Hey Everyone,

This week was a good one.  We didn't have as much success as I would have liked but we are still working hard.

The investigators are good.  It is always hard to get them to come to church when there is rain because even the members don't go when it is raining.  It was tough because it has been pretty ugly weather this week.  I sometimes feel like the weather is working against us.

My companion is good.  We get a along well so not much to complain about.  He's a good guy and I am training him well.  Training is coming to an end.  December 2nd are transfers and he will no longer be the new guy in the mission field.

Each week we teach gospel principles.  It's for new members and I teach it alone most of the time since my companion is still working on his spanish.  He is getting a lot better though.  It's a good class and I have learned how to teach a class so it has been a good experience for me.

I got the package you all sent and Allan and Marco say thank you.  For Christmas I am in need of deodorant and 2 long sleeved shirts.  I sent my shirts to be taken in and the cut off the sleeves.  Other than that I don't really need anything.  Maybe a new pair of black shorts for p-day.  I only have one pair and could probably use another pair.  I don't think it is possible but I would love a Dr. Pepper haha oh and maybe some wheat thins, I miss those a lot.  Other than that I am great.

I'm glad all is well with everyone at home.  I was in Asunción today because my companion had to fill out some papers for his visa.  I forgot to grab my camera when we left.  The computers here are bad as well so I probably wouldn't have been able to send them anyway.  I will do my  best for next week.

I hadn't heard of the new church announcement.  Don't worry about what people are saying, that is something I have learned especially being here.  It seems like everyone is against us so we need to be strong and remember God is always with us.  Especially when we are going through hard times.  Helaman 5:12 is a scripture I love a lot that I think will help you.  We have to build our house upon the rock of Christ and be strong.  Remember the wise man built his house upon the rock and the foolish man build his house upon the sand and the rain washed it away.  Stay faithful and know I am always praying for you every morning and night.

I love you

Hello Everyone, 

I am really short on time this week so I am going to make this short so I can send some pictures.  

All is well with me. My rash is getting better little by little.  

We had a baptism this week and it was awesome.  Her name is Norma and I mentioned her in my last letter.  It was a great day.  

Allan and his family are doing great.  His Mom added Mom on Facebook.  She said she wants to know everything that I do after the mission. :) hahaha

Everything is going great with my companion.  He is doing an amazing job.  I should get the package tomorrow.  My zone leaders told me they have it.  Thanks for sending it, I can't wait to see what is inside and give the scriptures and ties to Allan and Marco.

I am so sorry this is so short this week.  We are really short on time today and I really want to send pictures so Mom knows I am alive. :) 

I love you all

Love Elder Heugly

Norma's Baptism...what a great day :) 

Rashes and New Investigators...

Hey Everyone,

Things are going good here.  This past week has been a great one.  We were able to  find so many new investigators, it was incredible.

We focused this past week a lot on finding people.  We visited members asking them for people we could visit and we had a lot of success with that.  We were able to find 15 people to teach this week.

We have a baptism this coming Saturday.  The sister we are baptizing rejected the missionaries for almost 5 years.  Her daughter's were just baptized recently and now she has decided it is her turn.  It was a real testimony builder that there are people waiting for me to find them.

My favorite experience this week was giving a talk in church.  My companion gave his first talk and said the gospel is like chocolate milk.  It's delicious and everyone wants it so we need to invite others to try it.  It was pretty funny.  We give talks every 4th sunday and this week we both talked about mission work.  We actually give a lot of talks and we also teach a class every Sunday.

I am excited I wasn't transferred.  I think I will finish up training and then I will end up being moved but we will see.  Transfers are no fun even though I know they need to happen.  They don't tell you until super late and then we head out early in the morning. It makes saying Goodbye hard to do. :(

My rash is slowly getting better little by little.  The Dr. said it was an allergic reaction but isn't quite sure what to.  He said I have to watch what I touch and eat and don't do anything out of the normal.  UMMMM I'm in Paraguay!?! HAHAHA  Besides that everything is good here with me.

I love you all and hope you are all doing well
