Work Hard, Work Hard

¡Hola familia y amigos!

This week was a good one for Hermana Santos and I.

To finish off her training, Hermana Santos and I took the determination to si o si contact 70 personas this week. As missionaries we have the mandate to each talk with 10 people everyday - it sounds easy, and may be it is easy for some, but for us it's hard. We can't control the number of people that receive us and we can't control what commitments our investigators do or do not keep, but we realized we can control how many people we talk to - this week were determined and we made our goal! To celebrate we got Dominos today for P-day! ... now we're going to do it over again this week, and for the rest of our missions :)

The heat is starting to calm down a little and we are super grateful. We've cut down trees with machetes, we've seen break dancers street performing for the people at red lights and we even contacted houses to ask to use their bathrooms. This week has been crazy, and overall this change has been crazy with Hermana Santos - just as with all my comps, she's become a best friend of mine. Tomorrow we will start the new change and we are excited to see what will happen!

With love sent from Paraguay,

Hermana Carr
