Flower Mound Week 27 (I think) February 13, 2017 Week Eighty-four

Hey y'all!

I don't have a whole lot to report on this week. We went on exchange with our Zone Leaders, and I was the one that was sent over to their area. While we were on this exchange Elder Petrucka went with one of our Zone Leaders to go teach Ingrid and Ryan, and so my limited knowledge of what happened then came from the two of them. Ingrid had been reading in the Book of Mormon, but apparently it was all flying over her head because of the way it was written. They tried to help her understand the older English that was used, but then they realized that she had several basic misunderstandings when it came to the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They went over it again very simply, and apparently she understood it a lot better. She got really excited upon hearing certain parts of it, because she has a lot of apprehension and mistrust when it comes to many large churches because of the scandals and corruption that follow them; when she learned that they didn't have the fullness of Christ's Gospel, it all began to click together in her head. They left them with a pamphlet that goes over the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a simple way, and we're hoping that it will help them in their fledgling testimonies.

Other than that, there's not a whole lot to report. We had almost all of our appointments cancel on us, and so we spent a lot of time knocking on doors. On the bright side, most of the week the weather was fairly nice, but on Saturday it was almost 90 degrees with high humidity! Elder Petrucka with despair in his voice, said at one point, "At least now I have a taste of what summers are like here." I laughed so hard, because that is going to be NOTHING compared to what summers in Texas are like.

Hope y'all have a great week!

Love, Elder Jensen
