To Melo and Beyond!!!

[2016-06-18 email]

Well its official!!!  I am leaving the offices!! so that means no more saturday pdays!! that and i am leaving to a new area! So having been within 10 minutes of the mission home for the last 6 months, looks like president decided to send me as far away as possible! my new area is called Rio Branco and it is right on the border of brazil! and my new comp is going to be Elder Guerra who is also from brazil, so i am totally learning portuguese! this is going to be amazing! Literally of all the areas in the mission i think i would have picked this one, its having success, there are plenty of members, and the three missionaries that i am going to be living with are all super awesome and work super hard so i am really hoping to just jump back into the work! But i am going to be leaving for my area on wednesday and i am going to be taking about a 6 hour bus ride out to brazil! 

So this week has been nuts other than finding out where i am going.  Me and elder Peterson walked through the other mission for like an hour on monday when we went to change the oil and so i got a ton of photos! then on wednesday we had dinner with the cooks to say goodbye which was really sad, and this sunday we are going to have one final "dessert" and they are going to bear their testimony and its going to be awful! i have really grown to love them both in this time here! 

But we have got to get ready for more changes, and i have got to go, but thanks so much for the letters and i hope you guys have a great week! see you next monday!!! 

Love Elder Jensen

Elder Bio said that he could "milk" more alfajores than me... we both ate 12 and about was a tie.

Celbrating Elder Petersons one year mark with the most unhealthy pizza there is! chicken fried steak with pizza coverings and french fries....
