Week 51.... kinda like Area 51, its hard to believe its real

Well, it’s week 51. haha and well it’s been a good week. We helped Cinthia move in to live with Nenii, and now they can go to church together, and they can keep each other company and ahhhh I’m so happy haha. Hermana Welch and I had the idea a long time ago, but we decided to maybe give them to hint super sneaky subtle and see if they figure it out on their own. so we told Cinthia maybe she could find a place that would be better for her to live than were she was, and we told Nenii she should see if she could find somebody to stay with her in her house so she wouldn’t be so lonely. And just about a month later boom! Nenii invited Cinthia to live with her for only 100,000 Guaranies a months, which is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy cheap. So it’s a miracle! Yay! And all the sisters at church are in love with her baby, which makes sense, cuz he’s adorable, and he’s super happy if he’s being held. Sad though cuz I can’t hold him. :/ but it’s cool, cuz Nenii can and all the other sisters at church. So fellowshipping through mothering tips! Yay!
Today we went to a soccer museum and it was super cool. It had a bunch of trophies from like way back to 1902. It was cool. And pictures and videos from old soccer games. And we watched a video inside of a giant soccer ball about the history of soccer in South America. It was cool. We almost got locked inside. Which would have been crazy, but it’s cool. We made it out before they locked up.
Also, it must have been pretty hot today, because we all 4 got super sun burnt today haha. It feels nice to be crispy again. It reminds me of like 3 years ago when I went on a whale watching / fishing boat ride, and got one very burnt arm. I’m burnt like that, but all over haha,. it’s great. Imma be so brown tomorrow. Yea! Becoming more Hawaiian and more Latin all at the same time. weeeee haha
This Sunday was nice too, because a brother spoke about the authority of God, and how God always calls prophets and apostles, and gives them the power and authority to act in His name through the priesthood, and then he started talking about how that authority is what’s used to heal the sick and afflicted, and I was sitting next to Cinthia, and she remembered, and recognized that it was that power that healed her when the elders came to give her a blessing like 3 months ago, it was so cool. She remembered and she keeps saying she wants to get baptized so I know she will and its gunna be a wonderful day. I’m just so glad I get to know her, and help introduce her to the blessings of the Gospel. I wish I could bring her home with me haha.
But anyway, that’s what’s been going on here in Paraguay, and lots of rain and then lots of sun. So you know, just the normalness of Paraguayan summer, no big deal.
I love you guys! I hope you have a good week!
