Family, Friends and Wookies,
We Baptized Rafael and Tainah this week!!! Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!! That was an awesome Baptism . . . Rafael was cryin’ and when I asked him why he said he felt sorry for not having been Baptized sooner. He said, "I should have done this with my wife and kids when I had the chance. All I can do now is try to be an example and help my future wife to have this truth." Rafael is a fricken stud . . . I love that kid. He was so ready. How lucky am I that I got to be the person to meet him? I got to be the person sent out to teach him? And Tainah? She is SO smart. She understands everything!!! I just feel blessed this week. It was a tough week but it gave such a great result in the end . . . God must love me very very much =)
E . . . =( Unfortunately, she is kinda crazy and doesn’t want to accept the Book of Mormon out of nowhere . . . It was funny because the day before I had the feeling that this was going to happen. So when it happened it was much easier to just let it go. I feel bad because she is having difficulties in her life and won’t change. She thinks that continuing in the same path is going to help her . . . Didn’t someone say that that is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result? #Awkward...
Elder White is great and I sincerely believe that we have success because he is so devoted and focused. He’s a good freakin’ kid.
This week we had a random blessing. A kid in the Ward brought his friend to church and we marked his Baptism . . . A girl that has wanted to be Baptized for a loooong time wasn’t able to because her dad is crazy and wouldn’t let her but . . . He got sent to jail . . . #AwkwardBlessings So we are going to Baptize her! Woo hoo! The boy is Piter (Like Peeta from Hunger Games #SWAG) and the girl is Brida. If all goes as planned, we will Baptize Brida and her little brother Rian this week =)
The Zone finished this week with only two Baptisms which were of me and my companion . . . I think everyone is getting that "oh Im going to be transferred" feeling so they are slowin’ down a tooooon. It’s frustrating. I feel it in myself and I fight against it every day so I know that others are feeling it too . . . But how big of hypocrites would we be to teach "Endure to the end" and not be able to do it ourselves? Just gotta keep on goin =)
Transfers are on the 29th . . . I imagine that I will be transferred because I will have about three transfers and a half out here . . .
That’s about what I got for now. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!! Be good, be safe, hit me up soon =) LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!
Love, Elder Dylan Miles Jensen
