Week #4

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. 

This past week hasn't been too eventful. everyday is pretty much the same here. the only thing that has really happened is that there is a virus going around, it was here the week before i got here and now its back. people call it fiahrea, you can probably guess why its called that. one day there were around 80 missionaries in the infirmary. we are not aloud to shake hands or anything. luckily i have not got the virus so far, you get put on bed rest if you get it. its super contagious. I'm getting ready to get out of this place haha the other elders and teachers drive me crazy sometimes. me and my companion have been doing
 alright this past week other than when i have to tell him to not sing so loud. during this next week i will hit the one month mark, its been a super long month and i hope the next months are faster and better. my spanish is probably about the same as it was last week. when i first opened my call i was hoping to go to some crazy country, now i am happy i am not. I'm so happy that i get to come back to the states and have normal food. some of the food here consists of... breakfast burritos with just mashed potatoes in them, some funky meat that i don't know what it is, and weird baked eggs with spinach in them. american food is way better. thats why tuesdays are the best because we get pizza from Costco. so a regular day here is waking up at 6:20 then we have to study in the class until 7:30. after that we get breakfast then study until 9. at 9 our first teacher comes and teaches us a lesson and we do progressing investigator in spanish. we teach until 12 at which point we go to lunch. after lunch we have gym time from 1.30 to 2;30. we then have class again with our second teacher from 3 to 6. we have dinner at 6. then after dinner we go do a language
program on the computer called TALL. after tall we have personal and language study from 8 to 9:30. we then go back to our rooms and get ready to do it all again the next day. its exhausting and boring... but I'm on the home stretch at the MTC. i hope you are all doing well and having a good end to the summer. I'm always thinking and praying about all of you guys back at home. ill talk to you next week. i love you all and I'll see you soon. 
Love, Elder Jensen
