During the months of March and April, I had the pleasure of going to California for a month. One month before I went to her place, Virginia Ahumada gave two bundles of leaflets to a young man named Mario from Honduras. He brought them to his friends and to his church. They were so enthusiastic about it that they sent some to a priest in Honduras and elsewhere in South America.
I went with Virginia to meet Jesus Mendez (see photo), a contact of hers. He is a distributor of religious articles and owns his store in Los Angeles. He is servicing many stores and churches all over the town, so he knows many people. We left him 50 bundles of leaflets at his store which he wants to spread and he subscribed for 4 years.
The day before, we also distributed 20 bundles at the San Conrado Mission Church. Also we met a nun at Immaculate Conception Church, who is the pastoral director and took 2,000 leaflets and she wants to come to the Eucharistic Congress in Quebec City. 40,000 leaflets were distributed for the last 2 weeks in Los Angeles: with a total of 200 subscriptions gathered.
Sarah Hill from Sherman Oaks in California is a great distributor of our leaflets. She came to our Congress last year, and left very enthusiastic. She distributes leaflets wherever she goes: at rallys, protests, and during door-to-door visits. Connie Arnaldo has been doing a lot of apostolate in her area as well, making many new contacts and spreading many leaflets. Congratulations and many thanks for the beautiful apostolate work being done in California!
