Falling for Moroni

¡Hola familia y amigos!

This week has been a crazier week than usual for us here in Moroni.

On Monday we had a tender mercy - WE GOT FANS IN OUR APARTMENT!!! Every missionary house/apartment should have a certain set of things, such as a stove, refrigerator, air conditioning, blenders, fans, etc - however over time these things break and most of the time no one replaces them and you never know what you're going to get. Our house has no windows to the outside world, we had no fans and our air conditioning machine only cools about a 2 ft x 2 ft section of our house. Basically it's an oven. After getting fans, our house is still an oven, but it's an oven with wind and we are super grateful. It's really the little things that make a difference.

Funny story: on Monday night we were putting together the fans w/o reading the instructions and it was getting close to bedtime so Hermana Santos improvised and used her jump rope and tape to get the fan to point down on us as we slept. My hija is truly becoming Paraguayan.

On Wednesday we had Zone conference and we learned a TON of what we can do to help our investigators become more converted to Christ. On Thursday we both went to Salado to do divisions with the Hermana leaders and I got to spend the day with Hermana Mera from Mexico. We learned tons over the two days and were super excited to get back and apply what we'd learned.

Another funny story: On Saturday we were walking to an appointment and there was a group of people sitting in front of a dispensa/bar. As always we waved and greeted them in passing, However as I was focusing on smiling and waving I stepped in a hole in the pavement and cìao-cito Hermana Carr - I went down. With minimal damage done, I hopped right back up and we kept going, but the people we were waving to seemed shell-shocked and Hermana Santos did not stop laughing for a solid 5 minutes. During this Valentine's weekend the only thing I'm falling for is our area, Moroni.

Even while walking in the 47 degrees (celsius) heat, everything is awesome and we are working hard en la obra del Señor.

With love sent from Paraguay,

Hermana Carr
