Rhett - The Grind

What's up family and friends,
I hope you all had a great week. It's always great getting to hear from you guys. This week was a good one. Elder Coello and I have just been working and working and finding new people to help and serve every day. One thing that's been kinda hard here in Paraguay is finding people when they are home. The people here are always working during the week. Moms, dads, kids, everyone is out of the house trying to work to make money for their families. We meet so many people every week, have great lessons with them, but then come back another day and they are not home because they had to leave to work again. Haha it's a bit difficult at times but we have continued to find more people to teach and a few are really progressing.

These past weeks we have been teaching a family of three. The dad Euhenio, the mom Dominga, and their daughter Sophia. We found them one day just walking down a street one day contacting their house. We told the mom that we had a message really important for her and her family that can bless and change her life. She let us in and we starting talking to her and her daughter.They told us that they were Catholic but don't really go to church much. After talking with them for a while, I came to find out that they didn't really know much at all about Jesus Christ and who He actually was. We were able to explain to them who Jesus Christ actually was and what He did for us. That through him, we can overcome the pains are burdens of sin and one day return to live with our Father in Heaven. Man it was a great experience and to really testify and bring Christ into their lives. We have continued to teach them and they have accepted to be baptized next month! We just have to help them come to church!

We have also been teaching a kid named Santiago. He is 13 years old and is always outside playing soccer near his house. We have been teaching him about Jesus. I just want to testify that I know Christ lives! He died for me and for all of you because He loves us and wants us to have the peace that we seek in this life and in the life to come. I know that through Him we can live with God again! Love you all!
