Week 77 (Tuesday PDAY in Paraguay)

Hello everyone!

I know you were just all so concerned yesterday sitting at the comp waiting for my email but the mission president threw you all a curveball (actually probably just mom and grandma......) But si, we had our Zone Conference yesterday with Pte and Hermana Svec and it was really awesome! Super spiritual and uplifting. And for that we had Pday today!

Huge BUMMER....Estela didnt come to church on Sunday bc her son had a problem and couldnt come and so her baptism will now be the 25 of March......Even though there is a high chance that I wont be here to see it, I am still happy for her bc she is just so awesome and loves the gospel so much!

As for the other.....we have a couple really cool investigators Hugo, Bernevel, and William but they are having some problems in their progress.....we will keep working with them and praying for their progression.

In good news, we recieved the Easter Cards from the chruch and are excited to participate in the PRINCEofPEACE campaign. I dont think the video is up yet but from the cards, it looks like it is gonna be sweet on this year!

Today since we had our Pday on Tuesday we decided to take advantage and head to the ITAIPU ZOO which is closed every monday for maitenence. So we head on out there and to our pleasant surprise.....CLOSED UNTIL MAY.... Hahah so we ended up attending the nice ITAIPU Museum and learned about the Paragauyan Natives and then The Spanish coming to conquer them and then the building of the Dam. It was actualyl more interesting than I thought it would be and it is always fun to do something different on Pday!!

Also to top off the PDay (and taking advantage of it probably being my last week in CDE) we went to the Nike Store and bought a couple soccer jerseys of Manchester City and Cerro Porteño, a local team here, and then after in the street I had to take advantage of the bargain deals and snatch a couple replicas of the USA and The Netherlands! I am pretty stoked. I will try to send pics if I can!

Well other than that, the work is good. It was good to have President here this week, we were able to have interviews with him and he really is an inspired man. It was a pleasure talking with him and he really helped me maintain faith and hope through all the trials that seem to come to Elder Andrus and I all the time recently!

I really do know that the Lord never leaves us alone.....he is there in every trial and if we just take a moment to look and see where he is in those moments we will feel his love even more than we normally do. I am so grateful for the knowledge I have been able to attain through modern day prophets and apostles as well as modern day scriptures!

I love you all! Have the best week!
