Bautismo!!!!!! Oh ya.. and Feliz Pascua!

So bueno this week was awesome!!!  as you all know we had a baptism!!!!!! Carmen was baptised!!!! woot woot!!! it was so awesome and full of the spirit! So we had a stressfull week.. so in paraguay this whole last week was Santa Semana. And that means that they have certain traditions that they do. So her interiew was set for wed. and so we went and guess what.... Chipa and rain killed the interview. we were like what?????? ya it was like crazy because wednesday is chipa day where all they eat is chipa. haha! So ya.. we moved the interview for the next day and she still couldn't come because it was raining a ton. So we were stressed and moved the interview to just hours before the baptism. SHE CAME!!! haha!!! i was praying so hard for a miracle that she could come and she did!! SO we had an awesome baptism and a lot of people came! And then on Sunday she was confirmed! OH another cool thing was that her daughter came with her family. They have been inactive for a long time and she came and translated the whole thing for her mom! And the confirmation! The whole ward is super happy becasue they have been trying with her for so long to come because they all talk to her and love her to death! It was so awesome! 

So ya!!! I want to send pics.. but the computer is being dumb so im gonna keep trying but ya!!!!! It was so cool!!! 

Anyways Happy Easter!!!! We  spent easter with Carmen and the whole family! so it was awesome!!

I don't think that's gonna happen at all! haha but who knows! They all think Hermana Salgado is gonna leave  :( but ya...

There was a thing that happened in brussles?! HUH? I don't hear anything about the outside world.... Paraguay is so tranquilo! like nothing happens here not like other places in the world right now! Like its so like nothing haha!

Anyways!!! I cant wait for the package!!! :) :) haha!  
Chipa...cheese bread.
Sopa Paraguay...its kind of like corn bread.
My first baptism! This is Carmen!
Carmen and "Gallo"...Carmen thought his hair looked like a rooster, so she nicknamed him "Gallo". He is one of the members in the ward.

Carmen's inactive daughter and family came to the Baptism. Her daughter interpreted the Baptism.

So this week was pretty awesome again! We had a 70 come... Elder Juan Ura. He and his wife spoke to us and it was pretty  cool! There was 10 zones there! It was huge!!!! hahaha! I got to see a ton of people and my old comps!! Its was super exciting haha! 

So this week we were preparing Carmen to be baptised this friday! She needed to asist (go to church) one more time and then she could be baptised. So we woke up yesterday and it was foggy a ful! We were like oh no she's not gonna come.... so we called and sure enough she was like no the weather! (the thing about paraguayans.... they dont come to church when it looks like bad weather... they are just scared) so ya.... we were freaking out! So we called a taxi and went to her house and she came!!! haha! It was so funny... so there is this guy in our ward who is an ex misionary and he is always helping us with amisidad with our investigators. So he came up and she was like you look like a rooster... Because his hair is cut super short on the sides and longer on top. We laughed so hard haha! He was like hey tell her that I like my hair like this and I don't look like a rooster hahahaha! It was super funny. But after she was like he can baptise me. So he is exctied to do it! haha! Gallo baptising her.  haha! 

So yup that has been my week! Gettin ready for the baptism! This week too! Its crazy how much you have to plan for the baptism! haha!

Hermana Breon

Oh I got told that my last name is chuchi hahaha! and I look like Angelina Jolie... baha! 

To Mom:
iI still haven't gotten the package.... probably the week of conference.. next week. Esta bien!  I'm scared to hook up my USB because the computers here act funny. So me and Hermana Salgado are scared that there is a virus and stuff so I don't send any sometimes. I'm gonna try today, but no sé...  

So far i only have one baptism but ya! Missionaries are like awwwww your first!! I'm like ya I'm not a kid, haha but ya I'm  pretty excited! We are not gonna have a huge turn out because everybody is going to the compaña for Easter so ya..they're  like sorry but I can't. We only have one Bishopric member that said he might be there but he's not making any promises. so ya.... I was like really! haha! Paraguayo's... ya it's gonna be fun! She is so excited to be baptized! She's like so ready! The whole ward is shocked. For 10 years they have been trying and when they had finally givien up she's getting baptized! haha! So ya! She's like I am, but not my daughters. haha Her daughters are like 6! haha We were like ya they can't. haha
Oh and you know what's funny? Everybody loves my name and thinks its so cool in this area. haha! I'm like its just french. haha But ya haha! I have the Kristen Stewart thing following me and Angelina Jolie following me too. haha I'm like I don't have the lips...but ya!
And cambios are next week! AHHH! I think I'm staying, but the mish sent out an email saying that there's gonna be a ton of changes,  so ya who knows!
Oh and its so hard when people play popular songs that I loved at home and can't listen to anymore...on the streets! It takes everything in me not to dance haha!  Or sing!

Otro Semana en la FLORESTA!!!

So wow our investigator is like gold! She is taking everything that we tell her and says yup! i believe it! WHAT!!! Ya.. she is so excited to be baptized and she CAME TO CHURCH!!!! We were soooo happy! the ward is soo helpful! Everybody is excited for this baptism! Its funny.. when your investigator is like this you the missionary start to doubt them really having this testimony that they do because its so easy to teach her! But she is ready! Its a miracle! Practically the whole family is members so she has heard this for a really long time...missionaries have taught her for 10 years and she is now ready! She has her interview and baptism next week! We are trying to get all the lessons done and make sure that she understands it! I just can't believe it!  We had intercambios with the hermana liders and i was leading my area with one of them and my comp was in the hermana liders area with the other. So that day we went to my investigators daughters house. She is married and her sister in law was there becasue she goes to school in Villa Elisa but lives in San Lorenzo but her family is thinking about moving to Villa Elisa (my area) so hermana jarman talked to her and we put her with a baptism date! And she is super excited also! So we are like gonna baptise the whole family practically haha! Its been pretty awesome! Her name is Venus and if she asisted in San Lorenzo she can be baptised the SAME DAY as Carmen! How cool would that be!!!! So ya! 

 We also were in the hopsital this week... I feel like i live there... haha and my hand..... IS FINE!!! Just a muscle bruise! yay!! My comp still is sick... I'm wondering if she's gonna have bronchitis cause her cough is super bad... so ojala no! haha! I cant believe that after this week i only have one more week of this cambio! crazy! We be doing good here! Now we are scared that there is gonna be a whitewash next cambio. Cause this area was dead, but now its picking up! 

Some of you have asked what my area is like and its city'ite! like chuchi haha! I dont have any forest, not many rocks in the roads, stores and most importantly.. ICE CREAM STORES!!! haha! Our apartment is a penthouse practically haha! You can go on the roof and see for miles of paraguay! I love this area! at this one members home if you go on the roof you can see the rio paraguay! and a part of argentina! ya! crazy! So we are gonna do that and take pics! haha 

I also hit my 6 months!!!!! on the 10th!!! so i officially have 1 year left! crazy!!! 

WELL Love you guys lots!

Oh está todo bien

Wow!! its been two weeks since I've been in the new area!  and it was a crazy week!!
 So on monday we went to SHOP!!! And I didn't   find anything but there is always next time! It was an actual mall!!!!  for Paraguay that's WAY different!! So i was just happy to be in a mall haha! Then on tuesday we had to go to the hospital for my last checkup of my toe.. and guess what... ITS HEALED!!! Yay!!!! haha but we ended up seeing hermana Wilson there too! So we hung out with her and talked while waiting for my appointment... which was like 2 hours haha! but ya! and then after my comp had to call home about some personal things so then we hung with pres and hermana wilson. And then they drove us home in the car! CHUCHI!! haha! Then on wednesday my comp had really bad flu.. still does but ya so we didnt work very much cause she was sleeping. So then i finally convinced her to go to the doc haha so we went back to the hospital for her on viernes. So she got the drugs and we can home haha! But funny thing is is that on saturday i was walking on the street and the wiedest thing happened. So  my foot was firmly on the ground and then i like fell... hard...  and i scraped up my knees and my hands but my right hand hurt the worst. So i went the rest of the day and it still hurt but i was like aww está bien! well yesterday at church it was hurtiing and a little swollen. So we called hermana wilson and she was like go to the hospital and get an xray SO yesterday we were there and the doc said that he thinks my muscul is bruised but today i have to go back and get it checked again and get another xray  of the other side of my hand haha! SOOOO ya!!! This week has been a crazy week! When we called hermana Wilson she was like laughing like oh my gosh here it goes again! hahaah and President was in the background like NOOO!! haha! So i think that if it is broken i think they are gonna put me in a plastic bubble haha! Its been crazy! and the crazy thing is is that this area doesnt have as much rocks in the road as my other area haha! 

NOW.. for a cool thing that happened this week....

So on Sat we had a noche de hogar with a part miembro familia. And the mom is like super interested in being baptised but never was because she cant talk or hear. So we were talking durring our planamiento semenal and we were like lets baptise her! So we asked her through writing it down on the paper and she said YES!!!! SOOOO we are SOOOOO excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so right now her fecha is 25 of this month! I cant describe when we were talking to her through writing, how you could feel the spirit soo strong! Heavenly Father wants her baptized! and when hermana Salgado wrote that if she does this she can live with her kids for eternity she teared up and smiled and was like sí yo quiero  eso! AHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we are stoked!!!! right now she is our only investigator but we really feel like shes gonna be baptized!

ANyways that was my week!!! 

Love you guys!!
