My name is Preston Alder I served my mission in the Paraguay Asuncion North Mission from 2011-2013. I have returned and am working as an intern in Paraguay for 4 months. My ex-companion Elder Colton Gardner and I have been working with the Nivacle people in Abundancia for the last 3 months and the experience has been incredible. We are working hand in hand with church leaders (Elder Gonzalez and Elder Gay of the 70) to help Abundancia progress physically as well as Spiritually. Please, if you have any plans to reach out or to help these people, contact me: preston.alder1@gmail.com. I would be more than willing to share my experience and put you into contact with people who can be of assistance.

My name is patricia rodriguez totterer from Uruguay, living in the US. I served a mission in Paraguay in 1983/84. My heart warmed up upon seeing a picture of elder Cafiero. He served in one of my areas before being called as a regular missionary. We worked to help him learn Spanish and English. Please if you have a way to communicate with him feel free to pass on my email. Beautiful, beautiful page. Happy Pioneers Day!

Thank you so much for your website! Words can not express my gratitude for the photos and the experiences shared! I served a mission in the outskirts of Asunción ('96-'98) and I also served in the incredible city of Pilar (southern Paraguay across the river from Argentina)! I still drink terere and Paraguay is forever in my heart! Long live Paraguay!!!

Thank you so very much for the wonderful pictures. I love Mistolar and La Abundancia! My husband and I loved traveling to these beautiful parts of Paraguay. It was always an adventure. It is good to see Pres. Rios playing soccer. I know we would have been lost if he had not always traveled with us!

Thank you for this site. I especially enjoyed the photos and videos. I served as a missionary in Mistolar in 83 and 84. I still remember the flooding that took place during that time, as we made a hasty escape.

I had the great pleasure of working with the brothers and sisters of Mistolar from its beginning, since the historic baptism on December 4, 1980, up until the foundation of Abundancia, sharing in the many blessings and sometimes hard trials of these stoic, humble and devout believers in the living word. So it will be a privilege for me to be hear any news of these brothers and sisters.

Tuve el gran placer de trabajar con los hermanos tanto de Mistolar desde sus inicios, desde el gran acto de bautismo el 4 de diciembre de 1.980, hasta la fundacion de Abundancia, participando de las muchisimas bendiciones y a veces durisimas pruebas de estos estoicos, humildes y devotos creyentes de la palabra viva. Asi es que sera un privilegio para mi estar al tanto de las noticias de estos hermanos.

Thank-you for this website. My son is serving a mission currently for the LDS Church and is in this area. He lives in Filadelfia but talks about Nueland and the Nivacle people all the time. It wonderful for me to see where he is serving and learn of the people he has come to love.

Thank you for this web site. My uncle is President Gerald Bradford Quinn. I happened upon this site while working on my Family History. All of the extended family has heard how much he and his family loved the Paraguay Mission. It was a hard time for them. One of their sons developed leukemia while they were serving. President Quinn was not able to stay there the whole 3 years. He was transferred as mission president in the Texas San Antonio Mission. But, the missionary work and progress in Paraguay was of utmost importance to him. His son, Robroy, has married and has a family he is raising. He was able to overcome his leukemia.
