I'm here in Presidente Franco!

So this place is absolutely lovely. We are actually in a ward now (that was a weird adjustment), and there are a lot of people to visit and a lot of members to work with. There is definitely a lot more movement here. I can tell we are pretty close to Ciudad del Este. Actually, we are super close to everything. About ten minutes away there's a place called "Tres Fronteras" or "Three Borders" and we can see Brazil, and Argentina, from here in Paraguay.

My companion is Hermana Percival. She is from Utah and is awesome! She wants to work a lot, and so do I- we are going to have a good transfer together. She goes home in April though, so she is starting to work on her college essay questions and stuff like that because she wants to transfer over to BYU. We have been working on her "homework" a few minutes each night so that she can get them finished in time.

There is a family here that we meet with that lived in the U.S. for fifteen years! Their oldest daughter was born there, and so we have been meeting a lot with her. She is reading the Book of Mormon, believes it is true, and kind of wants to serve a mission! We just told her that she needs to be baptized first, and she is super excited. We are working towards March 7th as her goal. Hopefully her enthusiasm keeps up and she keeps saying her prayers and reading her scriptures and coming to church!

2 Nephi 9:10 "O how great the goodness of our God, who prepareth a way for our escape from the grasp of this awful monster; yea, that monster, death and hell, which I call the death of the body, and also the death of the spirit." I know God is wise and merciful and just and perfect! He has prepared the perfect plan since before the world began to help His children overcome death through Jesus Christ! We just need to obey Him.

Love you all! Have a great week!
Hermana Simmons
