Changes Accomplished (part 4 of 4)


It was great to see you guys last week! and its weird to think that it has already been a year since i first called you! it still feels like it was yesterday when i first called! but i was glad that every was there and i got to see everyone.  This week went by really fast but it was also really crazy! as you guys already know we had the changes this week, and i don´t know why, but this was the hardest changes i have gone through, i was stressed for a good amount of the week, and we had a couple of suprises popped up, but thanks to many many prayers and help it all worked out! But i was dead the last day, our last flight on thursday was at 1:30 in the morning on (technically friday) and the next day i woke up at 7 Didn´t hear the alarm and nobody woke me up and i was so confused cause no one else was in the room! but it was a good week. (and also my last changes as a secretary!!)  i am going to miss being a secretary mostly for the people that i have been around, and being able to be in contact with the Cooks a lot more, but i am not going to miss change week! 

Well other than changes this week, we really didn´t have anything exciting happen, we had another lesson with our investigator pablo but unfortunally he isn´t going to be able to come to church this week, due to work, but he really loves the church.  He recently asked us to start praying for his girlfriend to so that she will be more interested in the church cause right now she is just going for him, and we are going to try and get her more interested in the gospel.  Other than that we haven´t had much contact with our investigators.

WEll thanks for all the letters and i hope that all you guys are doing good and have a great week! 

Love Elder Jensen

Well this week has been awesome!! a ton of stuff has happened and a ton of miracles as week!  First off in the offices, on Monday i went and officially became an uruguayo!! that and i got my license so i can officially drive! which is awesome but a curse at the same time! i have had to drive everyday this week, and Uruguay is a hard place to learn how to drive stick!! we almost died like 23 times that and i had to parallel park the van on my second day in the middle of down town Montevideo and i almost died!! (from stress more than anything.) but i have spent a lot of time driving this week, and yesterday i was the taxi driver yesterday and spent all day driving! it was rough... and we missed 2 lessons we had planned due to the high amount of traffic. but it has been really fun to learn to drive,  other than that, things have kinda gotten organized due to the fact that i can drive so this week, has gone by really smoothly,  

Then outside of the offices, life is awesome!!! we found an new investigator last Saturday night, and he came to church with his wife and year old daughter.  They are soo awesome!! unfortunately they are in the other elders area but i didn´t even care cause they are so awesome and it was just a straight miracle that they even came!! he rescheduled his work to be able to come to church and is coming again this week, and already wants to get baptized! and we have just seen so many miracles this week, it has been amazing! i don´t have a lot of time to write all that happened but it was an amazing week! 

Thanks so much for everything i love and miss you all!
