God is so good. It’s true. I realized this week how much God has been protecting us : )
So this week we had to pack up our house, so that they could fumigate it to kill all of our spider friends : ) The office Elders had to come and help us throw away old easy chairs, rolled up carpet, and such (all of which had become homes for the Aranas de Rincòn living in our house : ) ) and the next day Our new best friend Heber came by to fumigate (mom I don’t know if that’s how you spell it they but poison in our house to kill the bugs) The only problem is that they did it at 5 in the afternoon and when we came back to the house at 10 pm, we had 2 big problems 1. It still smelled like poison... I think if it kills spiders it kills people too, and 2. All of the huge poisonous spiders came out of their homes... and WERE NOT DEAD!!!!! We know this because Hna. Van Cott poked them with a stick.... they were much slower, but that does not cut it for me, so we grabbed our emergency backpacks (they have everything you need for 3 days : ) ) Boy, am I grateful that we were obedient and made Emergency Backpacks, because let me tell you, when your house is chock full of deadly spiders, the faster you can leave the better! We then trekked across Pudahual in bus to a part of town not highly recommended at night to the house of Hna. Nunez y Chavez (the nearest sister missionaries).
The next day when we returned to the house, we found the all of dead spiders..... well, we have been very protected, we had no idea how many or how FREAKIN' big these spiders were! Wow, God really loves us, He tamed lions for David and Spiders for us : )
¨And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he changed not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceased not to be God, and is a God of miracles.¨ Mormon 9 19. Well, I think we proved that this week : )
All is going well with Yolanda! She has a date to get married!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This can be complicated and long here in Chile, you have to go to a government building and ask for an hour to get married and usually it’s not very fast, so we are super happy that she was able to find an hour for the 5th of August!!!! And will be getting baptized the next Sunday (the 9th). This week she’s given up smoking!!!!
God is a God of miracles, and I know he is working miracles in your lives too! You just need eyes to see them : )
SED DE BUEN ANIMO!!
PS the pictures are of the spiders and when we got the ^Safe house^ AKA the house of Hna. Nuñez
