July 20, 2015

Hey Everyone, 

Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun this week. We will definitely have to go to the temple a lot when I get back from the mission.  I can't believe Dad and Christian went camping.  Dad a camper?  And with the scouts? ha ha I feel like I am on  a long scout camp right now ha ha.  I'm so glad to hear you have been helping out the sister missionaries.

This week for me was good and it was a really good week for me learning wise and progressing as a missionary.  This week I learned a lot from my district leader.  We did divisions this week on Friday and it was the most successful day I have ever had in my mission,  We taught 10 lessons ha ha.   Talking with him I learned a lot and he helped me understand better what I can learn from my companion.  It helped out a lot and we had a great week full of lessons.  He helped me to be a lot more motivated.  I was in a bit of a slump from the previous two weeks and a little bummed out but things are great now. 

We are finding a lot of new people to teach.  We are working extremely hard right now.  I am anticipating a transfer and want to leave this area on a high note.  The family of 6 still hasn't come to church.  They struggle to give up work but this Sunday they have committed more than ever so we will see.  Once people make that commitment to go they never miss so hopefully they can make it.  

I haven't seen the new humanitarian group yet.  They are building a school in my area but are staying and going to church in another area in my zone.  We found a man that works with them and so tomorrow we are going to try and go when they are there and see whats up and hopefully we will find them then. 

Reuben is still no where to be found.  It is really sad but we are trying our best.  Emelio is amazing! He has now taken the duty of taking the trash out at the church and he is the first member there.  Church always starts at 9 and he is there every week at 7:30 sharp.  He is awesome.  He goes with us almost every day to visit people.  The brothers who were baptized are good as well.  They are funny and have made some really good friends in the branch so they are good.  We are doing a family home evening with them tonight.

The weather today STINKS! It's Pouring rain like CRAZY!  Lately it hasn't been too bad, not too hot or too cold and then today CRAZY! 

Transfers are next Wednesday and I am pretty sure I'm going to be going.  I have only been in 2 areas so far and most people who left when I did are on their 3rd or 4th, so I definitely think there will be a change.  I guess we shall see never know. 

Great job with the missionaries in your area.  I'm glad you have been helping them out so much.  

Exciting news on Ryker's mission call.  He always wanted to speak German

Love you all tons

July 13th, 2015... The pope came to Paraguay

Hey Everyone,

This week went by quick, this whole month is going by quick.
Sounds like you are all keeping really busy at home.  When the cats away the mice will play ;)

I am so excited for Kaeli.  I'm sure she is going to be an amazing missionary and I can't wait to get her letters once she is out in the mission field.

This week was a rough one!  We were kicked out of our area for a couple of days because the Catholic pope came to visit and pretty much that messed up our whole week.  His visit made things really hard this week.  We were yelled at a good amount and it was pretty rough.  The people here just went crazy.  My area happened to be right by where he decided to visit and everything closed down.  It was a disaster! Even the members went to see him,  it was sad, but it is what it is.

We called to check in on Reuben and some woman answered the phone and said he was a catholic.  It was really upsetting.  I guess he is back in the hospital so we still can't go see him but we are going to keep trying.  I was really hoping you could have found him on Facebook for me. :(

The family of 6 almost came to church on Sunday but they were blocked down town into their house because of the pope.  We were so close.

The weather here is being bi-polar right now.  One day it rains and is cold and the next it is way too hot.  I never know what to expect.  hahaha

I will definitely keep Sam in my prayers.  Sorry about the pictures last week and this week.  The computer isn't working the greatest and I am having a hard time getting them to load.

I almost forgot...

Last week I met with President Wilson and his wife for lunch one day and the next day we had interviews.  I guess you could say I know him pretty well now. hahaha  He is definitely different that President Agazzani.  He is a lot more mellow but I think he is just getting adjusted.  Not complaints he is a great guy. :)

Love you lots.
Thanks for everything,
 Elder Heugly

Our whole mission saying goodbye to President and Sister Agazzani

July 6, 2015

Hey Everyone,

It's been a pretty good week.

I saw sister Bodily and her daughter again on Sunday with their group.  They head home on Friday and I believe we are having a big BBQ Wednesday to say goodbye to them, so I will definitely have to swing by.

Reuben is still really sick.  He has a problem with being dizzy and falls a lot so he is kind of stuck in the house.  He is always on Facebook, that's about it right now.  He speaks English really well so I'm sure you could talk with him if you would like.  I'm sure he would like that too.

Our investigative family of 6 didn't go to church on Sunday.  Sadly they went to work at 6 in the morning and didn't come but we are still working on them and hoping they will be able to come next week.

We went this past week to hear the the mission president say his goodbyes and is was very sad.  We are definitely going to miss him.  He was such a great guy.  He gave us a really cool gift when we were there though.  It was a temple recommend holder with his picture on it and the mission scripture.  I still haven't seen or met the new president but tomorrow we have zone conference and I am sure that is when I will meet him.

Nothing much else has happened this week.  It's been pretty slow here.  It has been really cold which is crazy. Cold with rain.  I think in August it will start to warm up again but I have no clue.  They say the winters here are short but we will see.  The heat was definitely better than the cold that's for sure.

I can't believe I just passed my 10 month mark and arm already moving on to my 11 month mark.  Time flies!

Love you all tons!
