Oct 28, 2013

Sorry to hear about your dad mom. but im proud that you dealt with it all so well. Its so wierd that these things happen because i can picture them. but i dont really feel all the emotions because im not there.

ok well alittle about my week. We have another investigator who will be baptized in two weeks. im stoked! his name is felipe and he is a great investigator. he can probably answer the baptism questions better than i can.we also got another new investigator that is a single mom with two kids. and she is so excited about the church because it will teach her kids about Jesus and their Heavenly Father. she told us that these kids have cousins that are atheists. and that she didnt want her kids to go through life not knowing God.  its incredible how Heavenly Father prepares people to accept his gospel.
ha ha it was another crazy week of work but everyday goes by so fast i feel like sleeping takes for ever!!! and all of my dreams are in spanish right now its really weird. but hey i learn spanish twice as fast so its fine with me:) This week was kind of boring but here is a quick run down tuesday. we had a lesson with a lady that was less active and her kids there was absolute chaos as we tried to explain the importance of reading scriptures, praying everyday and going to church. we used an object lesson and the kids loved it they were a little rowdie and it reminded me of the little boys ha ah .

wednesday.we had a family home evening planned with one of our investigators in the house of the bishop. she stood us up so we had to teach the lesson of the restauracion to the bishop the patriarch and another high priest and their wives. it went really well actually and all in the end we gave our testimonies and talked about how we knew that this was how the church was restored to this earth. we asked for references and got three!! and they were all excited about the lesson so they told us they wanted to do this with all the less active families if we can. our ward is starting to get excited about the missionary work its really cool!

thursday.we took an investigator and her kids to mutual an they absoulutely loved it. the kids learned some new primary songs and she had a good lesson with the relief society. all was good. and we had a little time after  before we needed to go home so we went and got tacos with a less active family. i get so much free food from people here... its really bad i have put on 20 pounds.... oh well fat and friendly its a really inviting image.:)

friday. i taught one of our investigators sons english this day. it was fun until they started asking me what all the swear words were... but the mother was thankful for our time and we taught the restauracion when we finished so it was really good. then we had the lesson with filipe and when we asked him if he would be baptized he said yes it was a great day!.

saturday.we helped a recent convert plan his lesson for church it was great his name is arturo. you might have seen the picture with me and all the food he told me he was going to post on facebook. ha ha and i wonder why im getting fat... but it was really good then we taught johnathan and his family about the plan of salvation and where it explains all of the little details. his mom knows the bible like the back of her hand she is awesome to bring to lessons.

sunday. yesterday was good nobody was home so we talked to caren and amelia and a few other recent converts. they are like my family here. and they talked to us about our homes and gave us some food and we explained to them why we fast. it was a good day.

and today. every monday we have tiangies like two blocks from our house and its awesome its like a huge grocery store/ black market with everything you could ever want. and we met a family that was lds that sold fruit and salads. they asked us if we wanted a little food. so we ate a cup of fruit with chilies and sugar. its really weird to eat candy or fruit with chili. but i ate it all. and i was thinking hmm this is a good snack its healthy good job elder jenson. then they gave us fried bananas with sweetened condensed milk and some type of cream and jam. not so healthy. but it tasted amazing!

that was a little update about my week hope you guys are doing ok i love you all so much. and i pray for you guys every night!. spanish is good except that all of the people try and teach me all of the slang in mexico now and if you thought kanab had a problem with slang you have no idea. but its all fun to learn. the weather is great down here. it was a little cold like 60 degrees this week. im having a goood time and lovin it cuidense mucho!
te amo
