Elder Saavedra

Week 18 Granjas

QOTW: We grow the most out of our comfort zone, so get uncomfortable.
Well gorgeous friends I have just recieved the biggest heart shocker thus far in my mission. I am going to train a new missionary as a senior companion. Lord help me please hahaha. Elder Saavedra left to be a leader of another zone and I am left here in Granjas, awaiting with great anticipation the arrival of my new companion... we will see Wednesday who he is. But yeah this is the end of my training, More responsibility and stuff to take on now, so haha i am about to grow a flipping ton. About to get real uncomfortable hahaha i am so nervous but excited haha i dont know what to do but with the help of the Lord I can do whatever I need to do, whatever he needs me to accomplish he can help me. The lesson I learned this week was this... enjoy the time you have with your loved ones, cause life goes by to fast. We had so many fun Family nights this week because this was the last week for Elder Saavedra here in Granjas. I am so grateful for the time I had with my family and all the experiences and fun memories we have made together. I know that family is the most important thing in this life, and the mission has completely changed how i will be after the mission, how i will act, and strive every day to become more like my Savior Jesus Christ. I know that this is his church and he leads it. The book of Mormon is true, i know that with all my heart. I love this mission and all that it has done for me already, cant wait for more fun stories and more hard times, what a time to grow closer to God and learn more about how to achieve Salvation in this life.
Monday we played some more basketball, my legs have never been more tired but i feel so satisfied in playing the most celestial sport here on earth haha
Tuesday apparently I cursed at an hermana on accident, hahaha oh spanish so nice of you to twist my innocent words into cuss words. I will be more careful hahaha
Wednesday we had a fun family night with Family Alvarez. The weather was just perfect today, nice and cloudy with a constant breeze to cool us down as we walked down the streets of Colombia.
Thursday we watched a movie with our investigators and our zone which was so spiritual! The Book of Mormon movie, so good, so powerful, so true.
Friday we had a party for Elder Saavedra, oooooh cake was so good. 
Saturday another perfect day of weather and growth. My testimony grew as we taught a mother about the gospel. I know this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
Sunday was long but fun. We spent the whole rest of the day after church visiting families and saying goodbye to all the families that Saavedra has gotten to meet. 
Love you all so very very very much and I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, what a time to give thanks to our eternal God for what he has given us. God bless America and you all.
