Arroyo Seco

On Saturday, April 11th we were able to travel to the Arroyo Seco Branch to present a Mi Camino night. It took us about 45 minutes to drive there.  Our Stake President Councilor, President Reccechia drove us in his car and also our Stake Facilitator, Pilar Segovia traveled with us.  The picture below is like the car we rode in.  4 adults traveling about 80 miles an hour swerving in and out of traffic lanes in what I like to call a clown car. But we made it alive, so all is well! Argentines want to be race car drivers, ALL of them!!

The Arroyo Seco Church Building.

Branch President Gutierrez, Pilar our Stake Facilitator and 2 branch Facilitators (below).  We trained the Branch President a few weeks ago and showed him a video presentation.  A part of the  presentation showed a picture of some crops that the water was not getting to the ends of the rows and the crops were dying. And then we showed another picture of the water getting to the ends of the rows and the crops were getting watered and were green. We explained that this is what this new Self Reliance is all about is getting the water to the people who need it.  When we were walking toward the building door the Branch President came outside and stretched forth his arms and said, "the water is coming to the ends of the rows", it was so tender, it brought tears to my eyes.

The meeting was held in their chapel.  They don't have benches, they use folding chairs.  President Reccechia standing on the right in the picture below.

The Arroyo Seco Young Women's room and the Relief Society table that is in the chapel (below).  The RS table cloth was so beautiful! It was the first Branch that we have visited and we discovered that we had already had met so many of their members who had come to classes in Rosario that Alan had taught months ago.

It was a very large building for a Branch.
