Last Friday 72 wheelchairs were donated to people in our city. They were distributed at our church and the mayor, the head of the local health department, along with other Catamarca city leaders, were in attendance. It was very touching to see these people sitting in chairs that had the name of the church - La Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Últimos Días - embroidered on the back of the seats, with other contributors.
This young man was very excited about his new chair. His parents are with him.
Here are several of the recipients of the new wheelchairs.
Another photo of the same group with a few more recipients shown.
The Church worked with the group CILSA, and these banners were at the back of the cultural hall, showing that we're working together.
Food was served at the end of the presentation and Doug was there to help along with the sister missionaries - Sisters Castro/Uruguay and Saez/Chile.
See the name of the church along with the other participants?
More wheelchair recipients. The missionary in the picture is Elder Chavarry/Peru.
Several people wrote notes of gratitude for what they received.
