This week was pretty crazy just cuz time has been passing by so fast! It's kinda cool having 2 areas to work in and being over a whole rama because there is always stuff to do and we are constantly busy. But I'm really loving it here tons, the members are the best. Oh and changes are tomorrow so I'm a little sketched out, cuz the summer months are coming up and this change there are lots of places in the chaco that are opening up and most of them don't have running water or electricity -haha so we´ll see where the Lord wants me to be.
letss seee.... a couple cool things that happened this week..
okay so we finally got to sit down and have our first real lesson with Marta Beatriz. She is a lady with like 40 years. She is a little different teaching because she loves the Virgin Mary so you gotta be careful about what we say about her or their moms in general cuz she takes it super serious. But for real she has lots of potential, she has been to church various times and already has a friend that's a member. I can already tell that she is changing poco a poco and going to be a fun one to teach. Hoping that things turn out for the best.
Okay yesterday was by far one of the coolest days in my whole mission so far. Yesterday we had Stake conference for the stake of Capiata which I'm in. The stakes here are a lot more spread out here in paraguay and the coolest part is that Itaugua is part of the stake Capiata. welllll what does that mean? It means I got to see all of my miembros in Itaugua!!!! ahhh it was soo cool, I was loving every bit of it. I got to see jesus(beetoo), the dude I baptized there and his mom and brother and ahh it was so cool to see them growing stronger and stronger in the gospel. I got to see so many familias and everyone of them that I saw their first words were ¨Holy crap you can speak spanish really good now?!?!¨ hahaha it was so funny tosee their faces when I would first start to speak, cuz they still remembered me as I was in my training barley being able to speak a word of spanish. So that was super cool to see all of them and the other cool part of the conference was that both Junior and Lisandro came! But Lisandro in particular had a sweet expierence there. In the conference President Mcmullin(mission pres) and his wife both talked about mission work and preparing to serve a full time mission. And in the middle of one of their talks Lisandro leans over to me and asks out of nowhere ¨How long does it take to prepare to serve a mission because I think I could have everything ready to go by this next September¨ Man...... like bro your not even babtised yet and he's already dropping everything to get ready and serve a mish! I mean how rad is that?! Yesterday was just one of the best days though. haha sometimes I just wanna leave and go visit all my miembros in Concepcion too ha I for sure have to visit them some day too.
But I'm glad to hear everything is going good at home and I hope the best for this week too! you guys are always in my prayers, love ya tons!

Hola familia!Today were all going to Asuncion as a zone to go bowling! So I have like 30min. haha but its all good. I don't know if you remember when I was in my training we went bowling in asuncion and it was super sick so I talked to my zone leaders and helped them plan it out and looks like we all get to go again! It should be super sweet. haha your probably thinking it's wierd that were all this stoked just to go bowling but from what I know this is the only legit bowling alley in all of Paraguay haha so its a pretty big deal;)But for changes!.................. My comp Elder carrillo ended up getting shipped out to luque and I'm staying here in cocuere. But..... there is a little twist. in the other area Elder rada got shipped out too so I'm going to be with his comp Elder Cisternas and we're going to be in charge of both of the areas! Both the areas are huge and I still don't know how it's all going to work but it will all work out in the end because it always does! haha, Mann two elders in charge of a whole rama, this should be fun! My district got a little mixed up too, I'm still district leader but now there only hermana missionarys in my district. Its going to be pretty wierd switching from pure elders to pure hermanas, but I'm sure it will be good. I was afraid to get changes because it means that I would have to pack all my bags.... I was stoked to hear I was staying so I didn't have to pack but we ended up changing to the other elders house which meant packing:/ ha but this change looks like it's going to be a good one, Elder cisternas is my first argintine comp but my 4th latin in a row, he is a pretty chill dude and I think things are going to be super rad here this change.Sorry i dont have a ton of time but i wanted to share a couple of the people we are working with right now. we just found a sick familia of 4 the moms name is lionia and they look super promising. the husband goes to church EVERY sunday at another church, but thats super super wierd to see here in paraguay that someone is that devoted to church, so we´ll see how that goes. In this rama there are tons of menos activos so ive been working with some different familias trying to get them back in church. some are familia Lopez, Familia Martinez, Familia Gonzalez and the familia Coronel. Things are going good here, lots of work to do and im for sure gonna be really busy this change which is awesome. anyway love you guys tons! and hope this week is a good one!Elder Nyberg
