Elder Rodriguez, a native of Peru, came straight from the São Paulo MTC and has been here seven months. He was probably glad to have new opportunities. He was "shell-shocked" when he first came in October, found himself surrounded by three tall American Elders and an American "casal" (senior married couple). We watched him become a true leader when given opportunities to lead out. It was fun to watch him grow. We will miss all of these Elders and wish them well!
