My English studies continue to go well: I was able to study with all three of my students this week. Trent studied with one of his students. I'm currently a little past halfway through the lessons with all three of my students. As we close out our lessons, I'll discuss continuing studying with them, but although English can be considered, for the focus of the studies to be on the Bible. If they are interested in studying the Bible further, we'll begin using the Searching For Truth material.

This coming week will be very busy, and very different from most of our weeks here. A group from the Palm Beach Lakes church of Christ in Florida is coming to do a campaign. We'll (mostly Trent because doing many of the things with the kids would be difficult) will be involved with several of the campaign activities. This coming weekend is also when the Pope will be in town (Friday-Sunday). The city is expected to be crazy, and we've been told to make sure we have any groceries we need for the week by Tuesday because the stores are expected to be wiped out. People are expected to come in from the countryside to see the Pope, but people from other countries (particularly Argentina where the Pope is from, but is not visiting on this trip) are expected to show up in Asuncion. One news story I read said that the crowds for his public mass is expected to be over one million people. Transportation around town is also going to be limited because they will be closing several roads during his visit. It is so sad to see so many people fooled by this false religion.
