Ruben (Whitney's first baptism) with his mom,
Hna Ramos and Hna Plummer

hola familia. happy birthday raelyn! woohoo. amy and brian. i am in the process of writing you a letter, which i will tell you in advance demands pictures. Haha... I know you are busy, but please send some pictures! anyways, as always, the week flew by. we got rejected a lot this. week. it was so sad. I guess i got a taste of what missionaries feel like in other countries. the paraguayos have a fear of "no". so they reject you soflty, but hard rejection is rare. we got a taste of it this week. but it is ok, because our investigator Christian is pur├ęte. he is way excited for his baptism this saturday. we still have a bit to teach him, but he is progressing so much.
there is something really hard about the mission. it is that you love the people. these people are so great. we teach people for the first time and feel a love for them. we worry about them. we want so much that they accept the restored gospel in their lives. what is hard about that? Then they close their hearts. we had a lot of experiences like that this week. mom, you have asked me what is the hardest part about the mission. that would be one of the hardest parts for me. everyday, I am reminded of what a blessing it is to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints. the world is so confused. it is so complicated, but the restored gospel of Jesus Christ is so simple, so amazing. I think back to my life before the mission. how my perspective has changed. how can we not do everything possible to share with others this amazing gift we have been given of knowing the truth? sorry this is short, but I am running out of time. send pictures please! oh I got yours lindsay and nic. so cute! until next week.
