Happy Father's Day

Hey family!!
This week has been a little hectic and a little rough to say the least. Just a lot to do and not enough time to do it, and in the middle of all that we had goodbyes to say for Elder Coleman, who has passed on to a better place (America). Life is still good though!
So the work this week moved very slowly. Elder Ulrich was down with another ingrown toenail and so we spent half of the week on half day splits with them so that their area didn't die completely. It kinda killed our program but hey, it had to be done. The second half of the week was spent saying goodbyes for Elder Coleman. He and Elder Koplin left for Tana on Saturday and will be on the way to America Wednesday morning. We had some very teary moments those last couple of days. Also we ate a ton of rice. I guess when you leave a country all of the sudden everybody wants to feed you. By far the best food was at Mahala and Elvines house. They fed us fresh lobster and it was way good. I don't think that I've ever had lobster before so it was way awesome. If there is one thing that I have learned here, you can literally eat anything with rice. I have had lobster and rice to dried fish head and rice to ground leaves and rice and it is all amazing because it comes with rice!!

So studies were a little weird this week. I didn't know what to study so I decided to do a study on the heart. You see the word heart a lot in the scriptures, and of course it doesn't mean a literal heart. It's a symbol. It stands for the character of a person. More than that it stands for every part of a person's soul. Our thoughts, our feelings, everything. There are a lot of scriptures that talk about turning your heart to Christ. That means to truly turn every part of yourself over to him. To make Christ the center of our thoughts, our desires, everything that we are. Only then can we truly understand all that he did for us.

So we got transfer news Saturday morning!! It's a good thing too because Elder Coleman left that afternoon. I actually still don't have a comp right now, but he flies in to Fort D at 4 from Tana. His name is Elder Deklerk. Hopefully I spelled that right. He is from South Africa. I've never actually met him but I will pick him up at the airport in a few hours.

Love you all so much,
Elder Jensen
Scripture of the Week: John 8:28

Happy Father’s Day, Love you Dad
