Well last week I mentioned that my companion had been struggling. So we went to the temple on Tuesday and he has done a lot of praying and has decided that it is time for him to go home. We will be finding out today what day he will be leaving this week. So by the end of the week I will have a new companion or I might get moved to a new area. It will be an interesting week to say the least. 

The highlight for this week was the ward council had asked us to contact a lady named Twyla. She had previously met with missionaries in the past and they wanted us to go check on her. So we did and right as she answered the door she said "I have so many questions!" She asked amazing questions about God, the Holy Ghost, the Book of Mormon, Prophets and more. They all led perfectly into the restoration. So we pretty much taught her all of the restoration just by answering her questions. At the end she asked "Well how can I know for myself that this is true?" Which was awesome! She is so prepared and we were able to meet with her again on Saturday and she said that she has been praying a lot and really feels like this could be the church for her. She has so much faith. We have another appointment this week and she has offered to have us over for dinner this week as well.

Being a missionary gives us such an amazing opportunity to get to know people in a setting that no one else really gets to see. It is a privilege to get to meet the humble and meek in the world and watch the gospel turn them from good people into faithful saints, truly "the salt of the earth".

Thank you all for the support that you guys have given me. I definitely would not be the person I am today if it was not for you.

Make it a good one,
Elder Jensen
