I could write a book about this week and it still wouldn't be sufficient to sum it all up, but I will keep it short and sweet:
we spent the week saying goodbye to everyone form here that hna wing wanted to, and Thursday morning I dropped her off at the airport, I was with some of the other sisters that afternoon and get a call from the zone leaders saying ¨um we´re really sorry but you have to be out of your house tomorrow.¨ um WHAT?? my heart literally just sank because I knew that meant they were going to be taking me out of the area as well. so I spent a lonnng sleepless night packing up the whole house (missionary houses have so much crap), and the zone leaders got there in the morning to move everything out.. which left me literally homeless but luckily I called me sweet pensionista in tears telling her everything and she said ¨what are you talking about, you always have a home here!¨ so I have been staying there since Thursday with another sister that is heading home today and didn't have a companion. 
I am so emotionally drained from having to say goodbye to everyone here so suddenly, leaving the wedding and 3 baptism plans that we have in the next couple weeks kills me. but President called me last night to explain the whole situation and assured me that the elders who will be coming into open the area will be super good, so I'm just trusting in that!
I am heading to Potosi, its even further from where I'm at now, I will be the sister training leader for the sisters out there, the cool part is that with this transfer I will have gotten to know the whole mission! its about 3 1/2 hours from here in taxi, I´ll hopefully be heading out tomorrow, but that city is known for ¨strikes¨ and right now they aren't letting anyone out or in unless you want to risk it and run... hahaha it will definitely be an adventure. 

story of the week: there´s lots of houses here that are made out of ¨adobe¨ (I don't know if that's a word in English?) but its just basically like mud and on Tuesday we get to one of our investigators house and the whole thing was just a pile.. it was one of the saddest things I have seen.. we helped them clean up what they could and for now they are just living in one little room that's still standing :( so grateful for literally everything!

I love you all, thanks for all the support!
