Year Mark

Well this week was pretty sweet! We just did missionary work and the usual! On Tuesday after District meeting we went on exchanges with the zone leaders. I was with Elder Lindahl and we had a super great time! I really like Elder Lindahl a lot.. He's a great guy! Great friend.. Any way on Wednesday I woke up early at there house and went to the train station to go with some other Elders to Taibei for a few meetings and that was fun too! 

Then on Friday it was my year mark on the mission!! Haha it was a pretty interesting day! Elder Tan had an investigator from before getting baptized in Taibei and so he went with a zone leader in the xinzhu zone to that while I stayed with some people in Xinzhu and went finding! Well after the baptism it was already pretty late and they ended up having to take the train because their ride fell through. So I ended up staying in the Xinzhu elders apartment for a surprise exchange because the two others didn't get home early enough for us to bike home! It was quite an adventure!! 

In other news the week here was pretty average! The family is just hanging on by a thread.. We are doing everything we can to get them progressing but they are not super interested right now..

I will share a miracle or two from this week though:)

We went to meet with this girl who was a referral from the Xinzhu Elders and we got there and were waiting for a few minutes and she ended up not coming! But we started talking to this guy sitting at a table at the 7-11 there and he told us that he loved Jesus. We invited him to sit down with us and we taught him a quick lesson and invited him to be baptized and he accepted! He was one of the coolest people I've ever met out here. He looked like a full grown man but he was 14. He was smoking and he likes to rock climb. He seemed to have a had a pretty tough life but he looked like he had things pretty under control and he was the nicest kid ever. No one hear hugs and he just gave us big hugs when he left! Just a couple minutes with him and we were like best friends!! 

The Lord puts people in our path! We got stood up but that great kid came out of it! 

Also I was feeling a little down because we don't have many people progressing and have lost a few people.. But in church the lesson was about being great and we learned that a great person is someone who does the little things. Often unnoticed but in the end they really will have had a big impact on people. It gave me a lot of encouragement to just keep giving it my all and doing the little things cause in the end they will have a big impact! 

That is all for this week! It has been a great first year out here.. The Lord really takes care of us! I love you all! Have a great week:) 

Love Elder Jensen!
