Well this letter is going to be pretty dang short because our week was SUPER short!!!
On Tuesday we had transfers!!! Two of the Sisters who were in the middle of their training got called to trained! One of them was crying . . . Haha . . . I don’t know if she was nervous or excited or what. But in any form, they will be great. Our Sisters are AWESOME =) We also got a kid who took the District Leader place in Grageru 2. He served in Japan for fourteen months and then got sick, stayed home for a year and a half and is now at a year and seven months out here. His name is Elder Mechaileh and he is SUPER legit. Just calm and down to earth. It’s really easy to see that he is more mature and has a better grip on the work than a lot of people. I would imagine serving in Japan really humbled him. Anyways, I absolutely love the kid =)
After Tuesday, we had two normal days to work which was good and then on Friday morning we got a call from the Mission Secretary telling us to go to the Stake Center. Turns out that the church has this Humanitarian Program teaching doctors and nurses how to do Neonatal Resuscitation (I don’t think I spelled that correctly) and they needed help. Not teaching but just setting stuff up and organizing . . . Haha. It was fun and they had two Americans there from Utah - Elder and Sister Wilcox who were absolutely awesome. It was also nice to just speak some solid English for once!!!! But we basically lost all of our time to work on Friday and Saturday because of that. But it’s all good cuz Elder and Sister Wilcox took us out to a Churrascaria afterwards!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!
Izabel wasn’t Baptized =( She says she wants more time but I really don’t know what else she is waiting for! She is sooooo ready!!! We will see what happens.
We also met a girl this week named Monice. We had felt like we needed to knock doors on her street for quite some time. So we finally did and then had to leave. Then the next day, I felt the same thing so we went back and met her and her mom. Turns out they have family that are members so they thought that they were referrals! Haha! But Monice came to church super late and stayed for like five minutes. The bus took forever and then because of how late she got there she had to leave like right away. We asked her why she came if it was so difficult (because people normally don’t do that, not because we were sad she did it) and she just said, "Because I promised I would! So here I am!" She is legit and already reading the Book of Mormon and all that good stuff =)
The church is true!!!!! I sure do love you all!!! Be good, be safe, please keep writing! I LOVE YOU!!!
Love, Elder Dylan Miles Jensen
