It happened!!!

An An was finally baptized yesterday!! It was a great experience! Haha I called them on Saturday night and the foster mom said she had to work and we should move it to next week.. Thus we began worrying it wouldn't work out. But we decided it was time to just do it! And so we got it all worked out so we'd just go pick them up and bring them to the baptism. Well then our ward mission leader called us and said he was at their work to pick the kids up but they weren't there and that their foster dad was going to take them:) They rolled in a minute later and it all went over really well!! She was so excited to be baptized! Her baptism has taught me a lot of patience and really to trust the Lord! 

This last week has been a really really good one! Our area has changed a lot from when we first got here.. We would go out tracting all day and we couldn't find anyone to teach and every day I prayed that we'd be able to find someone that would stick! Well over a period of 5 ish months more and more people have stuck until now we are teaching multiple people everyday and have brought a large amount of people to church! It has been a huge blessing to see it all happen! The Lord really is hastening his work and He really does answer our prayers! 

On Thursday night we got a call saying we could go up to Taibei in the morning to hear the first missionary in Taiwan 60 years ago speak. It was super super awesome! They had a lot of hard times at the beginning.. For 7 months their sunday meetings were just the 4 missionaries. Then things started happening and when he left they had about 100 people! He shared with us how much he loves this people and it was awesome.. He still has contact with some of the people he baptized then! It made me really appreciate how lucky we are now too, because they didn't even have the Book of Mormon when he was here! Also he said that the tradition of saying Good morning over the pulpit at church came from a Hawaiian Elder 60 years ago that wanted to say Aloha.. I thought that was pretty awesome! 

Hmm.. There are so many people here in this area that I love a lot! We had 7 investigators come attend the baptism yesterday and they all really liked it! Transfers are this week and I have no idea what will happen.. But We'll see! 

That is all I can think of from this week..

Oh wait there was conference this weekend and it was really good! President spoke in it and it was super awesome!! Oh and my bike computer got stolen for the 2nd time.. So I guess that is it for bike computers.. But I think I've biked around 1000 miles here maybe.. 

Have a great week everyone! I love you all! 

Love, Elder Jensen! 

Lots of Lehi!

Someone got married and gave us lots of cake and cookies.
