This week was a lot of walking and talking with people. We honestly didn't see much success this week, but we went out and invited all we could to learn more. That's all we really can do.  

On Thursday we got to meet our new mission President. His name is President Love. He and his wife are really good people and are super funny.
 
Later that night we had a lesson set up with a former investigator. We called him and he invited us over. He sent us his address but it wasn't the one that we had on record. So we went anyway and we ended up in the same apartment complex that our Zone Leaders live in. So we had a good lesson and he had recently moved there so we transferred the records to them.

While we were walking one day we were standing on a street corner and a lady pulled up, totally blocking traffic, and said "Elders, you look like you could use some chicken nuggets" and she handed us a thing of chicken nuggets from Chick-Fil-a. Tender mercies of the Lord.

Another miracle we saw - we were walking down the street and we didn't have enough time to go see the people we were planning to go see but we both felt like we should keep going. As we walked, a lady who was holding a big business sign saying "liquidation sale" stopped us and said that she had been baptized into the church a few years ago but since then had fallen away. Her husband had been shot in a gang shooting just a few weeks before and she was left on her own. She said that she had prayed that day for the first time in a long time for simple peace of mind. We were able to talk with her for a while and she gave us water. It is amazing to be the answer to someone's prayers. I encourage you to look around and seek out the spiritual sensitivity to be the answer to someone's prayers. I promise that the Lord will use you to stand in His place and be His servant.

Thank you all for the love and support!

Elder Jensen
