This is the last email Brody will be sending while at the MTC. His 6 weeks are up. I am sure his companion is as happy as Brody. I was able to message back and forth today for about 2 hours. He was able to play basketball with Daniel and Brody Adams today. He said it was a pretty good day. He also mentioned that one of Daniels bags is lost somewhere at the MTC, and just our lack it had some of Brody's stuff in it. He was hoping to find it today before he left. He is looking forward to getting back to the united states and buying a real american burger. I asked him about his talk and they basically go to church with a talk prepared and they call a few elders out of the congregation to speak. I have some pictures I will forward in separate emails. Thanks for all of your support this past 6 weeks. It means a lot to Brody. His next email should probably be Monday from Fresno.

As you can see Brody is somewhat himself this week. He has gone from threatening to punch his companion to directly splitting their open their lip. I am glad that his companions in his district still love him enough to give him a nickname Hahaha. Brody told us that he received his flight information. He leaves Mexico next Wednesday at 7:00 am. He can hardly wait. Seth left Monday for the mission field. Brody told us that he and Seth were able to spend some time together on Sunday Night. He told us how that experience went down. I am so thankful they realize how important each one of them was to the other. Thanks for all of your letters to Brody and your prayers in his behalf this past week.

Brody seems to be settled in and going through the motions. He can't wait to get out of Mexico. He wants us to send some spray and wash as well as a sweater with Daniel. He was hoping that he would't have to get a haircut while at the MTC but they require one right before you leave. He sent some pictures that I will forward in a separate email. He says it continues to rain everyday. He is with his companion from minnesota as well as one from kansas, orem, bountiful, redding california, bingham, and oregon. He really likes the kids from bountiful and california. He is going to send a picture next week of all of them. Only two more weeks in the MTC. Thanks for all of your prayers this past week for Brody.

As you can see Brody has found someone to antagonize besides his siblings. He doesn’t even sound like the same kid that arrived in Mexico 3 short weeks ago. Brody told me that he gets to play basketball, volleyball, or kickball for an hour everyday after lunch. He was able to go to the temple and visit but not go in because it is still closed. I will send some pictures. He told us that he spends 7 hours a day in classes and then has to study fromevery night with the others in his dorm. He is looking forward to another payson boy arriving tomorrow. Brody Adams is headed to Mexico tomorrow.
Thanks for all of your prayers in Brody's behalf.
Love, Elder Jensen
