April 17, 2017

Looks like you guys had a great time at Yosemite.  Sure loved the pictures! The boys look so good! Hermana Pardo and I love the Easter eggs that you guys made for us! We are both heathy and were able to have a great working week.  We contacted lots and made sure to share the Prince of Peace cards with everyone that we passed by.  The video sure testifies of our Savior.  This week has been extra special.  I seriously love testifying of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  He lives.  Through Him we can have peace and eternal life.  He made salvation possible.  I know that He loves us.  
We had Zone Conference this week.  The main topic was about the importance of Prophets and how we can be better at explaining what a prophet is and why we need prophets.  We were given a lot of great scripture references.  Working with the members was also a topic that was greatly discussed.  I also had a division with the Hermana Leaders.  I worked with Hermana Santos - it was our last division together since she heads home this change.  Hermana Rollim and Hermana Santos helped us find more people to teach.  This week was also the Birthday of Hermano Ramon.  He turned 77.  We had a great BBQ with him, his family,  ward members, and the missionaries.  The tradition here in Paraguay for Easter is to only eat Chepa and they celebrate 3 days - the day of his death, have a day of rest, and have a day to remember His Resurrection.  Other faiths do some interesting activities for these 3 days. This Easter Sunday was super speical and full of rain.  Hermana Pardo and I taught the YW.  Sure was a great experience.   I hope you guys have another great week! LOVE YOU ALL!

Hermana Alexander

Mosiah 16:8-9 
8  But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.
9  He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened, yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.

Happy Birthday Hermano Ramon!
