Ciudad del Este, Paraguay


Elder Andrus

Week 71 (Todavia Ciudad Del Este)


How has everyone been! This week has been pretty good. Elder Andrus and I have been working and working but we aren't finding that the investigators are progressing. But we are analyzing what we can do better and mientras tanto we will just keep pushing!!

With that said, we have had several spiritual experiences for which we are quite happy. This week I was able to return to Barrio 1 and do divisions with an Elder there and we were able to visit some of the investigators that we were teaching while I was there. There were 2 in particular that I was so happy to see. We were able to visit Diego....he is still trying to fix his legal problem so that he can be baptized....but he really has had the biggest change that I have seen in anyone on my mission. He is a completely different person and it makes me so happy to see the Gospel work in the life of him. The other was Estela. You might remember that she had had a baptisimal date for the 12 of November (I was emergency transferred the week before that) and then the day we did her interview she confessed problems with the law of Chastity. Anyways so the elders have been visiting her still but her boyfriend is being a real big obstacle. But on Tuesday we had one of the most spiritual lessons of my life. It was awesome. We talked about loving God more than anything and she even said that her boyfriend was holding her back from being closer with God. It was so cool and she planned to talk to him today when he gets back in town so we will see what happened! I am so excited! She is so awesome!

In other news, Freddy and Alejandro are doing great! Freddy comes in a white shirt and tie every week and yesterday Alejandro showed up in a SUIT!! It was so cool to see them! Also they were interviewed to get the Priesthood so they will get that in the next couple of weeks. We are so excited for them.

President is here in CDE and we were able to have interviews with him. It was cool to be there with Elder Andrus and chat with President about everyone in the zone. President really is an awesome guy and I know he is a servant of the Lord to bless every missionary here. We will have Zone Conference tomorrow.

Well other than that I don't have much to report. Life is good here. God blessed us with 2 days this week that were really really really surprisingly cool (Seriously, one morning we got up at 5:30 to play basketball and i almost tossed on a jacket....) but then it heated right back up so thats cool!

I love you all so much! Thanks for everything you all do and please keep being Witnesses of God in every moment! (Elder Andersons talk!)

Have the best week!
