When it rains it pours! So much has happened this week! The mission is officially divided and we got to meet the new president and his family! I´m really excited to be the pioneers of a brand new mission! 

This week has been a super sad one because on Thursday the family that lived in front of us, the Bianchini´s moved to Paraguay. It was hard to say goodbye because I had gotten so so close to them. They basically felt like family. So we had our last dinner with them. My companion made tacos, the food was so good but the situation so sad! 

And a small but grand miracle happened last Monday. After we had finished emailing we came back to our apartment, and we found that we had no electricity. None of the lights would turn on! And it was already dark. We had no idea what to do. The family (The Bianchini´s) that lived in front of us had already moved out of the house in front of ours so we were completely alone. We called the owner of our apartment who is also a member in the ward but he wasn´t answering his phone. At this point we were super scared because it was dark, we didn´t have any form of light besides our cell phone, and its a little dangerous at night. My companion turns to me and asks, "what do we do?" And I replied, "Let´s pray." So we said a frantic prayer and not ten minutes later the parents of the member who owns our apartment come through the gate and the lights magically turned on. We came to find out later that they had done nothing to turn the lights back on and  had no idea that we had been trying to call their son. They had just come by to take care and feed the dogs that are in the yard. What a great miracle and answer to our prayer, that we were able to sleep that night with electricity and lights and that the owners of the house were able to come by and give us comfort and help with the situation. Good is so good, The Church is so true!
