Last Monday we didn't know what to do.. In the end we decided to go to a place we had hiked before and go up a different way where there are some ropes you have to climb up. We didn't know how to find it so as we were going up we asked a lady who was also hiking and what followed was an awesome miracle. She didn't know either but she decided to help us find it so we walked together and talked for a long time just getting to know her! Then when we got there we invited her to go up with us and she agreed! We had a really really great time and after we finished she took us to see where she goes to play badminton also on the mountain and while we were there we found out that one of our members also goes there. And then we went down and the woman we met, her name is June, agreed to letting us meet with her and her sons! It was such a sweet experience. The Lord is always placing people in our path. It is so cool to see that time and time again as we open our mouths with everyone. 

The rest of the week was pretty normal! We are still just really working to find more people to teach! I had a little cold this week too, so that was fun! Hopefully I'll be better soon! 

The sisters had an investigator pass her baptismal interview so they will have a baptism this upcoming Friday! We are super excited for them! 

Then on Sunday our Sacrament meeting was pretty interesting! The General relief society president Sister Burton, her husband, and Elder David F. Evans all came to our ward to attend church. The Burtons spoke about the Sabbath and Sacrament and what things do we do and gifts do we give on the Sabbath to show Heavenly Father and Jesus that we love and remember them! They were really great talks! Then Elder Evans spoke about families and how husbands and wives should support each other and be equal partners! He said that their 26th grandchild was born on Saturday and his wife would really like to be there with her but she came with him to support him in his calling and talked about how wonderful it is to always have the support of his wife.

My favorite part of the day though was in Priesthood someone asked how we can help our children carry on as faithful members of the church. Most of the members here are the first generation. And Elder Evans response was really awesome. He said you have to tell them how you really feel! A lot of times we go to church together and do the things we should do, but how often do we tell our families how we really feel about the gospel. How often do we use those opportunities while we are together to share with them our testimony. Then he shared 2 Nephi 25:26 and said this is literal and we need to do these things with our children! It was really cool! 

I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that he died for all of us. I love all of you! Have a great week! 

Love, Elder Jensen

The hike!
