On Friday we had Elder Golden of the 1st Quorum of the Seventy come speak to all of the missionaries in our area. That man is incredible. I hope he speaks in conference in a few weeks. I learned SO much from him and you could just feel the spirit the entire time. I was way bummed when his hour was up. I could have listened to him for days just expounding on simple gospel principles and showing things in a new light. Wow. You guys will really have to go through my notes one day. (because I don't have nearly enough time to write it all out)
We taught a lesson to Chris this week (he's the flaky one) But this time we taught him AND his wife with Brother Merrill in our ward. They are so prepared! And I'm not worried about him flaking out this time because his wife is in on it too and we all know how much better women are at commitments than men ;) But I'm really so excited for them to come to church on Sunday. We're stopping by his home on Saturday evening and teaching another lesson- and making sure they're still planning on coming to church on Sunday. I have a lot of faith that he and his family are ready for this. They all said yes when we invited them to be baptized... not we just need them to sincerely investigate.
This last week felt really long with my p-day not being until Wednesday this week. We did have a new missionary/ trainers meeting last week as well as an exchange... and one more exchange later this week. But the temple was incredible! I absolutely love the way I feel when I'm there, it makes me never want to leave.
Not too much else happened this week that sticks out. Most everyone else is the same. My companion and I get along so well and we teach really well together. I hope I get to second train her and stay here another transfer... I'm thinking about putting a down payment on a house out here. I've been living here long enough ;)
Well, I love you all. Thank you for all of your emails, letters, packages, and encouragement. I have the best support group ever! :)

p.s. I hope people are going on my blog to admire all of Jensa's hard work... and look at all of the pictures I take ;)
