Week 39 Much Much Better

Elder Seville and I with the sister missionaries heading to a service project.
This week was just pure fun. At first, Elder Sevilla and I were not being very patient with one other. But, on Tuesday we worked it out. We had a good meeting with our zone leaders and it has been so much better with him since. We talked in depth about our feelings,  how much joy both of us feel teaching the gospel in Honduras! We found common ground. We have had so many gospel discussions and lessons with investigators this week I cannot even count how many. During the week, both my companion and I got sick with stomach aches, but we prayed and prayed for us to get better so we could visit with our investigators. Of course, Heavenly Father blessed us and we felt better and we were able to keep all our appointments. 

One Wednesday I had a lot of fun. I had interchanges with my zone leaders, Elder Johnson. This guy is awesome. For start, we have the same first name and practically the same last name. But, his attitude and his work ethic is so inspiring, plus he is so much fun to be with. 

Each day this week I have been able to explore the beauty of Honduras and the green that covers it. I wish you all could see it, man it is just spectacular. I love it here. It is has been pure happiness for me to get the opportunity to come here and spread the gospel and teach others. 

I would like to leave a thought from General Conference with you. I got to watch it in English, which I loved and I took about 7 pages of notes. I would like to share something I learned from General Conference, a little bit every week, starting today. Dieter F Uchtdorf said : "The spirit can invigorate our minds and bring us hope everyday. And that our Heavenly Father sees us who we are, and who we can become." That is so true and I know that as long as we live worthily to have the spirit with us always, we can do anything.

Love you guys so much and I am enjoying my time here in Honduras. My companion is good, my area is good, and last of all, my mission is good. See you guys next week.

Les quiero mucho,

Elder Jensen

P.S. I took some money out of my emergency account to get new USB. I did have a back up of my mission photos on my camera, so don' t fret. Also, I wanted to help out a family here in Honduras. They have done so much for us and they did not have any money to buy a birthday cake for the their daughter's birthday. I hope that was ok. I won't do that very often. Oh...and I would love a CTR ring for Christmas, but in Spanish HLJ.
