Elder Saavedra

Week 30 Biserta

Well first off hello hello everyone... we had transfers. I hate and love transfers. It is basically like starting the mission over again but this time with a little more spanish and a little more confidence. It is really hard, i am starting to learn why people say missions are so hard. You leave everyone you have ever met in your life, and in this case leave the language you have spoken... and teach about the savior jesus christ. What a privelage, what a challenge. i am so grateful for it.
So i got to lug my 3 bags and 3 backpacks and guitar through a bus terminal and then as we were loading some of the other missionaries bags on a bus, i loaded one of my big ones. not thinking anything of it after the bus driver says, this bus is going to Tulua (my destination was Palmira, hours away haha). So i was dorking around speaking english with one of my buddies elder ruff, when the bus took off. I said in a calm voice, hey my bagggggg. So hahaa i will get that big boy back in like a week or 2. But its all good i packed the essentials in my bag that stayed with me: blowdryer, garments, and shirts. So a great lesson to pay attention haha.
This new area is one of the biggest in the mission, and for some reason the house i am in is soooo nice! super big and spacious! love it! My new companion is named Elder Lindo, or elder cutie in translation haha he has a ton of time and will finish his mission is 12 weeks. I am expecting a time of growth this tranfer, trials and difficulties.. but i know that with faith god can help me to become the missionary and person he wants me to be. 
The mission is the best decision anyone could make, the chance to walk side by side with the savior and teach about him who saves us all.... there is nothing better. I love it. Love you all have a fantastic week! happy valentines day out there take it easy now ya hear!
sorry no photos, my cables and stuff are in the bag that is in tulua haha LoveElder Anderson
