March 13, 2017



I cannot believe that I will be 20 in two days! Looks like Dad and Michael celebrated well.  Sure lovin´ Mikeys long hair - suiting him well. (is long hair the thing back in the states?)  That will be so nice to have Sister Missionaries in our ward - you will have to let me know where they are from. We have daylight savings too, but next week.  We are heading towards fall - WOOOO and we get one more hour! 
This week was sure a week of blessings - seriously cannot thank my Father in Heaven for difficult times, but then when the trial of faith is accomplished, blessings pour! (read Heleman 10: 4-6 - sure comforted Hermana G and I this week) The family DeLeon wants us to come back and teach them - the hermano had a dream about us helping them continue to prepare for their baptisms (God is so good) We have plans to visit them this week.  Also we had conference with the District -all 5 Ramas attended! Our chapel was filled with members - seriously the work in Paraguay is growing! ALSO we had 3 investigators attend - Beatriz and Marcelo (their first time) and Zulma (her second time) In the conference they talked a lot about temples, family history, and the sabbath day.  President Evans and Hermana Evans were there too.  President Evans talk was sure great!  Also funny story - we had a frog in our house and lets just say it was really interesting getting it out haha  We are still making plans to move - the office is helping us out with that.  We also taught a hobo- he asked for money, but we thought a scripture and a prayer was better :) - it actually was really sad, but we greatly expressed the love that his Savior has for him and we offered a prayer.   Also that picture on FB - two of the boys have a baptismal date for the 1st of April.  Leo (cousins with Diego) is for sure ready and is friends with one of the young women in Rama 3 - we want her to come with us when we have a time set with him.  Another great thing is that we contacted Mabel, she was an old investigator with the other missionaries awhile back - we found her (thanks to the carpeta and the spirit) and she is so ready! We just have to help her husband have a change of heart so they can get married and that she can get baptized - Hermana Antonia is going to help us with this situation.
We have some plans with the members for my birthday and the missionaries in my District and Zone have some fun stuff planed too! Oh we also had Taco night with the Gonzalez family - sure was yummy! They are such a fun family! I will send some pictures! Oh news - hermana G had her first paracite, but is doing well and it passed! (everyone has the welcome to Paraguay at some time)  Changes are on tues, but we find out the changes on Sunday.  Anyways send everyone back home my love and I hope everyone has such a great week! Thanks for your prayers! LOVE YOU ALLL

Hermana Alexander

Helaman 10:4-6
4 Blessed art thou, Nephi, for those things which thou hast done; for I have beheld how thous hast with unwearyingness declared the word, which I have given unto thee, unto this people.  And thou hast not feared them, and hast not sought thine own life, but has sought my will, and to keep my commandments.
5 And now, because thou hast done this with such unwearyingness, behold I will bless thee forever; and I will make thee mighty in word and in deed, in faith and in works; yea, even that all things shall be done unto thee according to thy word, for thou shalt not ask that which is contrary to my will.
6 Behold, thou art Nephi, and I am God.  Behold, I declare it unto thee in the presence of mine angels, that ye shall have power over this people, and shall smite the earth with famine, and with pestilence, and destruction, according to the wickedness of this people.
