Wow it has been a wet week here in Latacunga. It started out hailing ice the size of marbles and then poured for a few hours. Luckily there is very minimal flooding here… the streets are prepared for that sort of thing. Then again this Sunday we walked from a lesson to a member´s house and it started to downpour. We could have taken a taxi but I figured it would stop in a few minutes and we were pretty close. Boy, how I was wrong. basically once we got to the house we were so wet the member told me I looked like a pollo and drove us home to change. Tender mercies.
I have witnessed such poverty and humility here. This week the church organized a donation to give to the people suffering on the coast. Our ward was in charge of Flour and oil and each member was to give 2kilos of flour and 1/2Liter of oil. We had a lesson with María who is such a sweet humble mom of 5. After the lesson she gave us her tithing (on the $7 she made that weekend) and a bag with 2kilos of flour and 1liter of oil. I just about cried. Miracles come when we put the Lord first, I just know it!
