Yesterday, Ookyoung and I visited the town of Puerres, about half an hour or so from Ipiales in order to meet a new contact. Nelly López works with one of our friends in construction and had expressed her dissatisfaction with her life as it presently is as well as with her religious experiences. Last November, our friend, Óscar, invited her to attend a day of convention in Ipiales, and upon accepting the invitation, Nelly liked what she heard. Because of transportation difficulties, she isn't able to attend our Sunday evening gospel meetings in Ipiales, so we arranged to study with her in her home on a weekly basis. Sometimes we will be able to go on Saturday afternoon after she is done with work. Other weeks, we'll have to go during her lunch break. After our first study yesterday, we were very encouraged by her response and look forward to continuing our visits in Puerres. Again, we marvel at how God brings people into contact with His truth in so many different ways. He certainly knows what He's doing!
Here's the statue in the plaza in the center of Puerres.
I hope those back legs are well connected to the wall!
