President and Sister Ghent arrived today. It was emotional to say good-bye to President and Sister Sloan; there were many tears and lots of hugs. We had one last get together in the office with muffins and hot chocolate then loaded up and all went to the airport. The Sloan’s fly home on Saturday early in the morning. We had a staff meeting on Friday morning to introduce ourselves, the Senior Missionaries invited the new president and his wife to Sunday dinner. They had been serving a mission in Peru when they were called to come here. Their youngest son is serving in Brazil and will be coming "home" to Ecuador at the conclusion of his mission. They will be great to work with! It seems there is nothing as constant as change. We have had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful people, it is so great to be with people who are willing to go and serve.
