This notice came from the mission office the morning of September 17, a few hours after the earthquake September 16, 2015. first it showed up in Spanish, then it came in English and made a little more sense to us.
I had already visited with Sara's friends Valeska and Eva from her ward in Vina. So we knew she was safe. They are such dear ladies to contact me and let me know Sara was ok.
