Week #49

Well Brody has had a good week. He talked with us today about some great experiences this past week. He will be having another baptism this weekend. He told me that he is a little nervous. He was asked to do the confirmation. As you know, these take place in sacrament meeting. He will be doing it in spanish. I told him that is awesome. He let us know that it was ONLY 110 degrees today. He has yet to use sunscreen. As you can imagine, his mother is not very happy about that. He also sent some pictures that I will have posted on his blog. He is creeping upon that one year mark. Thanks for all of your support. 


Well hello everyone, How are you all doing? I hope you are all enjoying your summer! Things here are going pretty well. First off, how about them warriors!? NBA champions! Steph Curry is the man! Anyways, this past week was pretty busy! So last Tuesday we went up to Fresno with a member and an investigator to the farewell for the missionaries that were going home! While I was there I got to see a lot of people that I haven't seen for a while including members and other missionaries! Our investigator that we took was Chris, he is a 17 year old boy. After the farewell we went to IN N OUT for dinner. On the way back to Lindsay, Chris looked at us and said, "So when am I getting baptized?" It kind of took us by surprise but we set a date and he will be getting baptized this Saturday! We are really excited for him and he is super solid! On Friday this past week we were invited by one of our recent converts to a bible study that someone was doing. So we thought that we would go and check it out. So we get there and it turns out that the lady was from the 7th day Adventist church. She just started reading scriptures out of the Bible and telling us that we didn't follow the commandments as a church. So she just kept looking up scriptures and giving her memorized recitation, I was getting sick of it so I just said, "Let's talk about the Book of Mormon, do you have any questions?" Then she tried to prove the Book of Mormon wrong but she couldn't! Haha so we read some scriptures out of the Bible and stumped her, she didn't know what to do. So she started to get angry and just tell us that we were wrong so we got out of there before she got too contentious! The next day we showed Meet the Mormons at the church and invited everyone to come, we had a good turnout with about 7 investigators and some less active members. And then the 7th day adventist lady walked in... haha she sat down and she watched the movie and then got upset because it showed a lady kick boxing and she said how bad it was. After the movie she was talking with some of the members in the foyer. And trust me, our members know the scriptures and our super strong, especially the hispanics. So she tried to bash with them and it did not go well... hahah but it was pretty fun! That is about all that happened! I love and miss you all! have a good week! Elder Jensen
