ELDER SHAW IS THE GREATEST (He typed that, haha).
We are sitting here in an internet cyber in San Ignacio, about 2 hours away from Pilar. We had to travel early this morning to have interviews here with President Callan. Tonight we are heading out to Encarnación (another 3 hours away) for zone conference tomorrow. It turns out in this cyber there aren`t 2 computers next to eachother, so Elder Shaw and I are sharing a computer and that is why he wrote a little message to start things out.
We have had another very exciting week. We have been working very hard to help our investigators progress and to find new investigators at the same time. Last week I talked about Gabriela, the daughter of the less active member. She made it to church again yesterday and is excited for her baptism this Saturday. We are praying that all goes well because since we are traveling, we won`t be in our area until Wednesday. The members are so great though that they do visits when we aren`t there. There is one family (The Suarez family) that is so great and visit all of our investigators on their own.
We had another great miracle this week with a new investigator we found. Her name is Lorena, she is living together with a less active member named Alexander. They are a young couple and Alexander hasn`t been to church in a while. This week we started teaching Lorena and she has progressed a lot. At first, she was kind of slow to understand and didn`t show much interest, but as we taught the basic principles and about Christ she really started to open up. She offered a prayer for the first time and it went really well. Yesterday, Lorena went to church for the first time and really enjoyed it. So we are excited to see how she continues progressing.
Anyway, since we are sharing a computer, I don`t have that much time. So I will just finish saying that I love you all so much! Thanks for always writing and for your support. I know that this is the Lord`s work and I feel so blessed to be a part of it.
