Hey everyone!!

This morning we said bye to group #2! I thought for sure this time was gonna be easier but i was 100% wrong. its seriously the most heart wrenching emotional-but so exciting experience. i told my companion that if this is any indication of how the next 17 months is gonna go im not gonna have any of my own heart left when i get home because i already feel like i have sent so much of it with these sweet latinos all over south america! its crazy to think that we are up next. im starting to realize how precious the time here is. i feel so lucky to be here in this country with these people learning so much and im trying to soak in every second because i know this is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity!
Today we got to go on a tour of Colombia because we hit 4 weeks! It was amazing we rode this gondola thing up the mountain to a Catholic montesary that was BEAUTIFUL! then we went to a way sweet gold museum! plus we got to wear normal clothes and be normal tourists! it was so fun and pretty much like a normal family vacation - except without the fam haha :( but it was such a good get away and so fun to explore!
Tomorrow i will get a latino companion and be put in a latino district with teachers that dont speak a lick of english... haha pray for me. i'm hoping i get someone super patient and talks really slow!! im super sad our district is seperating! weve grown super close over the past 4 weeks as we`ve supported each other through all the crazy feelings none of us had any idea we were getting into!
this week we were at gym playing volleyball while some of the elders were playing basketball around our volleyball game because our gym is pretty small and our district leader jumped up to slam dunk it and we heard this huge crack and the whole glass backboard shattered into a million pieces and it was raining glass for what felt like minutes! haha thankfully everyone was okay! he thought for sure he was getting sent home because President Dyer loves basketball! we`re still all a little scared for the next meeting hahah. this place isnt built for `grengos` ;) 
i love and miss you all and am so grateful for all the support and emails! have a good week! :)
