowley are just going with it. i did immigrations today and so i was at the office and saw hermana wilson and told her about my toe and the x ray and she was like hummm.... i dont think they believe him. the doctor said that its gonna hurt to walk for at least a year. so ya..... im not sure about that but what ever. TELL AUNT JUDY AND UNCLE WAYNE THANK YOU!!!!! I got the card for thanksgiving and i got the package too!!!! It was filled with a huge bag of twix and redvines!!!!!!!!!!!! and a cute ornament!! and say that the spanish on the cards were prefect! It took exactly 6 weeks to get here.

Well today me and hermana cowley ironered out some things haha.... yesterday she like got really angry at a member at church and kinda baja la caña at him.... so he cried (he has asburgers) anyway... she knows that but it was becasue he feels bad about rejecting the gosple in the past and so he goes on and on. anyways i was like that was so not cool. but ya... its just funny i look at her and know exactly how she is feeling because i was a leader at 20 and felt all that responsibility. and so ya.. but i think everything is gonna be ok now. 

the local missionaries are leaving thissunday so we get to be in the house for 2 weeks! yay! haha!
i seriously took pictures and stuff to send and i brought all the stuff except for the cord to attach my camera.... sorry.... haha and the hermana who doesnmt like americans is ok with us now so ya... wierd... they are begging us to go home haha i dont think they will ever be missionaries haha... :/ 

OH so set up skype on my computer and make sure it works.... because im gonna see if i can use google plus but if i cant im using skype to call home on christmas. so SET UP SKYPE! im gonna be using hermana cowleys skype. on christmas make sure that the account doesnt have any blocks on it so that i can find you quickly and be able to call. i have 1 hour to call and im about 4 hours ahead? next week i will tell you the time but i need you to tell me what email and  how to find oyu. 

well ya... so ive been in my apartment. i was gonna send you pic but i forgot my cord.... sorry.... i know i know..... 
 this week we have a christmas activity in zone 10 so we are going to leave wed at 630 in the morning :D and be there like all day! so ya... hahaha

Semana 11: Bambi is in Paraguay...well was...

So to start off my spanish is a TON better! WOOHOO!!!!! Ive been speaking spanish all the time in my apartment and its like gotten a million times better!!

So this week we had verificaciones where we go and the new missionaries and the trainers go and take a test to see if we are being trained right and if we have any problems with our trainers. I of course didnt have any because Hermana Cowley is awesome! haha! Anyways the president said that anywhere we go we have to take a taxi which is kinda of expensive but anyways we called our go to taxi man , José, and he drove us to Asunción! When we go to the office and the elders that were in my group from the CCM were there! i got out of the car and José grabbed my crutches and the elders were like what happened? haha! So  told them what was going on and they were like what? haha! Ya... anyways, we were walking to the cultural hall in the capilla and my wooden crtuches slipped! haha! they used to have rubber on the bottom but they came off when ive been going to different places like the capolla and stuff. Anyways durring the meeting, one of the hermanas from a different area turned to me and was like we have actual crutches in our apaqrtment! do you want them? I was like YES! haha! so as we were walking out of the capolla after the meeting president Wilson was walking in front of me and then turned around to say something and right then both of my crutches slipped out from under me and i almost fell haha! He was like Woah! you need new ones! haha! we had to wait in the offices for the taxi they called for us and as we were all sitting there, Hermana Wilson was sitting in front of us and President was off to the side. I was like i need ot make a joke cause this is so funny how my crutches keep slipping. And then right there i was like... Im Bambi! haha So I turned to Hermana Wilson and said ¿Usted sabe Bambi? she was like Sí. And i said Yo siento como Bambi. President and Hermana Wilson were laughing fo a while over that haha! 
Anyways! I now have brand new (not really) crutches!!!!! haha!

So there really wasnt much else this week but i hope there will be more and that i can speak PERFECT spanish this week! (probably not but hey i keep praying!) haha!
Anyways ya things are boring here.... but i will take pics because on wednesday we have transfers so there will be pics of my district! and my companions tambien. my spanish is really good... not perfect but ya! I can now mostly understand what the president says and so thats good now! haha! Hermana Cowley said that she thinks they are really impressed with me. they didnt say that but thats tthe vibe shes been getting! haha!
Funny thing... so when we go grocery shopping taylor swifts bad blood song comes on and i have to resist dancing and singing... haha!
I told sierra Bell about my toe and she laughed and was like ya i left my bella-like qualities at home and you brought them to paraguay! haha! ya i know.... haha
It was raining all weekend.. im in an area where it doesnt flood.... 
There is a dog that lives accross the street and i have named him charlie.... haha! hes funny to watch... ya i know
I made the peach cobbler and EVERYBODY loved it! haha! 
Oh and keep sending me news! Hermana Cowley and me LOVE IT!!!! we crave it! haha!
oh and i showed my companions the way of the "poor mans pizza"... its a hit!...we eat it every week here! haha! except we make it into a sandwich por que our oven burns it everytime haha! anyways.. yup! LOVE YOU!!! oh and in the next pacakge.. i need more cotton socks for flats... like with the rubber on the back and in black and skin color! 

Love you guys!!!!!

Semana 10: IM STAYING!!!!!

So alot has happened this week! So on tuesday we were at the district meeting when we got a call from Hermana Wilson asking if we were at our apartment. We said we werent and they said that they would come by. Well they never did! We were both freaking out because we totally thought that I was going home! So the next day we got a call from the President ( which we had never had before) and he asked if we were going to be arround that day because he was going to bring by another bunk bed. We asked why and he said that they were gonna give us 2 local missionaries to help us out till my toe heals. SO! he and his daughter came and helped set up the bed and on friday they came! They are super nice! So what me and one of the hermanas do is look in the area book and plan out the day for hermana cowley and her companion for the day and then we switch companions the next day! so i have been talking spanish ALOT! haha! one of them wants to learn english so i have been helping her learn english and she is helpng me with spanish! Just yesterday Hermana Cowley said that my spanish has inproved a ton! like im starting to talk like the locals haha! im now teaching her how to pronounce words haha!
Oh and im officially not in training right now.... im training! ya..... im traingin the new local missionaries. So technically im now a trainer too... till my toe is healed and then im in training again. So ya thats what the president said! haha! He was like you are now a trainer. you need ot train these new hermanas..... ya.... only after 5 weeks! CRAZY!!!!! 

Anyways ive just been in the house studying and organizing the carpeta de area all week!

Funny thing.... So today when we were on the colectivo (bus) to go to the store, there were these two men singing. one was rapping and the other was playing the guitar. The guy that was rapping was singing about me and my companions... not anything bad just like 'hey theres that girl with the crutches' blah blah blah haha! So now i can say i had part of a spanish rap song sung about me! haha! In paraguay! haha!

ya so for right now President came and got my x ray  and is going to give it to another doctor to look at it because hes not happy with how this doctor is handling things.. i still have a tounge presser as a splint and so President said he is going to try and find me a boot but those are difficult to find in south america and ver expensive! so were the multeas! anyways.... when he came he said that he just knew that i didnt want to go home and so he is doing the local missionaries thing. which is like unheard of. normally i would definately be sent home for this and he said that too. So ya im very happpy! ive litterally been sitting on my butt all day!!! so impretty sure that my weight that ive lost is coming back! Its totally freaky because one of the hermanas acts and talks like tanya... even loves to cook like tanya.... its freaking me out a little.

Anyways... have fun! Super grateful i get to stay here! 

Love you guys!!!

Semana 9: Muletas not Maletas

So this week was a boring week.... ya i know.... how can you have those when you are on a mission? Well when you break your toe you can... haha! So this week we sat in the house all day almost every day.... ya.... 
BUT we went to a Zone Conference with like 7 Zones on tuesday so that was super fun! It was 7 hours long but they fed us LUNCH!!!!! So it made up for the long meeting haha but it was really good! After the meeting my toe was KILLING me so we decided to stay off of it on wednesday so it was a day full of studies! Yay! haha! 
On thursday we had a doctors apointment in Asuncion again. We went there and the doctor was like hey so you know how i said 4 weeks... ya.... its gonna be 8-12 weeks. I gave him this shocked look and he like looked at me and rolled his eyes and looked away.. he wanted to laugh! haha! That man is so funny! haha! Kinda weird but so funny! haha! when he called my name to go into his room he said... breon.. and then looked at me and i gave him this huge smile hahaha! He also prescribed me paciencia... ( i cant spell that word in english any more... haha!)  And i also got more tounge pressers for my toe hahah! I just love Paraguay! haha! SO YA! Came home and was really kinda dicouraged because our area is gonna die.... die meaning all of our investigators are gonna go away. BUT Something good happened yesterday! Hermana Arce (obospos esposa) told us that i can stay at her house and hermana cowley can take a member with her and go and teach people! SO my job will be to gain the trust of the members, learn spanish and she gets  to teach peple! WOOHOOO!!! im really sad i wont be teaching investigators but i get to practice witht the members! 

Anyways... I look back at my mission so far (9 weeks) and go wow this is a really different mission experience than most people haha! I told Hermana Cowley that these things happen to me all the time and welcome to the ride haha! She thought that was funny! haha! Well this week is my 5th week in paraguay! CRAZY RIGHT?!?!?!! haha

OH! and they rarely sell crutches (muletas) and so today the elders are bringing me my freshely carved wooden crutches!!! Ya! a carpenter that lives under the elders aparment said that he would make them this weeked! haha! 
It was funny... so we called Elder Dyer (our DL) and was like we need crutches. But the word crutches is similar to the word for suitcases. (Maletas) Entonces, he was like where are you guys going? hahaha! It was really funny haha 

Well love you guys all! 

Thats funny about the garage door opener... i had a feeliing last night to pray for you specifically... that you would be ok and that everyhting would work out.... weird... and i thought that was wierd buit i did it anyways.... ya...

Pleese tell me news!!!! im dying here! im so glad that you did! I told dad about my toe so ask him... Its a strong possibility im going home.. but witht his presdient he doesnt send anybody home so who knows!!! haha! but my toe is getting really bad everyday which blows our minds becasue i am literaly sitting down all day! but today when we were walking to the ciber my toe is hurting super bad... so we are very concerned.  are you recording the hallmark stuff? haha! Im sure dad is dying haha! OH! did you send the package? :) haha!

¡HOLA Familia and Amigos!

Wow this week was very interesting.....
So last monday after i wrote my letter we went to the doctor to see about my toe..... well....its...... BROKEN!!!!!!! haha! ya the first broken bone i ever get in my life is on my mission... haha so for 4 weeks i cant walk anywhere without a crutch and thats if i absolutely have to walk. So we told the President and he said that they are gonna keep me in this area but we dont know how long that is gonna last because just to go to church its over a mile walk there and then a mile back. haha so ya... me and hermana Cowley think we are gonna be the first hermanas in the oficinas haha! but for right now we just are teaching 3 people... OH YA WE GOT 2 NEW INVESTIGATORS!!!!!!!! WOOOOHOOO! haha! They are super nice and are interested in the church so im pretty excited about them. :) We still are teaching that guy but he lives super far away and this week i got a really bad head cold. So we had to cancel his appointment because i felt like death haha but now im totally fine! We actuallly use my toe more than we shoudl cause i go crazy and we leave and walk kinda alot... Well its Paraguay.... you have to walk everywhere. anyways... I fell bad for my companion becasue she has to plan around my toe... ya..
Well this week we had intercambios with the hermana leaders. So they came to my apartment and i was supposed to go woth one and my companion was going to stay in our area and lead the hermana around to meet with people. Well they came and found out about my toe so i ended up staying in my apt for 8 hours and an hermana leader stayed with me. So i got to practice my spanish for 8 hours! haha!
Yesterday we went to the bishops house for lunch and the bishop and his wife were tasing me about my spanish. I dont really talk as much because i feel like i cant really contribute to the conversation haha. Well Hma Arce turned to me and said tell me something except she used some words i didnt know haha So it was kinda funny! haha The ward is so nice haha! Im known now in the ward as the smily missionary haha. They told hma Cowley when i was stuck in the apt, that they were asking why i smile so much hahha! 
OH before i forget! We had to go to the oficinas for fingerprinting for our visas for paraguay. Well when i got there the whole group that i came with was there! They were like HERMANA BREON!!!!!! haha! I miss them sometimes! haha it was cool to see them! I actually get to see them tomorrow becasue we have a huge multi zone zone conference! haha

Semana 8: It's Allll Good!!!

So this week was so much better! Im starting to get used to paraguay and im doing good!

We are having a really hard time in this area. My trainer had a companion before who was really sick so they were in their apt most of the time so we really have nobody to teach... Kind of like we are white washing the area. So its was really hard. We have (had)1 investigator and she was relly interested in the church but then has not gone to church and is busy all the time and so we have not been able to meet with her at all. So we were super discourgged. But just on saturday we had a break through. There is this man who went up to the Elders who are in our area and asked if he could meet with them. Well fortunately (unfortunately for them) he lives in out area. But the only thing is is that he lives alone and we have to teach with another woman when we teach him. So we were begging the members and nobody could come. So we went to his house to tell him that we needed to set up a different time to come (and we explained what the rule was) and he was like thats ok! And then asked us a few questions. Hermana Cowley started to explain baptism and a little bit about the LDM and he was super interested! Like super! But while she was explained baptism and stuff I got this strong feeling to say something that she didnt mention. So i said it in perfect spanish(which me saying that right away is very weird) and he turned to me and said "SI!!" and said thats exactly what i believe in and then ran inside to grab his LDM. After when we left, I felt like a missionary! I havent felt that in a long time... ok since the CCM. I feel like he is so ready! YAY!!! 
BUT it didnt count as a lesson cause we didnt have a woman and we didnt pray so ya.... BUT IT WAS SO COOL!!!!!! 

WE also had a hallowwen party at the ward which was funny. They went aall out for it! They dont have anything like halloween here so they did what they saw on the internet and we made it fun! They carved watermellon and instead of dougnuts on a string it was pinnaple! haha! It was awesome! 


Love you guys lots and hope everthing is awesome!

 Hermana Breon

Note to Mom: 
Everything is better I got an xray done and now we are going to see the results today. It doesnt look broken so who knows. the food is so bad here that everybdy has stomach problems which i now have but esta bien!!! 
OH! So i know you would love this. The Presidente and Hermana Wilson came to our aptment a few days ago to give us a paper for something. ANYWAYS they were saying that they have a friend in URguay that YOU contacted and were talking to and thier friend didnt know that they were mission president here and so they emailed them and asked. Pres and Hma were like ya how did you find out and they siad YOU told them. MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY?!?!?!?!!? they thought it was funny and kinda cool. So now they know what you look like and they said hugs and kisses from you. ya. 

I dont know for christmaas.. OH! pictures of my friends.... ummmm something American... and whatever you want! Oh! probably some viatimns. My favorite candy.. they dont have lots of candy here..... just halls throght drops. They eat them like candy here.

Paraguay! Semana 7

Wow! Im here! This is seriously so crazy! I was so sad to leave the CCM! 
Well we got here to Paraguay and it was so hot! haha! It reminded me of Arizona so much! just think AZ heat and humidity like you would in the rain forest! YUP! But i wasnt complaining about it too bad haha! There were 4 Latina hermanas with us and they were complaining about how hot it was haha! I was kinda used to it cause of AZ haha! ANywho! The President and Hermana Wilson are super nice! I love them so much! Suprisingly in the interview with the President I understood everything beside one thing! I was very impressed with my spanish knowledge hahaha! Anyways they fed us this HUGE Alumerzo and it was so good! for the first day we were with the APs and the oficina missionaries and the President and Hermana Wilson. Only 2 were american so all of us english speakers got to talk to them and ask what we were going to expect. After that they let the hermanas sleep for 3 HOURS!!! It was amazing especially because we had been up since 3 that morning! Then after cena they took the hermanas to the hotel for the night! 
The next day we got our trainers. My trainer is Hermana Cowley. She is from Pleasent Grove Utah and is super nice. She has only been in Paraguay for 7 months. My area is Villa Anita. Its about 1 hour south from  the mission home. They put us all in taxis and we all went our seperate ways. So that was sad. 

But here the ward is very nice. There is 100 members technically but there is only 30 who come to church so ya. In our ward, we share it with the district leader and his companion. 

There really hasnt been much going on because my toe has gotten worse so we went to the hospital and the doctor thinks its sprained (Which we told hermana Wilson and she thinks its broken becasue its been almost 3 week and it still hurts.) Anyways i have an appointment on friday to see if it has gotten better. 

ANYWAYS! Paraguay is pretty different and i mean REALLY different from the US and Argentina. Kinda have culture shock. haha! OH and there is a ton of jungle! Its crazy!!!!!!


Love you all lots!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last Week in the CCM...Semana 5

So this week was crazy! It flew by soooooo fast! So you know how i said that i thought that my toe was broken? well thankfully its not! The area doctor came and he looked at it and it said that it was super sprained. So I asked him if i could go to proselestismo on sat and he was like ok if your foot feels ok! So I was like praying and praying cause i really wanted to go!
 Well Saturday rolled around and i was determined to go. I was limping around the CCM with a man tennis shoe on (it was bright flourecent orange and on my other foot was my normal missionary shoe so it looked funny) but my companions were like no Hermana Breon dont go! you should rest! But i really didnt want to stay at the CCM for 5 HOURS and do nothing but study Spanish when i could be out in Buenos Aires proselighting. So i went. I was in the Buenos Aries este area with all the american districts. Us sisters were right next to an area where their district leader was located. So we walked around and NOBODY was out! After 2 hours of doing nothing, my foot was serioulsy killing me. So I reluctantly went to a local business and called their DL so that way we could go back to the CCM. My foot was hurting so bad. So he happened to be a a teacher that works here home, Hermano Gómez. He isnt married so he lives with his mom (thats what they do here, they live with their parents till they get married.) Anyways so he drove over with his mom and picked us up. He asked if my companions wanted to stay and proseletie or come with me. They came with me. At first i wanted them to stay but im glad they came because we went to his house and were there for 3 hours! haha! I met some of his family, learned that he sleeps light and actually learned alot about him! hahahaha! His mom was saying all this stuff and he was like MOM! hahaha! I understodd basically everything that she was saying! It was crazy! she was talking faster and i knew everything! He really didnt traslate so i felt bad for my companions who were sitting there kinda lost. She asked how long we had been in the CCM and I told her for about 5 weeks and they said about 3 and she was like OH! and said to me thats why you understand everything i am saying and responding back haha! After talking for a while she wanted to sing a Hymn and so we did! Im serious! The Spririt was sooooooooooooooo strong! I was like you cant end on that and then not give a lesson! So i asked if we could and we gave a lession on faith. I haveent felt the spirit so strong then in that moment. I was bearing my testimony and i dont even remember what i said! All I remember is me spiting out words that was not mine. My companions testified and it seriously was the BEST lesson ever! I almost cried, she cried, Hmo Gómez almost cried..... like awesome!!!!!! She shared her testimony and WOW! I just cant describe it...... It was awesome! My goal is for every lesson to be THAT good! 
After that we gave her huge hugs cause we had to go back but I love that lady sooooooo much! I felt God´s love for her and im so sad i will never see her again! 
After that we rode the bus back to the CCM with Hmo Gómez and picked up the other missionaries. So once again I had an unusual Prosesletismo! haha! My district was thinks that im being prepared for something awesome in the mission. They were like there is no way you are having these different experiences than everybody else if it wasnt for a reason!
Im gonna miss Argentina SOOOOOOOOO much!!!! I wish i was serving the people here but i know im needed elsewhere.

Well back to my toe..... 
Its ok now and mom.... the spider bite was just a bite... its gone now haha! Im wearing a normal shoe haha i just still have my toe wrapped up but i think everything is gonna be ok! 

OH another sppriritual thing... So in IPs we had one with Hmo. Gómez and everytime we have it i feel like the spirit is not there and after proseletismo, i know it can be powerful and i wanted that for this lesson bad. We were in comp study and it just wasnt feleling right. My companions agreed and we changed it. We went in and asked him to bear his testimony and then we knew where to go. Hermana Lovall gave this awesome paragraph in the folleto and it just was like BOOM sprirt is there! Then Hermana Hunsaker bore her testimony and BOOM BOOM! Powerfull and then I bore mine and I felt like i was on fire! It was just another awesome lesson! Im so grateful for the Spririt helping us testify even if it is a pretend lesson. Hmo Gómez was like almost crying! So i knew he felt it too. SOOOO AWESOME!

Last night was the best storm ever! It rained like crazy, thunder and lightnig! Well the rain came in our window and soaked our carpet! we had to hurry and dry it. After that we went downstairs because we are singing with my district for a special musical number on sunday. Us hermanas walked in and we saw that a window was opened and rain was flooding in! So we ran and got towels and tried to clean it up as best as we could... the wallpaper was ruined but we grabbed a Brazillian Elder and told him what happened and he ran an made sure all the windows were closed. Crisis averted.... hahaha!

Well this will be the last letter for a while because i will miss the Pday for my mission so ya.  Next week I will be in Paraguay!!!! Its totally crazy to think about! Im gonna miss Argentina but im so excited to go to Paraguay! 
The people who are going with me to Paraguay are my district and 3 latinas. Thats it haha!

Living the dream... and breaking bones in the process..... Semana 4

So this week was a wierd week....
As you read in the heading, i think i broke my toe.... It hurts like crazy, bump in a wierd place where there is not supposed to be a bump.... so i dont know how im gonna do proseletismo.... PERO Toda Bien!! haha I was playing soccor before i wrote just now and i kicked my DLs foot and he was kicking at the same time and i ended up with a broken toe.... so im icing it and so ya!! hahaha 

This last weekend was conference and it was awesome! we watched it in english and we were all spiritually lifted! haha! We are so sad about President Monson! We love him so much! Him stuggling was killing us! we talked about it after ad were saying that we were all at on the edge of our seats wanting to jump through the TV and help him! Well it was a really good talk!

The rest of the conference was really good! We like want all the talks now! 

The other part of the week was kinda hard! for the first time (in one of the teaching parts of class where we go and teach the teachers who act like they are people from their missions), I was just not feeling the spirit! It was so frusterating!  Well I was talking to my DL and my teacher and she told me a cool way how to study and the next time i went in i was on FIRE! It was a pretty good lesson!

Anywho!.... My companions are awesome and we are doing good here! We just got two new roommates! They are both Latina so we will now be speaking alot more spanish! Yesterday I said a word that i thought was spanish and it wasnt.... My teacher was like thats portugese... sooooooo ya.... learning a little bit of portugese and alot of spanish!


OH! the power went out 5 times the other night! ITs a common occurance here i guess! Its happened before but before it was daytime.... this time it was night.... little scarier! haha!
Oh well! livin the dream in Argentina!
