July 22, 2013

Its a beautiful thing that I can read that in spanish just shows how amazing of a place the mtc is. I have learned a lot in the past week and you would have laughed in my attempt to use spanish in our investigator lessons.

 But i have learned the gospel so much better than if i would have served an english mission. Learning spanish I have had to turn to the lord over and over out of frustration. but i have read my scriptures more thoughtfully and studied harder than ever before. this mission is definitely where I am supposed to be. which is amazing seeing as just over a week ago i thought I had made the biggest mistake of my life coming out here. Last night was one of the most spiritual experiences of my life. If you can find "the Character of Christ" by David Bednar WATCH IT!!!! it was the Most spiritual devotional i have ever seen. it is a devotional Elder bednar gave the mtc two or three years ago and I was almost in tears. 

Also I have been singing with the choir I sang tenor the last time i went and it was awful. tell derek to keep practicing because they love the people who are musically talented here. Our zone was gifted with some good players. none as good as derek though. tell him to check his email in a little while.

 I have had the wierdest dreams here. most of them are in spanglish and it is really weird because i remember all of them so vividly like in one i had a get to know you conversation in my slow spanish it started out De donde es? then the lady responde Yo soy de ciudad de mexico. y tu? i said yo soy de kanab utah. stuff like that happens all the time in my dreams because my head is always spinning with spanish here. also warning to Future derek in like two years stay away from the refried beans your room will smell terrible that night and that is a promise. I have had trouble spelling in my notes also. like i never put the ph in prophet its always profet. and is is usually es in my notes its pretty funny. So how about that game of golf muy impresante! you are going to be shooting par when i get back. Just so you know letters during the week are pretty sweet to get although this one elder, elder speth gets like 5 letters every day. its loco. so whats every one up to back at home i miss you guys but im glad to be here. you are such a good family to have at home. i bet there is a lot more food there now. derek needs to pick up the slack. and my prayers are with you in spanish... which i'm pretty sure is twice as spiritual as ingles.

ok that was a little harder to read but I also have the primera vision memorized y el proposito. and i would love to have have another t shirt and a pair of basketball shorts. we are stacked on candy in our room. the 4th missionary would be nice to have. and have you seen the talk by bednar?
cactus cooler has become my nuevo favorito drink. and oh yeah i got written up to my branch president today for leaving my back back in the main building during a meal. i though we couldnt have them in the cafetirea only.. oh well wont do it again. but normal food like chips and soda are loved in our room but what ever you send will be graciously received love you guys

did you cry cause i teared up pretty bad !its so amazing and that thing in either is pretty interesting too. you and mom are such a great examples of character of christ. we are lucky kids to get raised in this family.

te amo
Love you
Elder jenson
