El Papa

The pope came to Paraguay this last Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Nobody worked for those three days, or went to school. All public transport was used to only those going to go see the Pope, and they even shut off the internet for 3 days! Gosh, it's been so annoying! Everyone is talking about the pope, all the televisions are talking about the pope, and everyone is even singing songs about the pope HA Sooooo annoying. The government here is run by catholics, and millions of dollars have been spent for him to come visit. Question of the week from every investigator, member: What is the difference between the Pope and "Your" prophet... HA Our prophet is called of God, and recieves revelation directly from Him!

Butttttt, it's all good! Because this week, we had a baptism! YEAHHHH gosh, I love baptisms. Christian, the son of a recent convert got baptised! He is super awesome, if only a bit timid ha But it was a great time. We had a few people jsut show up to church this past week who want to get baptised, so we have our work cut out for us for this next week. Including a 50 year old super awesome guy, who lost his family due to alcohol. The other Elders invited him to church on the street, and he came! Super prepared and ready to change and better his life through following Jesus Christ.

We also got to travel to Asuncion this week to see and talk to the new mission president! He is SO awesome. A much more serious and quiet soft speaking guy. But he has some great plans for the mission, and will change a lot with what we do to retain new converts in the church.

Other than that, not to much! The training is great, I really enjoy it. This week I'm turning 19 years old... So old! haha Interesting to think about how I will be here in Paraguay for the whole time I am 19! ha But I'm stoked. The mission is a great time! Had mexican food monday last week with all the Americans. Enjoyed some nice Tex/Mex food! Elder Greene (from my group) is my zone leader, and is also going to Utah State. (As you can see in the pic) We have already planned out our skiing trips for when we get back hahaha Love you guys!! Until next time
