Ruben Bica, Hermana Rachael Givens, Hermana Kelsey Orme, Elder Boyce and Elder Castillo. We gave Ruben his new wheelchair that Rachael had brought with her from Utah. Many miracles occurred in order to get his chair to him in Uruguay. It was great to see the joy on his face to see Hermana Rachael and Hermana Kelsey again. Both had served in La Paloma and Hermana Rachael was the one that taught Ruben and got him baptized. The new wheelchair was a distant 3rd in importance compared to seeing the visiting Hermanas. It was great to be there and see it.

We had a Branch activity at the Church so everyone could come and visit with Hermana Givens and Orme. This is Pedro Rojas who Hermana Givens taught and helped him get baptized. He loves the missionaries and especially Hermana Givens. Pedro is 83 years old and has been a member of the Church for a little over 2 years. He received the Melquisedic priesthood Sunday and the office of an Elder. He is preparing to go to the Temple on May 14th. He is very excited to go!
