The last one!

Wow, this is the last email I am going to send from Honduras. I feel very strange, as if I were leaving home all over again.

2 years ago, I received my mission call to come to San Pedro Sula, Honduras. A city that I didn't know existed at that time. A place where I couldn't speak the language, where I would eat food that I had never tried before. A country where I knew absolutely no one, a city where people who google it, get scared of going there. Yet, I couldn't have chosen a more amazing place to have gone if I could have.

2 years later, I realize that I love this place. I have come to love these people as if they were my family. They have welcomed me here as if I were their family. I have been with them, teaching them about Christ, about the plan that God has for each one of us. I have talked with them about the Atonement, and that through it we can receive forgiveness, strength, and comfort, because the Lord loves us. He gave his life so that we could be happy. I have…

Good Week!

Heyooo!

This past week was a great week, we were busy in the office and in our area. We had a few airport runs, I could probably drive there with my eyes closed now. We are focusing on finding new people to teach and we have found a few that are excited to learn more about the gospel. We also continued to teach Ashley, and she is really progressing well.

We had Zone Conference this past week (sadly, it was my last one here in Honduras😢). President Bush taught us about the blessings of being humble, and about trusting in the Lord to help us spread the gospel, not ourselves. I really liked it, and I learned a lot from it. I was praying to learn a lot from this Zone conference, and the Lord blessed me with that. All of us that are leaving this change were also asked to give our last testimonies, so I did that. It was sad, I wish I still had more of those left.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great week!

Last week of the transfer

HEY GUYS!!

This week was awesome! We continued to prepare the Melendez kids to get baptized, and they are going to get baptized at 7 today! It's great!

This week we also were told that Elder Lozano is leaving this transfer, so Elder Hernandez got here on Tuesday. We've been working with him until Elder Lozano leaves next Tuesday. This next week is when the new missionaries get here, so that will be cool to see all the new guys come in. But, that also means that we have to take all of the departing missionaries home as well, which means lots of airport trips.

We are also still teaching Cristian, and he is doing well. I hope you all have a good week!!

Picking Up Speed

Hey!!

This week was really good. We continued to teach the Melendez family and they should be getting baptized this next week. It will be great, they are an awesome family. We started teaching the mom's sister, and that will be great as well.  This next week is the last week of the transfer, so we are going to be busy getting ready to welcome the new missionaries coming into the mission. 
Have a good week!

A Fast Week

HEY!

This past week went by super fast! I feel like it was just Pday. We continued to teach Cristian, and he is doing well. We also continued to teach the Melendez family, they are great. Their kids are super funny, and love learning more. We also found several new investigators to teach through this family.
We had Zone Conference this past week, and it is always great learning from President Bush. We talked a lot about how to minister in the way that Christ did. We need to take the time to see the people around us, and look at them the way our Heavenly Father sees them. When we do that, we will see someone who needs us, someone that we can help and be a friend to. I hope everyone has a good week!!! Elder Jensen

Finding

Hey!!

This week was a great week. We continued to teach Cristian, and he is doing well. We also continued to work with the family that we found last week, the Melendez family. They are great and came to church with us on Sunday. We are excited to continue working with them, they have 6 kids, and they are all great. They have helped us find a lot more people to be able to teach and it is going well.
Everything is good in the office. This past week, we were helping out with a few changes.
Last week I was reading in 3 Nephi and I saw a verse that I liked, "Therefore, whoso repenteth and cometh unto me as a little child, him will I receive, for of such is the kingdom of God. Behold, for such I have laid down my life, and have taken it up again; therefore repent, and come unto me ye ends of the earth, and be saved." The Lord invites us to come unto him as a little child, to be humble, and to make changes in our lives. We can make little changes in our daily lives that align our w…
