It has been wonderful to be in Paraguay...to experience the sights, sounds and smells of where Zach has been serving these past two years. I have enjoyed visiting the areas he has lived in and some of the sights he saw. I have enjoyed the food we have eaten. It has been humbling at times to see how the people here live. It has been sometimes frustrating but always a good challenge to see how much Spanish I can understand. It has been interesting to learn new customs and look for similarities and differences. But, the best part of Paraguay for me has been the people themselves. The people of Paraguay have been without exception very welcoming and always willing to help us. They have been generous. They have great love for their family and friends. They are proud of their towns and their country. In our short visit, I have developed a love for the people in Paraguay. Paraguay is called the "Heart of America" and the people are truly the "heart" of Paraguay!
