Week Two!

     Here is another letter from Elder Jensen! Also Elder Jensen wanted to let everyone that there is a website that allows you to send a letter to any missionary in the MTC. The day you write it is the day he gets it. The website is called Take advantage of this Elder Jensen will appreciate it! Here's another letter:

Another week has gone by. All of the days seem to blur together, it's because we are constantly doing something all day. And it's all Portuguese, studying, eating more Portuguese, and then more studying. It's all good though, it just makes the week go by fast. 

So I guess I'll explain who everyone is in my district. I'm going off of the last picture I sent to you mom, it's the e-mail that you replyed to and it's the one of everyone in front of the MTC map. I'll will also be going from left to right, back to front. First is Elder Carmon on the left. He's from San Fransisco and he's always has a joke or something funny to share. Then the nerdy looking one is obviously me, not much to say about him :) Elder Fernadez is literally one of the funniest people I've ever met. He's from Texas and he just does and says the most random things, it's sooo funny. He's the one who wore basketball shorts over his overalls. So funny. Next is Elder Junge, and he is my companion. He's from Wisconsin and he's a great companion to have. He's a hard worker and excited about the gospel. Then there is Elder Richards from Virginia. He's really similar to me by the fact that we like similar things. Elder Derby is from New York and he's pretty chill and super smart. Elder Foelle is from Sacramento Cali, and I think I get along with him the best out of the district. He's super nice and we're a lot alike. Elder Kraudy is from Nebraska, but he isn't with us anymore, because he already got his visa! so jealous, he's in São Paulo right now. now to the front, there is Elder Ditlevson who is from California and was hard to get to know at first. he's an older missionary. I think he's 22, anyway he is really obedient and a good example for us all. Now there are the Sisters. Sister Hansen is from Colorado and she is one of the better Portuguese speakers in the district. Sister Jones is from Oregon, actually from Eugene so she's a Ducks fan. Sister Phillips is from Tennessee and has a pretty cool southern accent. And then there is Sister Bledsoe; she's from California as well and she likes to laugh a lot. So ya our district is the best district in the MTC.

Not much else happened this week. Hannah Boyle supposedly came this week, but I haven't run into her yet. But Alec Coman from the Liberty Lake ward is a couple of rooms away from me know, so that's cool. O and Irmão Beck (that's our teacher's name) taught us the coolest phase ever! It's "vou acabar com tua raça!" literally it means "I will end your race!" you say it to someone to talk some trash. It was the best when he taught it to us. \

By the way thanks for sending a dear elder mom! I felt loved :) it was good to hear how everybody is doing. Congrats Spencer on the race! 16:06 is awesome! e muito Otimo! keep up the good workI brag about how fast you are to everyone. And by the way how did the team do? keep me updated on how you and the team do and also how school is. I showed a picture of you syblings and the sisters in my district all had a comment on how cute my sisters are! good job girls, making your brothers look better! ;) O and before I forget; Megan, there is a sister in my zone that lokks exactly like you will when your my age. It's actually really weird how much she looks like you. 

Mom, first off I miss you. second, I have been trying to think of things that I need, and i actually need a couple more work out shirts and socks. we have more gym time than I had anticipated. Also I need letters and addresses. please send those thanks. O my goodness I am running out of time. an hour isn't enough. love you all thank you for your prayers. i need them. I'll keep praying for you guys. Good Luck in school Hannah Megan and Spenc! The Gospel's true! 

Tchau Tchau!
