Thank goodness for P day! I'm officially loosing my mind!!! Earlier this week I woke up in the middle of the night to footsteps upstairs. (we live with members, but they are always out of town). So obviously I started to panic. I didn't want the intruder to know we were here, so I "yell whispered" at Sister Robinson. She didn't wake up, so I shook her and said "There is someone upstairs!!" Before she could answer I realized it was probably the members getting home late from vacation. I felt SO bad! My heart was still pounding when I layed back in bed and we listened to them walk around for another half hour. My poor companion! Seriously, for a good 3 minutes there was no other option in my mind...I was positive there was an intruder! I'm loosing it haha.

How was the classic Jensen Memorial Day? I'm sad I couldn't be there to help. I hope Wes had a fun day. Because our P day was a holiday this week, our P day got switched to today (Tuesday). Holidays are prime for tracting. So we went tracting in some apartments near our house in hopes of finding people home. Specifically YSA people. I'm really trying to develop a love for tracting. I just wish more people were interested our curious in hearing our message. We did have success though at a couple of apartments and we'll send those referrals to the family ward Elders.
I can't believe I'm on week 4 of this transfer! I have a feeling my visa is here, but I don't want to get my hopes up. The reason I think it's here is because my missionary online portal changed from Spokane WA Mission back to Manaus Brazil Mission. Fingers crossed! I'll find out in another week and a half. Also, Sister Prater and I get to be companions for 24 hours this week when we go on splits tomorrow!!! Ahhhhh! So excited! How often do ya get to go on splits with your best friend? That's missionary fun right there! Haha be sure to tell Jane for me :)
So this entire weekend Sister Robinson and I took on an extra Sister. This poor sister had such a bad time that she wanted to go home. In fact, there is nothing I could say to convince her to stay. So Sister Robinson and I decided we would make it the funnest weekend on her mission. She said President put her with us because we are the funnest sisters in the mission. What a compliment! I wouldn't say I'm that fun, but I try to find joy in the work.

Let us use this short time on Earth wisely. Like Moroni, I would "commend you to seek this Jesus" (Ether 12:41). Come to know your Savior Jesus Christ. He is real and present in our lives. I feel His love on a daily basis. It is His love that motivates me to do this work. I love you all. Thank you for your e-mails/letters and prayers.
