July 13, 2015

Hey! Glad to hear you’ve had a great week!
We had a bit of a slower week this week. Lots of rain so the days went by longer when we didn’t’ get invited into homes. But, we had the wonderful blessing to be able to help a woman named Ana with her groceries!  The way it works here, is when the market comes into town, you buy on that day. Well, the market came to town on the worst rainy day of the week. We were walking down the big flight of stairs and we saw this woman waiting on someone’s porch. We asked her if she needed help and she said, "no, I’ll just wait until the rain stops."  We quickly pointed out that the rain wasn’t going to stop anytime soon!  So, we picked up her bags, which were like 50 lbs each, and carried her groceries up the stairs. When Ana walked, she had a limp. We asked her what happened.  She had 4 strokes in her 50 years of life.  She was actually waiting on her brother in law to come help her with the groceries, She had been waiting for almost an hour in the pouring rain. It feels wonderful to be able to help someone in such a simple way but have a really big impact.
Our investigators were all no más this week. Pamela and Gonzalo took the family to Chillan for winter break. and Sergio and Andrea had to work a fundraiser for the foundation where they receive help with son, León. Yes, his name means LION! It’s awesome, but anyways, they didn’t have the energy to get up in the morning, so her baptism will be pushed back a week for the 25th of July! Please keep her in your prayers so that she can be baptized on the 25th!
Other than that we found a couple new people.  We will see if they want to learn more or if they were being polite to get us out of the rain
Al righty. That’s about it. Hope you have a fantastic week and keep on keeping on.
Much love,
Elder Watts
