Good morning, good afternoon, and good night!
well It has been another grand week here in rio branco and it looks like several more to come! haha but this week was awesome! i went on wednesday to montevideo to pick up my new companion and he is a stud!! his name is elder poulson and he is from san diego california! but he is already such an amazing missionary its incredible! in the couple of days that we had together, he has been a stud at helping me! he already speaks realy good spanish for the short time that he has and is really pushing himself to learn all that he can. its been fun to see him start the mission and as we have been together i have really been amazed seeing the amount that i have learned since i was a brand new missionary and i am super excited to be working with him! we are going to have a lot of success these two changes together!
another big thing happened this week, today for the first time in my mission and 2nd time in my life i finished the book of mormon! but this time in spanish! haha but i was talking with elder poulson about it and it is incredible to see the amount of change that a book can have in someones life. i have truly come to love reading the book of mormon and in this space of 1 year and a couple months i have come to know for myself that the book of mormon is the true word of God. and it has changed my life. i am so grateful for the chance i have to be here and for the support that you have all shown. I hope you have a great week and i will talk to you next week!
Love Elder Jensen
