Well this week was pretty nuts, but it was good, too. ,Unfortunately, I had to drop a few investigators this week which was really hard, but it was the third week in a row they came up with some excuse for not going to church. ,Everyone wanted to try and tell me, "No . . . I thought it was at night not in the morning. I can’t today." Yeah . . . I’ve only been telling you “NINE IN THE MORNING ON SUNDAYS” everyday for the last three weeks!!!!!!!! I straight up asked them, "Why is everyone trying to use this excuse on me? This is ridiculous. You all know exactly what time church starts." They all just kinda stared at me soooo . . . Yeah. Not going back there! #AvoidTheCrazies
Well, in other news, Elder Pereira got emergency transferred! I don’t know where he is now, but when I know, I will let you all know. I hope someday I will meet up with him again. Love love love that kid - Or man - Considering he is seven years older than me. My new Companion is Elder Augusto! He is from the Capital of Brasil – Brasilia. He is great! Waking up at 6:30 ready to go when we need to go, the whole she bang bang!
We have one investigator, Gilsa, who is the mother of a member from São Paulo. Her daughter’s name is Esteffani and she heads back to São Paulo on the 20th of this month. We finally got Gilsa to church this week and she has been reading the Book of Mormon and praying and all that. She is just a lazy (she admitted that) and doesn’t reeeeally want to change her daily habits. BUT she will! She will understand the Gospel. We are praying for a miracle. We would love to baptize her before Esteffani leaves. THAT would be awesome. #COMPLETINGFAMILIESISTHEBIZNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One funny story . . . I was talking to President about ways I can help my District. One Elder is finishing is mission and getting lazy and his companion is suuuuuuuper. . . . Never happy or excited and others have a lot of problems with obeying the rules and working hard. Just so we all know that our President understands each and every one of us better than we think . . . I was talking with him and he said in respect to one of the Elders, "I can tell you that that Elder got through high school by copying. Not by studying." Yeah. That Elder admitted that to me like a week ago! What???? That was crazy. Truly our President is called by God specifically for the Elders here. It’s pretty crazy how well he knows us even though we only see him every couple of weeks. Love love love President Gonzaga!
Sooooooo . . . The 21st of this month, I get to meet Elder Bednar and Bishop Stevenson (I think its Bishop Stevenson right? The presiding Bishop?) Suuuuuper pumped!!!!!!!!
Well . . . That’s about it for me this week! I love you all so much and you are all in my prayers! Please keep me updated and send me lots of letters =) THE CHURCH IS TRUE! Be good, be safe =) I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love, Elder Dylan Miles Jensen
