This week has been awesome! We have been walking (because we are short of miles) and talking and preaching the gospel. Even though not very many people want to listen to us, we have had some very spiritual encounters with people and have been able to bear our testimonies.

We went on exchanges this week and Elder Garrison came to Harrisonville with me. That day our 1st counselor in the bishopric asked for our help moving a recliner. We said yes and then it turns out that we were driving to Overland Park (about 50 min away) and bought a chair from a lady and then took the chair to an older lady in Harrisonville who needed a chair replacement. She couldn't close the recliner once we got it open for her. So we had to construct a footstool out of a wooden chair and some blankets. It was fun. 

We had a good district meeting although I had to give a training about setting goals. It was so much fun... I basically just used scripture stories. It was actually pretty good. 

It has rained for the past 3 days straight. I love the rain but it makes contacting people hard. Nobody is outside and no one wants to answer their doors, so we got kinda bored this week but it has been pretty good. We sadly haven't found anyone solid yet to be baptized, but we are working on it. 

On Sunday they had us teach the Young Women and the Deacons about missionary work and the restoration. So we set up like a mini MTC and had them do a bunch of role plays and practice sharing the gospel with their friends. It was pretty fun, we got to play as investigators and they got to teach us.

Overall it has been a good week and being a missionary is the best you should all do it!
Thank you!
Elder Jensen
