The other thing that is nice, is that we do not see Hugo's posters slathered on every office wall!
We have been cleared by Interpol and the Health Department. You will all be glad to know that we do not have aides or syphilis.
We now have to go around to our neighbors and have them sign an affidavit stating that we actual do reside at the address given as our home.
In the mean while, we have enjoyed getting to know the folks at church here. The girls are active in the teen group and a small group bible study. My husband was able to preach his first sermon as a missionary in Paraguay last Sunday, which was exciting! We enjoyed the service two weeks ago which was in celebration of Children's Day. It is a big deal here so the church service was geared towards the children. My son in law gave a bible lesson using story cards. We had puppets and after the service a carnival type atmosphere had been planned for the neighborhood children with games, prizes, snacks and clowns. It was a great way to bring in families! Here are a few pictures of some of the events.
The people here are very friendly and humble, easy to get along with.
I made a major mistake by shipping our school books. We have only math and 9 weeks worth of other subjects in hand. Our shipment should arrive in port on the 7th.
The 7th of...never!
Oh well, there is a lot to study outside of books! I am preparing a small unit study on Paraguayan history and geography for the girls so that they are more familiar with the country.
I also was able to meet a Paraguayan blogger I have been following for over year a (Muna’s Blog)
as well as spend and evening with one of my favorite bloggers.(Brendas Blog)
And, some how, through it all, I totally forgot today was a holiday!
