Subject: this week

Hello Everyone

So this past week....

Yeah this week we had a good turn out because the family that we found or well someone gave to us as a reference, the whole family decided to go to church. they are all marked for this Sunday to be baptized. it’s a mom, dad, and 3 sons. everyone seems promising except for the dad. he lacks a little bit of faith. he believes in his church and thinks it would be difficult for him to receive an answer that he should follow another church when he already likes the one he is at. but the rest of the family seems to be liking everything. understanding and progressing. we will be going to their house tonight and is sure hope that they all still want to be baptized.

That’s really all that is happening in the teaching area. Oh but I guess I never really said the news about what happened with our mission now. We have a new rule that states.....we cannot baptize anyone with 16 years or less unless....they either will be baptized with their parents, parents already baptized, or they have been going to church for at least 3 months alone. Also, this didn’t come from our Mission President; it came from the Area Presidency. We now just have to start focusing more on families and men or well adults. I understand, but it did cut our baptisms down a little bit. Yeah, it is a change, I will be fine I suppose, I have faith! And I am praying as well for this family!!
* Actually the family fell through. We found out that they are not married and we can’t baptize the children without the parents. My Mission President didn’t allow it. Oh well, tough luck I guess!

That’s ok then working with Dan again and I don’t need to email Dan. I think I may not start until the 26th and Dan can just tell me when I get home, as I have Dr’s and Dentist appointments that next week. The only bad thing about me being home without work means no money until then! One thing though, I don’t know if I will receive my last allowance on the 15th because that would be my last day. I don’t need much because I still have the 20 dollar bill from Nan that I can use in the airport, but can I have $25???  Ok thank you a lot, and I am doing good with budgeting, I just had to ask. But I know that I will help out back home -just ask!

Oh and packages - nothing!  Maybe I will get them when I go to the mission home on the last day. If not I hope that they will just be sent back home. Oh and my favorite type of ice cream....I honestly don’t know anymore, maybe lemon, or cookies and cream, snickers, or mint chocolate chip.

We have a sister missionary here from Australia. It’s our missions first! She is actually very good looking, I only met her once. But anyway it would be nice to visit those countries.  Man I wish I would of gone out now then, if missionaries are being sent there now.  WOW! Australia and New Zealand. you have got to be kidding me!!!!

Please don’t give me a bunch of clothes. My shoe size is 11-11.5 but why?  If you’re thinking about buying me shoes, I really would like to know what they look like before you buy them, but Romeos would be fine actually,

What is planned for the open house?  I am excited to go home and watch a little bit of football. And if would love a Seahawks jersey!!!!! Don’t worry. We could move the party to be during the game if it is on the Saturday!

I looked at the weather reports for Atlanta Georgia on the 15-17 and it says that it shouldn’t be too cold like right now. Like it should of already passed. But if do think that maybe it might be delayed by a little bit going from Atlanta to Seattle. We both know that your gonna show up a little late lol. Or at least 5 minutes early at the most! Everyone with the name Jensen is always late! lol.  But I really thank you for everything!  Also, if Dr.Pepper isn’t on a deal, and Mt.Dew is, I kindly accept Mt.Dew as well lol. I can’t believe its next week!!!!!!! !!!!  But I have to go now. I love you a lot and I will talk to you soon, I do have to go, I love you and I will probably talk to you next week, on the Monday or the Wednesday hopefully!
