We left Humberto with Cristina for a about a half hour to drop some stuff off at the Zone Leaders. When we returned, Elder Peterson gave the daughter a Book of Mormon and invited her to read it. She said she liked to read so we will see how she does. We are going back this week so we hope we have some success.
One of our favorite activities was going to the Zone in La Costa for Chilean Hotdogs. They are big hot dogs that include tomatoes, guacamole and lots of mustard, mayonnaise and ketchup. They were good. Renee really enjoyed hers. I enjoyed all three of mine.
Thursday was an interesting day as we started with a trip to La Costa again to take the nurse to give flu shots to the missionaries. When we got there, the doctor that attends to all of the missionaries was there to help. Both the nurse and the doctor are very friendly and supportive of the missionaries. After the shots were completed, I asked the doctor where she lived. She said she lived in El Pinar. I mentioned that we were going to have a Capilla Abierta (chapel open house) on Saturday and invited her to come. She readily accepted. The nurse then asked if she could come also. She lives quite a distance from El Pinar so I did not directly invite her. But it was neat to see their enthusiasm.
Well, the night of the Capilla Abierta, the doctor came. The nurse could not come because she had to help her family. Renee and I accompanied her as the Sisters gave her the tour. It starts with the picture of Christ and follows through with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Apostacy, and Restauration of the Gospel by Joseph Smith. It was really enjoyable to bear our testimonies to her. She took another Book of Mormon and we expect her to read it. We are optimistic that we can teach her more.
Another thing we did last week was go to Florida to look for housing for another missionary couple that will be coming down next month. This included visiting several houses in Florida to try to find one that is suitable. We have some good options and plan to go up this week to finalize it with them.We continue to stay busy with all of our little jobs. It seems we are either fixing an apartment or helping some missionaries all of the time. We really enjoy it. They highlight for us is bearing our testimonies. We are so grateful that we know that the Savior has restored his Church on the earth again. The blessings we receive from Modern Day Prophets is tremendous. We want you all to know that we know it is true. We are thankful for all or our friends and family. Thank you so much for your support.
We love you
Gordon and Renee
