So this week was very interesting! We had transfers and now I'm all the way back in Paraguay! To be exact I'm actually in a small little Tranquilo town called Pilar. And in Pilar its pretty quiet, there are two small branches, one with a pair of sisters and the other with me and my companion!

My new companion is Elder Ramos, he is from Venezuela and this is his last transfer! He is the oldest of two with a younger sister who is 20, him being about 27 with his birthday coming up in 9 days!

The area that we have of Pilar is a bit horseshoe shaped having a river running through it. Its a lot of walking and hopefully we can get the bikes fixed back up so we can get to our things quickly! haha

Jumping back a few days and not having to have packed for a while I ended up packing till a weee 2 am and then off to the Terminal to do the trips and everything at 7 so a wee 4 maybe 5 hours of sleep then buses and the whole lot of traveling. AHah it was fun and when I crossed over into Paraguay i ran into Elder Herzog, my comp from the MTC! And I was going to be waiting there for a bit so we decided to go get lunch. My first lunch back in Paraguay was McDonald's! And how glorious a day it was. Got my shoes shined once again while I was in Paraguay, much like I did just a little over a year ago. It wasn't the same kid which was a bit depressing but none the less it was a funny reminder!

Church and visiting people during the week was fun, its always a rush to get to know new people and talk with them! I really enjoyed being able to get to know the new people. The branch president is actually a shoe worker so he happened to fix up my pair of shoes. I was actually just about to toss out. Then Sunday came around and was able to take up about 5 minutes of time talking for a bit. Based on the short talks that were given by the two younger speakers haha..

But that's been my week so far!
