Week 13 (7/6/2015)

Hey everyone! 
This week was changes, I am now in a new area, Yukyry! Pronounced (jew-coo-rue) Its awesome!
 It is a lot different than Pedro Juan, a lot less wealthy and more country. I love it. Its how I imagined Paraguay to be. I have a new companion from Peru, her name is Hermana Diaz. 
In this area they speak a lot more Guarani.... which I don't speak haha but it'll help me learn, hopefully!
 We visited a family that is less active and their daughter showed me around her yard, and introduced me to every plant and the clothes that were hanging to dry.... and I understood none of it. She only spoke in Guarani! haha it was crazy I just said a lot of "mhm!" and "en serio!?".  
This area is a lot bigger we have to take collectivos everyday which are buses, that could blow up at any second, to visit the people. Its a new experience! Humbling and great. 
I hope everyone is doing well! 
Happy Birthday Braidee and Gordon!!! and happy late 4th of July!! 
Miss you all!
 Thank you for your love, support and prayers! 
Hermana Speakman
