We were robbed two more times. The third time he came in through the back door, and we came in right as he was coming in. My companion went running after, but he got away. We've been looking for a new apartment, and President Ayre said that finding a new apartment is now our first priority. He is just a petty thief. He stole some coins, a small adapter of mine, my speakers (but not the iPod under it) and things like that. There are few things more disturbing than knowing that someone entered into your place and touched all of your stuff.

One of the elders of the office couple 
reminded us that there is always opposition when we are in this work. The robbery must be indicative that something very good is happening. We believe that, in part, the reactivation of a family a few weeks before and our helping them to go to the temple is the cause. We've been robbed the days before we go talk to them.

We've been all over the place. 4 days out of the week involve a bus for travelling. We average 1 night a week in the Zone Leader´s apartment. We spend over half a day traveling to district meeting every week, and every Thursday night we stay with the Zone Leaders because Baradero is too far away to get to the Offices on time for a rehearsal every Friday. We've also been to the Church Area Office so we had to stay with the Zone Leaders of the Mission Office areas one night without anything but our scriptures. Luckily the Mission Home had blankets and the church has another small apartment right next to the Zone Leaders where they keep mattresses, bedframes, fans etc. so we had a mattress. Between the days we spend outside of our area and trying to find an apartment we are having little progress and success in our area.

Even still, small miracles are happening. This area is being prepared, and there will be people very soon.

Don´t ever forget that Heavenly Father loves you more than you can possibly comprehend and will do everything possible to bring you back to Him. Just listen to the enticings of the Holy Spirit and lovingly obey. It can only bring us happiness.
