Great to hear from you this week. We have had a successful week. To let you know, I am still here in good ´ole Pilar with Elder Ramos. I am confident that the Lord wants me here and that there is still work for me to do. I am excited to continue working in Pilar and I know that there are still so many people that will receive the gospel here in the months that come.
But like I said, we have had a really great week. Last week we struggled a little bit because it was Holiday time here in Paraguay and everyone was pretty busy in those days. This week things have calmed down a little bit and we have had a lot of success. Yesterday in church Pedro and Felisia were able to make it for the second time. We have been inviting them to be baptized on a specific date but they haven´t accepted so far. Pedro wants to be really sure of the decision that he makes. They were baptized before in an Evangelical Church a while ago but don´t attend there anymore and had some problems in that church. For that reason, they want to be really sure of their decision. But I can tell that they are sincere and want to be baptized, they just want to be sure as well.
We have also found some really golden people this week. Yesterday morning we taught a man who is so prepared! We taught him all of the message of the Restoration and he understood it really well. He told us that he had the feeling that he needed to be baptized, but he didn´t know in which church or how to know which church is true. Anyway, he is the father of a big family. They are about to have their 5th child this month. The family is all really great and the mom is realy receptive as well. We are excited to see their progress, They are planning on going to church next week.
Well I´ve got to go pretty soon. I love you all very much. Thanks for all of the support. I am grateful for the blessing of being here in the mission. I know that this is the work of the Lord! Have a great week
