Well, I am afraid that it will not be a white Christmas here in Paraguay.
As for this week, the elders from Caacupe were with us until Wednesday at about lunch. While we were together we did a lot of divisions and Elder Bryan and I found a Beautiful little Family quite close to our house and we shared with them Tuesday and they wanted really badly to do everything so that they could be an eternal family. We shared with them once again on Thursday and they had read and were preparing to come to church. We went back on Saturday and the owners of the house had arrived and had sent them packing. I guess they didn’t have a need that our family watch the house!!! It was devastating. We are not sure where they have moved to, because we had forgotten to ask for their phone number.
This area is hard. Out of the entire Branch of Pirayu there are only four people not counting the branch president and the missionaries that are worthy which makes it super hard because there is no example of how the new investigators should be like. We have been working with them a ton and there is not much change at all. We don’t know what we can do differently to help them.
We had also gone and talked very straight forwardly to the ex-branch presidente and kind of upset him. However, latter that night he called and asked forgiveness and said that he would come to church this Sunday and he did and he brought some of his buddies.
Our plans for p-day today as well as almost every other p-day since we arrived here is to go to Caacupe, which in a bus takes 1hr and half to get there so that we can practice a song for the mission Christmas party which will take place this Wednesday.
That is all folks!
My scripture of the week is Jacob 4:9, the Word of God is really the most powerful thing in the universe. May we conform our lives to its standards!!
I love you all
Love, Elder Call
Jacob 4:9 For behold, by the power of his word man came upon the face of the earth, which earth was created by the power of his word. Wherefore, if God being able to speak and the world was, and to speak and man was created, O then, why not able to command the earth, or the workmanship of his hands upon the face of it, according to his will and pleasure?
