Another Week in Yby Yau

Mon., 4/3/2017 (Yby Yau)

Once again we have stayed busy! We are also in Asuncion because my companion has migrations so I don't have very much time. Tuesday we had our District meeting in Pedro Juan Caballero, and we had to get a projector from the District (Stake) President. Wednesday Thursday and Friday we spent looking for new people to teach about Christ and his gospel. We found a good number of people that are really cool and hopefully they can continue to learn and progress! Saturday and Sunday we had General Conference. We were going to watch in Guarani because that's all a lot of people understand here but it didn't work so we had to watch in Spanish. We were able to watch some of the talks in Guarani. We didn't get to watch the Priesthood session on Saturday, but hopefully we will have a chance to watch it in a re-broadcast.

I did learn a couple things this week that I wanted to share. Having heard each of these points in detail at least 2 times each, I say they are important.

1. Read your scriptures and pray every day. The current prophet told us all to, so we should.
2. God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy ghost are 3 separate beings. Those who do number 1 will come to find this true.
3. Itś a hard one, but watching sports on Sunday is a no no. It drives our thoughts away from what we should be thinking about on the Sabbath.
4. To live your religion, you need to share your religion. If you know it's true, let other people know so they can have the truth too.
5. There are about a billion things I could write, but it's all there in General

And thatś it! Have a good week everyone!

43-44 We had to do something to keep the people occupied between sessions, So I played hymns on the computer, and we sang along. It was great having a computer to sing with, because the computer stays on tune hahaha. We sang a few that only I knew which was great, because the members got to learn a few new ones
