Hey everybody! 

Well this week has been really busy but really fun, we have been able to get out to work in the streets a lot and we almost have a baptism!! we are not sure how it is all going to work out or if she is going to get baptized here in malvin or not, but we are going to see this week,  so this week one of the super stud members showed up to church with his girlfriend who wasn´t a member, and we were just like ya!! an new investigator, and it turns out that she has been going to church for the last 4 weeks in a different ward and the missionaries didn´t ever go by here house or anything, so she decided to come to this ward, so we had a family night with her and her boyfriend, and she already wants to get baptized and everything, we just have to see if she is going to get baptized here or in the other ward but she is still a super awesome investigator! and after the lesson we had a spicy pepper eating contest... and i beat my comp from Peru!!! that was all i wanted to do, was beat my comp, but the member still beat me.... but it was totally worth it! 

Then this week, we took and elder to the airport, and there have been some problems with the flights of the missionaries that are going home at the end of the month so that is what we have been dealing with all of this week, but we were able to get it all figured out and it looks like everything, is going to turn out fine! honestly it is a miracle that 4 twenty year old guys can run the entire mission and get people home, without any major problems.  Because we have almost zero experience doing these kind of things and yet everything always turns out good.  but ya that has been our week here.  i am glad that you are all doing good and can´t wait to talk to you guys next week! 

Love Elder Jensen

We bought a an amazing giant candy bar... and i found some hipster "ray ban" sunglasses.. they're fake but had to try them out.

We shook his Hand!!!!!

Hello friends and family!!

Well before i tell you about what happened this week i got to tell you what happened last week... so litteraly 5 minutes after i finished writing you guys last week, we started getting ready to leave to go out and work, and we are just about to leave and we hear some people coming in the offices and Elder Bendar and like 3 members of the local 70 enter in the room!!!  We all probably looked liked idiots with our mouths wide open but we shook his hand!! #MissionAccomplished  So ya that was the highlight of the week!!

So ya after that this week was kinda lame! we have been busy with office work, which isn´t the most exciting thing to write about.... but we have been keeping busy... honestly i have almost nothing else to say.  We have just been getting ready for changes in a couple weeks and we have been preparing the flights for the elders that are going home after them.  the problem is that this change is only a change of five weeks, and usually it is six, so we have a lot of stuff to do like normal, but an entire week less. so we are going to hope and pray that everything turns out fine! but ya that is about all that is going on right now.  But thanks so much for all the prays and support! Love you guys!

Elder Bednar!!

[Feb 27, 2016 letter] 

Well, this week was fun! but seriously this week was crazy with all the changes and the conference that we had with elder bednar yesterday, which was unbelievably amazing!! but the problem is that Elder Bednar is coming to the offices and we are being kick out for the day, so we are not sure when we are going to be able to finish writing, but i am going to try and get as much of it as i can in these couple minutes that we have right now.  Well this week was awesome and crazy, the new missionaries came on Tuesday, and we had a conference with them and spent pretty much all day with them, and then on wednesday we were running around like nuts! we had to care of the new missionaries and make sure that them and they trainers got to the bus terminal on time, and then make sure that all the other missionaries got to the bus terminal and didn´t miss their bus, and make sure that the missionaries that were going home made it the mission home.  then that night we spent with the missionaries that were leaving which is awful! because they are super trunky and they just are ready to go home!  Then we started with the flights at 1 in the morning!! ya!! luckily this change there wasn´t as many flights in the middle of the night like last change, so that was nice.  We finished all the flights around 2 or 3 in the afternoon on thursday and we went home and started getting ready for the conference with elder Bednar! The Conference was amazing! but it was originally going to start at like 2 in the afternoon on friday, but due to flight problems and elder Bednars work, we didn´t get to start until 7:30. but it was still an amazing 2 hours!  he didn´t really have a specific topic, he kinda jumped from topic to topic, but on of the first advices that he gave us was to stop worrying about being perfect.  That worrying about being perfect often gets in the way, and we just need to do our best! and trust that God will do the rest.  it was absolutely the best! Then i learned a very valuable lesson.... only one missionary in all of the two missions got to shake Elder Bednar´s hand, and it wasn´t an assistant or some office worker.... it was the pianist...  Ugh! if only i had learned the piano better!!! tyson... keep going with the piano, you might be able to shake an apostle´s hand for it!  

But anyway we are probably going to get kicked out of the offices in any moment, and hopefully we will see Elder Bednar ;) so i will try and write you personally and send some photos later but this is all the time that i have right now.  Love you all and thanks so much for everything!!!
