Peanut Butter Saved His Life!

Quierdo Familia,

Esta semana ha pasado bien. La obra ha parado un poco, pero, mi compañero y yo vamos a trabajar de vuelta esta semana que viene para que podamos encontrar nuevos y trabejemos con nuestro nuevos investigadores que tenemos. Tambien, tenemos una asignación a dar un discurso este domingo. Qué divirtido! Quizás divirtido. No sé. Algunos de los miembros no entiendan español, entonces, quizas voy a incluyir ´Ñandejára ñanderaihu´ y otras frases de Guaraní. Esta frase significa ´Dios nos ama´. Entonces, ´Che aikuaha Ñandejára ñanderaihu.´ Sé qué Dios nos ama. :). Hube podido aprendido algunas chistes en Guaraní tambien, pero, chistes en español son difíciles... hahaha. :) Todavía estoy aprendiendo! :)

It's good to know we are 3 hours difference. I got the single servings of peanut butter. THANKS!!! They saved my life... hahaha. Also, I will be ready to be called at 7 my time, 4 yours. I know it doesn´t fit with Mike, but it´s the best I can do. :/ Sorry! :( I also haven´t called the office to see if the first package has arrived. This week has been a little crazy... I’m sure you understand.  I will call later... these first few days are going to be busy in the office because it is the start of the month and missionaries are going to be calling about Sunday. A cat??? And Flash hasn´t eaten her yet? Man, I need to develop self restraint like that ;) hahaha.  Are things going well?

Ya... vamos a ver acerca este paquete. Oops. We will see about this package. I hope it will work. That past one was small enough and light enough to go through the encomienda that I get every week. And that tape job was hard to undo. Just so ya know. Ojála que la oficina reciba el otro paquete. I hope that the office received the package. Too much Spanish... hahaha. [He has received his second package but not his first one... we used the smallest flat rate box, so that is good to keep in mind].

Well, there isn´t too much to report from my end. There was a partido classico yesterday - Olympia contra Cerro Porteño. There were a lot of fiestas... let´s just say that.

Thankfully, it didn´t rain at ALL last week - much to my suprise. But my luck can´t last THAT long... and so it has run out, as it is raining today. C´est la vie. Or whatever that

French phrase is. Such as it is. We were supposed to have a baptism for the wife of a family we baptized in parts last month, but at every date, she hasn´t come. I don´t know que pasó, but I hope things are fine. We are going to start a new with finding new families to teach here. We´ve hit a block with the investigators we have and their certain circumstances that can´t change right now. It´s hard to switch, because these investigators are good, but because of other factors they can´t progress. It´ll be hard to keep a balance in visiting them to still strengthen their testimonies and finding families who can progress. But, this is the Lord´s work, and He will guide us in what He would have us do.

Yay!!! You got the letter from the president! Two months in waiting! My other letters should be coming soon... my one to Abe will be too late, as he is in the MTC now. I don´t about the others who are prepping for their missions, but I hope they are doing great. This 2 month waiting for a letter makes it difficult with changes in addresses... verdad? Oh, I have been getting your Dear Elder (It´s really nice to be able to read them leisurely en vez de rushing through them) and a letter from Wendykins. I will be working a reply soon!

I´m excited to be able to talk to you in person soon! Please confirm tonight that Sunday, May 9th, 7:00 PM Paraguay time (I believe 4 PM Cali time) is good. We will be checking our email as a district tomorrow to confirm. Thank you thank you thank you!

Well, That about sums up my news. Nothing exciting. It´s an amazing experience to work as a servant of the Lord. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored, original church of Jesus Christ when he was on the Earth. El Libro de Mormón es verdadero, y contiene las palabras y enseñanzas de Jesucristo. Hay una promesa - y esta promesa es verdadera. Ore a Dios, en el nombre de Jesucristo, para que usted pueda preguntar si este libro es verdadero. Busque sus sentimientos y pensamientos. Oración es
solamente una conversación con Dios. Diga las palabras de su corazon. Che aikuaha Ñandejára ñanderaihu y quiere demostrar su amor para usted.  I know that God loves us and wants to show his love for you. I really do. I love you all!

Les quiero!!

Elder Watson
