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.

Jess you nerd,
Why didn't you tell me you had a blog! Love the pictures of Paraguay - makes me want to go back again, especially if I could just have a cup of cocido and empanadas from that little place by the church in San Isidro!
