This went went by really fast again! But it was a good one! Monday
night we had a fantastic lesson with J_____ R_____! We talked about Faith
and stuff and he is on date to be baptized the first of April! He said
he felt the Spirit and just so happy at church and the same thing on
Monday! He didn't make it to church and he hasn't been home nor
answering our texts so we're really nervous! But all will work out
with the Lord.

We had a lesson with some new Investigators! K_____ and E_____! After
we talked about Joseph Smith we asked K_____ how she felt and she said
"How did you know!?" Haha she said she felt something in her heart as
we were talking bout Joseph Smith! We invited them to be baptized and
they said they would as they grew their knowledge! But they weren't
able to come to church either. But it was a pretty good week! Hahah we
also had a lesson with J_______ and turns out he's a member... he just
forgot to mention that to us. But hopefully next week we will have
some great lessons to tell you about!

I loved this story we read in Gospel Principles and I wanted to share
some of it with you all.
In this story it's about a man who wants something so he takes out a
loan from a creditor and then he forgets about it and the Creditor
calls for the full amount of payment and he doesn't have the money.
And because of Justice, he must go to jail. BUT, the Debtor has a
friend who pays the debt for him!

"“The mediator turned then to the debtor. ‘If I pay your debt, will
you accept me as your creditor?’
“‘Oh yes, yes,’ cried the debtor. ‘You save me from prison and show
mercy to me.’
“‘Then,’ said the benefactor, ‘you will pay the debt to me and I will
set the terms. It will not be easy, but it will be possible. I will
provide a way. You need not go to prison.’
“And so it was that the creditor was paid in full. He had been justly
dealt with. No contract had been broken.

Our sins are our spiritual debts. Without Jesus Christ, who is our
Savior and Mediator, we would all pay for our sins by suffering
spiritual death. But because of Him, if we will keep His terms, which
are to repent and keep His commandments, we may return to live with
our Heavenly Father."

I love Jesus Christ. I truly know that he is my mediator and yours as
well. We can repent for anything. We just need to submit to his

I love you guys! Take care!

Hahaha that's a huge Surprise! I am actually kind of sad. Oh well,
we'll see him again someday! Poor Guy. I bet Conner was really sad.
Really? How early? That's crazy! It's sooo hot. Haha it's horrible. We
had a really good rainstorm a couple of weeks ago and it made my shoes
smell like wet dog and it won't go away. Haha can you look up how to
fix it? And also send me the email addresses of Ron and Brother
Hansen?:) haha I will be excited to get back into working out. Yes! I
got the Package and i love it! Thank you so much! I love you so much
Mom! I'm so grateful to have awesome parents like you and Dad. You
guys are great:) this is the last week of being a teenager... 😳 what
the heck.

This was a rollercoaster! We had some awesome trainings from a couple
of guests from the Missionary Department. They focused on Working
through the Members and working with Faith to find the elect. And I
felt like we worked so hard with so much Faith! And we had a lesson
with J______ and his Family and his kids were SUPER into the Lesson, they
read the chapter we left them with and they said they're starting to
really like it! But J_____ just looked like really sad and so we asked
him what he thought about the chapter and he said he felt like we were
trying to sell him stuff. It was really sad. But he said that he still
wanted to go to church and the kids still want to learn and go to
church. So we will just need patience and prayers so that Heavenly
Father can work with him!

Then! At church we had J_____ R______ come. It was great! He said he
wouldn't be able to come on Saturday night but Sunday morning he
called us and told us he would be coming. So we went and he seemed to
enjoy it and when the Sacrament came.. Heavenly Father just blessed
him with the Spirit. He was crying and then towards the end of the
Sacrament meeting he wanted to go up and bear his testimony! But time
ran out... but he was telling us that he believes this is the true
church and that this is the Path god wants for him! We invited him to
be baptized but he said that he wants to study more but we can make it
more of a goal!

We also are teaching a 10 year old that is in a less active family and
we taught him he Plan of Salvation and he was SO HAPPY! He was like "I
never want to die after he spirit world! I thought after you died you
just slept forever!" It was amazing. The Lord truly blessed us this
week as we worked in faith but we were trying to be humble with
whatever the Lord had in store for us! As Ben said in one of his
Letters he sent me about Humility it   Said "it's one of the hardest
attributes to achieve, but well worth the work. Once you think you
have it, you lost it" love you all so much!

Haha it is crazy how fast time goes! Haha I don't mean to be rude... but can you just send me how many weeks when I have like 5 left?:) thanks mom! I love you! I just don't want to get distracted off the work! 

Is it Snowing? Man! That's so crazy! I can't believe that! Man, it seems like all the cool weather stuff is happening when I'm gone!  Haha. I was thinking about it and I think what I want to try to do is take the fire science classes and get my AEMT because then it's a pretty solid job and i can make it work with school. Like what we were saying before.. get my Emergency Services degree or something! Since I already have my EMT Mr. Sholly (the emt instructor) said when we get back from the missions we just sit in a couple of times during the emt class and we can get it back and get our AEMT. But I think that's what I want to do while I work somewhere and save up money. I had thought about asking JIM at fit for ten if there was something I could do there for him or try framing until I finish the fire science and AEMT. I don't know.. what kind of job do you think I should try for until I can finish the FIRE SCIENCE and AEMT? 

That's GREAT! How much does it cost? Hey.. maybe I could get a Job there if they want someone over 18 that can communicate in Spanish. HAHA I forgot about my birthday. I can't believe I'm 20. Weird. Haha I can't act like a kid! Well that ended a while ago. Haha. I love you mom! Thanks for everything you do for me! Seriously you help me a ton! Greatest mom ever! :)

Love, Elder Jensen 

P.s. You can reply back to my questions with your suggestions anytime and I can think about it and study it out in my mind. Thanks!
