WORLD CHAMPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
WOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Family and Friends,

Brasil kicked butt against Spain.  I couldn’t watch, but I for sure heard everything happening in the street.  YES!  #WIN!
This week we worked . . . A LOT . . . As usual . . . Haha.  We are working an area right now where like no one has ever met the Missionaries or even heard of the Church.  Everyone is Catholic which can makes things difficult but the majority of them don’t even go to church . . . Haha.  They just say, "I’m Catholic" and then when you ask how much they go to church they just say, "Ahhhh . . .  every once in a while".  Hahahaha.
We met a couple this week named Noel and Marilene.  They are having some serious problems in their marriage (at least they are actually married for once!!!!!) and I get a bad feeling that they want to separate.  Gosh . . . I felt like a marriage counselor at their house!  It’s just one of those pride problems it seems like.  Neither wants to back down a little bit to try to fix the problem together.  They both just kinda wanna blame each other . . . Luckily, Noel really wants help and wants to go to church and he did!  Marilene seems super discouraged.  She said that she wanted to go a lot but that morning they woke up and started arguing and she lost the desire to go . . . They just both need to be Baptized.  They need the Spirit.  They need this Gospel to unite them.  I hope that we can help them to understand that.
We got lots of new Missionaries in our Zone this Transfer!   Our new District Leaders seem to be  motivated and excited.  One companionship of Sisters got split up and they were both called to train and divide that area.  Apparently their Ward is going to divide in just a few weeks!  Those four Sisters work really hard.  Just need to mark more Baptisms.
We have six Sisters in our Zone that all work lots and our District Leaders are kinda new but excited.  I love Missionaries who don’t know anything but want to work!   June was a terrible month for our Zone.  We Baptized four people which is completely unacceptable.  I know we have the toughest Zone in our Mission, but four Baptisms is absolutely ridiculous and just due to laziness and lack of love for our Savior.  Time to get this olive tree going  =)

Rafson is still progressing and went to church with us even over his mom’s church which was really cool.  We really want to Baptize him this week but . . . I’m not positive what is going to happen.  He seems really nervous and this week is going to be hard to follow up lots because we are going to Maceió and we have to do splits and all kinds of stuff . . . We will see!
That’s about it!  I love you all so much!  Be good, be safe.  Hit me up soon!  I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!  VIVA BRASIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love, Elder Dylan Miles Jensen
