This week we went to go visit the Familia Chaile and it was wonderful! They have about 7 sons and 2 daughters. When they come to church they fill up half of the room! They are really poor, but frequently sacrifice meals so they can come to church. We went to go visit them this week and their unity is impressive. They do Family Home Evenings, read the scriptures together, prayer together, and you can tell they love one another. Due to missionaires before in our pension we had a enormous stack of clothes from missionaries before us. I was thinking what can we do with all these clothes? So I put all the clothes into a huge bag and we carried to the family Chaile´s house. The hermano Chaile was just staring at us and couldn´t believe we had had given him all these clothes. We also received a blessing in the end because one the daughters who has not been baptized now wants to talk to us. She is about to have her first born daughter, so we might have to wait a little while, but she is willing to be baptized! I love service and I am grateful when we have the blessing to serve.
