Week 14, Living in Piro'y

Hello people of earth and ocean, another week has passed and I can't believe I've been here for soooooooooo long already! Time really is flying.

Thinking about time, and remembering how much I wanted to just fly through all the waiting around in my life, I came to the conclusion that time goes by really fast, but no matter how fast or slow it is going we HAVE to live every moment of our lives. We can't fast forward or pause the time we have, and especially on my mission I can feel my time slipping away. I have 13 months and 2 weeks left it's crazy! So, the point is, don't sit around waiting for a new area, new people to talk to, a new job, a new something. Work with what you have, because you're going to leave the area you have and the chance you have to teach the people you are with is running out. So, open your mouth, embrace the time and the place you have and thank our Heavenly Father for all that He has given us. 

I've been in Piro'y for one week now, and there is so much fun stuff here and our ward is great. We've had youth going out with us every day. My companion is from Honduras, and she is super excited to both help me with Spanish and to learn English, so we have been having fun learning words and teaching each other simple grammar. 

We also have several progressing investigators, so were pretty excited to be working here with so much potential in this ENORMOUS AREA. we have been walking all over a huge chunk of land full of grass and dirt and tiny shack houses. It's beautiful and amazing. I'm seriously in heaven. Next week I'm going to bring my camera so I can send pictures of the amazing view some of these people have out their windows. 

Well this is all I've got to say really. I love you all and thanks you for all the support you guys give me!
