Jan 20, 2014

well this was quite a week. and it all started monday. i felt a little sick all night. we taught one lesson but i wasnt super focused. we went to the house a little early. i went to bed and ended up sleeping two hours.

i woke up at about 2 and didn't sleep more than ten minutes at a time the rest of the morning but at 6 30 i said a prayer and told my Heavenly Father that i was going to need a little bit more help this week and then i went and did exercise.  i prayed i little while later that he would help me to focus on my work here. and you know what that is what we did this week. we worked.

 tuesday i was in divisiones with my district leader and we did work and taught a young less active the importancia of the church for two hours going back and forth between scriptures and comments it was really a great talk. then we had to go home because it was late.

wednesday was equally chido elder preciado and i had like 5 lessons that day and i feel like he is starting to really grasp the importance of our work.

thursday one of the recent converts in the ward had to get a surgery this day so we went over to his house and talked to him about the ways the lord could help him heal fast and well it was a spiritual lesson and i felt really good about it. we also taught a new investigator who when he showed up to church sunday asked the president what he had to do to become a missionary. he is really excited about the church and has been a blessing of the week.

friday we had a fun day too, we tore down a house it was awesome that old wood house i was telling you about isnt there any more we took care of it with hammers crowbars and sheer man power... mostly on the part of elder ioane ha ha but we worked on it friday and saturday.

saturday we played soccer in our church clothes and it was a blast i tore my pants in the crotch. ooops it was a small tear so i can fix it. but we are teaching a family of less actives and one of the kids looks like my long lost brother. i need a picture with him so i can show you he is a little version of me big ears and all ;)

sunday. the blessings and happiness continue. we showed up at the church and 12 of the less actives we visited in the week showed up the attendance was around 70 and its amazing to see the blessings that we have recieved as missionaries in this rama. also i saw the last 4 minutes of the 3rd quarter of the seahawks game. i miss football so bad. but i know i need to focus right now.

today we had a zone activity and it went great. we had an obstacle course that was way sweet and then we played soccer my team lost once because we got worked by the hermanas but we had and amazing time and ate tacos. oh and our zone leaders bought us dp i was in heaven.

this was a huge growing week for me i still am not an amazing spanish speaker nor can i persuade people with the way i talk but i know that when i need help from my heavenly father he can make me a great tool in his hands. i was in a state of weakness to start the week but when i said a prayer and asked for understanding i understood the phrase be patient in tribulation and if you are and dont lose faith you will receive a reward. i saw a little bit of my reward this week in our work. but i know that the blessings i will receive after the mission i cannot see right now but i know they will be there.

im loving my mission wouldnt change my decision for anything right now love you guys so much and have a great week i mean might as well it is starting with MLK day and a day off from school !

con mucho amor elder Jenson
