This morning Elder Small and Elder Huey got to go to “ASODIFIMO” (Asociacion de Impedidos Fisico-Motores, Inc.), the same place I went to on Wednesday. The Francoms, the humanitarian missionaries, asked if we could supply translators for this morning’s wheelchair event. Both Elders were delighted to go. Elder Small said this is the first time he’s been asked to do “real translating” and he’s been on his mission for 22 months. Elder Huey has only been in the mission for 5 weeks! Both Elders did a great job. They were a tremendous help to the SLC team because none of them speak Spanish. All full time Elders are expected to do community service work and this day of translating certainly filled the bill.

This afternoon we had another loaded pick-up of supplies and mail for the Elders in the “South” (also known as “El Campo”). We were sure stacked high and loaded inside and out.

There is a new area being opened next week with the “Translado” and we are delivering some of the required furniture and appliances for the new house there. We have the new refrigerator, mattresses, desks and kitchen utensils. We didn’t have room on the truck for their bed frame nor their washing machine. We’ll take it to them next week if we don’t figure out a way to get it out there sooner.

Our last stop was in Azua at the “Pueblo Abajo Branch” chapel. Both Azua Zones were having a joint baptismal service so it was real convenient for Hna. Johnson and I to deliver the mail and supplies to the Elders because they were all in the same place. What was really cool about that was the baptismal service. Between the two zones they are planning to have 12 baptisms this evening! Wow, that is great! The Branches in Azua are really growing. I know that President Almonte is hoping the Azua District will be made a Stake sometime soon.
