Hello PARAGUAY!! Now the Adventure Really Begins!!

The week was Lauren's travel week from the CCM (Mission Training Center) in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Asuncion, Paraguay!!  So all communication this week was intermittent and focused on entering the mission field!  In Paraguay, Lauren's PDay (Preparation Day when she sends her weekly updates) will be on Mondays.

Dear Family of Sister Fardos:

We are so happy that your daughter has joined us here in the Paraguay Asuncion North mission.  We know that as she commits to work hard and be obedient to mission rules, and continues to study and seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost, she will have a great experience on her mission.  She will grow to love the people, she will be willing to pass through difficulties, and she will come to know and love her Savior in a more profound way than she has ever known.

During her first day here, we were able to give her some training on staying healthy, finances, mail, etc. She was interviewed and met her trainer, Hermana Curi from Peru, who was specially chosen for her.  She has proven herself to be a wonderful and hard-working missionary and we expect that they will have a great experience learning from each other.  We hope you will enjoy these pictures that we are attaching.

Thank you for raising such a fine young woman who is so willing to serve her Father in Heaven and be a blessing to the people here and to her fellow missionaries.  We truly pray for them every day and are committed to working diligently to help them in whatever they need to be happy and successful.

May the Lord bless you and your daughter for the sacrifices, the faith, and the love that you are extending to the people here.  Thank you for all of your support.

With much love,
President and Sister McMullin
