We found a room to rent with Hermano Cassani. We told him we would stay until we could find a place to stay. We never did find a place to stay. I lived there eleven months. We did not pay rent, but paid some money to his housekeeper for laundry etc. He was not a member, but his wife had been. She had been the relief society president, but had passed away. His children were grown, and he rented us a room
I don't remember when, but during this time, we were divided as the Pacheco Branch. Pacheco was a city next to Don Torcuato. We continued to meet in San Fernando, until after I was transferred. We continued to have success in this area. Elder Findley and I purchased bikes. We kept busy contacting and teaching. The oldest of the Apata children, had previously been baptized. We continued to teach the rest of the family, and baptized more of the daughters. However we were never able to teach their parents.

My greatest frustration was that we did not have our own branch in Don Torcuato. I use to pray for this, and count the members. We had about 60 members in Don Torcuato at the time.
