Five years ago today I left Paraguay to return home after serving a year and a half long mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have spent much of the day thinking about my friends there, the people I taught, the lives I helped change and the impact the experience has had on my life. As I sit here I am listening to my favorite Polka Paraguaya and dreaming of chipa and cocido. Even now my heart is full of an indescribable love for the people of Paraguay.
