Things continue to go a bit slow. We were about to have a Ward Mission Leader this Sunday, but the Stake President came to the Ward, so it slipped through the details. Next week he will be sustained and set apart. A sister from the ward will be leaving to Spain for her mission this week. The Stake President said a lot of things in Sacrament Meeting about reverence in Sacrament Meeting, the importance of Sacrament Meeting, and why we need to keep the Sabbath Day holy.

Elder Peralta is teaching me Guaraní. (Che añe'ẽgua guaranípe.) Practically everyone from Paraguay speaks Guaraní. Bro. Gonzalez in the ward and his son who served in Honduras speak Guaraní. Turns out Bro. Gonzalez lived about 10 blocks away from Elder Peralta in Asunción.

One of the daughters of the Vallejos and her family will be moving out this week to Corrientes. The other Elders of Pablo Nogués might end up moving in to where they were living. (Photo)

If every member is to be a missionary, the manual for missionaries "Preach My Gospel" should be a part of one's Gospel study. There are many misconceptions about the Church. The best way to fix that is for every member to declare what they know to be true and how they came to know it. There are not enough full time missionaries to do that. It seems to me that if we are not ready to share the Gospel, we are not really converted to the Gospel yet.
