Hey everyone! This week was great!

Every week I sit down and don't remember a lot of what has happened during the week. This week we have walked quite a bit. Elder Jensen is a workhorse, and walks faster than me (which is quite a surprise). We've gotten a lot done, but it's been tiring. We visited old investigators, found less-actives, taught some progressing investigators, and contacted a whoooolle lot. Elder Jensen and I have both been working on talk with everyone a lot more, so we've been trying a lot to talk with everyone we can, and it's been going great! We're learning a lot.

We have a few investigators that are progressing pretty well, but they weren't able to come to church this week because of work/vacation, so that was pretty rough, but we're going to have some success here pretty soon. Elder Jensen is great and we're working hard so, we should see something soon.

Our zone is super tiny now, but they're doing great. We're excited for this transfer.

Basically, Elder Jensen and I are best friends. We get along super well, he's very musically talented and actually has the ukulele that my old comp Elder Sorenson had bought when I bought my guitar haha, so we've been having fun jamming together in the very little time we have to do so haha. We've been having a great time, and this transfer is going to be awesome. Loving life!!

Love you all!

Elder Jensen!

Hey family how are you?? Sorry I didn't write last week, things got crazy, and there was no time. But I'm doing great! This last week we had transfers, and I stayed in Plottier! And my companion left to Cinco Saltos. My new companion is Elder Jensen from Leighton, UT! We have the same time and he's great! We're going to have a great transfer together, back to another gringo! Hahaha.

This week went by quickly, but it was good. Not much happened, but we had interviews with President, and it was good. My interview was short, but nice. President Casariego is a very inspired man, and he always knows how to lift me up.

We also did intercambios with the Elders that are on the other side of the city/the other ward here in Plottier. I went with Elder Harris which was great. He's a good guy and we had fun together. In the transfers, they actually took out the missionaries in that weird, so we're going to be working a little bit in both wards for a little while. We'll see how it goes.

We're finding new people to teach, and a lot of them are families! So we're excited about that, we're definitely going to see the results of that soon.

I don't have much to say, but I'm doing well and loving life! Hope you are all well, I love you!!
