We have met lots of interesting people on the streets of Rosario. Below is the knife sharpening man who rides his bike around the streets sounding his horn. People come out and bring their knife to have sharpened. He goes to the states every other year to stay with his daughter in Miami. His bike was well worn and the seat was really torn up. He said he doesn't need much and saves all his money so he can make the trip to the states to see his daughter. He is hard working and smokes a lot!
Below, is a sad woman who lives in an apartment on Espana, our street. She makes a daily trip to the little store by our apartment or every other day to buy a large bottle of coke. She is always smoking and she cannot talk. She never enters the store because she is smoking. She stands outside the door and in a loud voice she mumbles something and the store clerks know what she wants. She is a prisoner of drugs or alcohol and has lost her freedom to them. This day she is dressed, usually she is in a gown. It is heart wrenching to see.
Then there is this man who has a little business selling chesse bread. He has a motorcycle and moves his business from place to place. Workin hard and providing for his family and loving life because he has a purpose.
Churros!! Below is a very nice business! The owner is leaning up against the building and chatting with 2 guys. Alan said they were very good. I don't eat from street vendors even if they have nice wheels like this chart!
And below is Rosio. She walked by our center on Mitre one day, stopped and rang the buzzer and wanted to know what we do in the building because on the outside of the building it said the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. She wanted to know what that is. She was invited in and two sister missionaries were called and she found out what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints is all about and she was baptized.
People change everyday, there is always hope for those who are seeking a Better way of Life, a Happier way of Life, an Easier way to live your Life.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. (Matthew 7:7) (mormon.org)
