This morning Wayne and I went to the Chan Chan chapel and visited the Central Ward. We've been to this chapel several times, but we've never been to this ward. The group was smaller than I thought it might be. There were only a few familiar faces of people who serve with us in the temple. Carlos Rodriguez, Sister Palomino, Noe Calle, Antony Apolinario, Cynthia Garcia, Kara Diaz and her daughter. The meeting started late but it was nice. They didn't have a piano player, so Sister Mujca one of the sister missionaries played the top hand only of the hymns. The Primary children sang a special musical number, Joy to the World. It was nice.
As the members of the ward arrived, Wayne and I greeted them. It's always fun to meet the members. I gave a sister a hug and told her hello, half thinking she was Sister Carmen Leon, she looked a lot like her. Later, I told Kara Diaz this and she told me they are sisters. This is Sister Betty Leon.

We enjoyed our visit with the members of Barrio Central. They are great members of the church.

I like the following quotes from the lesson in Relief Society and Priesthood. I am posting them here as a reminder for me.
“Most of us will be quiet, relatively unknown folks who … do our work without fanfare. To those of you who may find that … unspectacular, I say, you are ‘no less serviceable’ than the most spectacular of your associates.” Alma 48: 18-19
Most of us will be quiet, relatively unknown folks who come and go and do our work without fanfare. To those of you who may find that [thought] lonely or frightening or just unspectacular, I say, you are “no less serviceable” than the most spectacular of your associates. You, too, are part of God’s army.
King Benjamin declared: “Behold, I say unto you that because I said unto you that I had spent my days in your service, I do not desire to boast, for I have only been in the service of God. And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.” (Mosiah 2:16–17.)
