January 23, 2012

We have finally found some time to bring this more up to date.  We have pictures of a p-day with the elders out at the lake which is just outside of Cruz del Eje; there were horses and cattle just grazing and Norece and I were able to walk up to one of them and pat him; the elders were quite jealous.  A picture of a local fruit and vegetable vender; the Elders who have been able to bless our lives as we have tried to get settled and learn about some of the Saints here in our area;  Sister Yolanda, 85 years old just got baptized on Saturday the 21st and was so touched with the spirit.  She has been searching for the truth for a long time and as had alot of questions for the Elders to answer.  But when she received the Gift of the Holy Ghost on Sunday she was so emotionally touched that she just wanted to sit there for awhile.
In the neighboring community Capilla del Monte where the Branch President lives there are many saints that desire to come to our Branch meeting but can't afford the bus fare, so President Donoso has been holding meetings in Capilla for the last 3 Sundays; the building they have found to hold these meetings in is shaped just like a big guitar.  It is working for now until a better building can be found.  There will be 3 people baptized this Saturday in Capilla in the river so that ought to be a great experience for those saints.   We love all of you and send our love.  We are doing Great!!
