MAY 15, 2017

This week was pretty good! We have something that we are starting to
use more with online proselyting! We now can Skype people during the
week to do more daily contact with the people we are teaching! It's
great! Because now people don't have to dedicate 2 hours to have us
over or going out with us! Everything is so much more effective and
easier for them and us! Truly this is the new way the Lord will do his
work! :)

We had a good lesson with J_______! He came into the Visitors center and
we could tell he was a little frustrated. He just opened up about how
he was frustrated that our church spent so much money on the temples
and church buildings and why we didn't spend that much money on the
poor. We explained to him that we give the very best for the Lord. We
shared with him the story about the woman who anointed Jesus with the
very best perfume and how his disciples asked Jesus why he was ok with
it. He responded "why you freaking out? She's just trying to do
something nice for me!" J______ left with peace of mind that we always
give the very best to the Lord. It was great to see his questions get
answered! (Also, J______ said that he wanted to go with us to another
Lesson! 😂)

Transfers was last week and me and Elder Parra are staying! Now
there's like 30 people in our zone! It doubled! Haha. I read the story
about the Liahona. I love it so much! There's so many parallels that
you can make to our life (about the commandments, the Holy Ghost, the
apostles and prophet) they all are to guide us!

Nephi tells us what happens as we follow the Lord
"16 And we did follow the directions of the ball, which led us in the
more fertile parts of the wilderness."
We will receive so many blessings as we follow the lord! We will truly
be lead to the richest blessings that we have in our life :)

I love you all!  I invite you to look for the guidance of the Lord in
your lives!

Hahaha it was great to Talk with you all! Not going to lie, it's
really weird to talk with you guys because I know you exist.. hahha
I've spent most my life with you all.. but the only contact we have is
through Email! And it's super weird just to talk to you all again! But
it was good. :) ever since I realized how close everything is and how
I needed to plan out my future it's gotten a lot harder. It's been
harder to stay focused and not think about the future too much.. but
it's also something that's necessary! Hahha I need to think about it
but I just have to find a balance. Because 6 months is still a long
time! It surprised me how big Austin is! Because all I remember of him
is that he was just a little baby, but now he's like a toddler. Yeah
me too! The church building I was at is almost exactly the same as the
burton lane chapel! It is? That's good! Man, I wish I could remember
birthdays! Hahaha I can remember names really well... but birthdays..
nope! Man, that's awesome! Before you know it they'll be teenagers!
Hahaha it's all done. It doesn't feel that long ago that I was doing
it! They'll probably be getting their calls soon huh!?

Yeah there is definitely pros to coming to Arizona. I think that I
will use Spanish a lot more than Cebuano.

Also could you send me my UVU number? I'm sure I will need it so I can
look into classes. I love you too mom!

I'll talk to you soon! If you could send me some ideas of eating
healthy stuff I would love to read them! Low fat, high protein! :) I
would love that! Thanks:)

This week was crazy! We had an awesome meeting with someone from Salt Lake. They announced that we are NOW approved to use Facebook hahaha we were all being disobedient and President didn't even know lol. So now we are encouraged to teach investigators through messenger and have daily contact with them (group messages with members or doing skype) We haven't had tons of success but we're working on it.

On Tuesday we had a lesson with an investigator who doesn't have a
husband so the rule is that we have to have another male with us. So
we called like 10 people from the Branch to come with us and no one
could. And we joked around about bringing J_____ so we have been
teaching for a while, then we check our phone... and J______ called us like 2 times! Hahah so we took that as an answer and called him! He came out and helped us teach the Plan of Salvation! Hahaha it was awesome! He was testifying like "Hermana everything makes sense, this is the church with the right authority" and like "hermana this church is different, they treat everybody like family" hahaha it was awesome! Afterwards we prayed with J_______ and he asked God which day he should be baptized and he decided on June 3rd! Yay! He's going to be so great!

Also... last night we were going to have an amazing lesson with a
family we have been working with and we were going to have a sweet
lesson with them... but then everything just went downhill... their 2
year old starting stepping in chicken poop, then the dog starting
eating the chicken poop... then the kid starting hitting the chickens
with a metal spoon... the he starting like pulling the chickens around
by the tails... then the rooster pecked the little kid like right next
to his eye!He was soooo lucky it didn't get him in the eye. So they
went to the emergency room. And so Satan did his job! It was going to
be an awesome lesson :( But we will get them next time!

Have a great week everyone! I love youuuuuuu!

I was thinking about where to live..
probably the best thing for me would to save money and live with dan
right? Eventually I would want to live down there but probably when I
have more money saved up and stuff. If dan wants me to, i would live
with him. How far away is it from UVU? Also, will I just borrow like
one of the cars until I can buy one or am I probably going to do
public transport? :) so that's what I think... what do you think?
(Told Jordan about how we spent the day at the HAFB airplane museum.. the whole family.)
That's so cool. That's like one or the things I miss is just spending
time with the family. What are some things you want me to look up
about UVU? I really don't know what to do. Hahha should I look at
prices... classes? Austin talks now? Hahha what the heck. Hey could
you talk next week at 3 o'clock? Our time. President said 30-40 mins
this year :/ oh well... Obedience brings blessings. Oh yes! I already
have an appointment for the scan May 11th and then I will tell him to
get my scans done before June 30th! Thanks mom! For all you do! :)
I'll send a pic of the engrown toenail. It's better now... just
infected. Hahha I got a antibiotic. It's just hard because we're out
all day sweating and walking so it doesn't really get a rest! But I'm
just going to try to take real good care of it. How's beck doing?
Today at Walmart I bought 36 eggs for 1.84! Ahhhh yeah! And Avocados
were on sale! Can't wait to hear back! Time is going so fast. But I
love that I'm changing... as my mission goes further and further I see
my patriarchal blessing coming true about the time during my mission.
I know this church is true! I know that Joseph smith truly was a
prophet. And "Save Jesus Christ himself, he has done more for men's
Salvation than any other man." I know that the three witnesses really
did see the plates and this is the Lord's Restoration and we will all
continue to be a part of it, if we choose. I love Heavenly Father and
I love this gospel. I don't know what I did to be able to be blessed
to be born into it. Thanks for choosing to follow the Spirit mom :)
Jose has a baptismal date! Patience does work! Hopefully now he can
just stay true to the word of wisdom and law of chastity! 😁

Hey mom! This week I spent a lot of time praying thinking and Fasting
and I feel like if it's possible I should go to UVU this January of
2018.  I feel strongly about it. I was thinking for jobs I could get re
certified for CNA and find a job down there and just apply for all he
scholarships and grants I could! Would it be possible?   What do you
think mom? I don't know what I want to end up doing but something in
the medical field. So right now I think the best I can do is work as a
CNA somewhere. Email me back and I'll be getting on around 4 to look
at Possibilities for scholarships and see the costs at UVU! Love you

Elder Jensen
