Springfield Episode 15: Icy White BS

Hey team! Elder Jensen here reporting live from Springfield Oregon.

Things are nice and cold and wet up here lately, but that doesn't mean that were slowing down for anything. This last week has honestly been one of, if not the best week of my entire mission. Holy cow, we found and taught SO many people this week! It was really a great blessing to see our hard work pay off, but also very humbling to see the Lord work through us. I know that we couldn't do anything out here without Him.

So for starters, this week was swamped with stuff to do. On Tuesday we had our MLC in Eugene which the district leaders were invited to. It was a great meeting, plus we saw president Russell rip his shirt off, so that was something else. (He had another one on under so it wasn't as weird as I made it sound.)

Thursday we had interviews which is always a great experience. I love to see just how much our Mission President loves all of us. He was able to really help me with some of the questions I had.

Rounding the week out was ZTM on Friday. We taught all about the Book of Mormon and how we can better use it our teaching efforts. It was great to be able to be back to teaching. I was very grateful for the opportunity.

When we didn't have meetings, we were out slipping and sliding around Springfield. The weather out here has just been the pits. The atmosphere can't decide if it wants to be in perpetual blizzard or rainstorm, so it went with both. But that didn't stop us from getting after it.

All of those lessons we scheduled last week? We ended up teaching nineteen and finding ten new people to teach. That's ridiculous considering that we usually find maybe two to three a week. Some of the most promising people are the Silence family, a man named Keith, and this lady named Delaina. We're super excited to see where they go!

We also had some great lesson with our usual peeps. We had an incredible lesson with Ken Moxley and actually invited him to be baptized on February 4th and he said YES! HE'S MAKIN STRIDES WATCH OUT WORLD! We're hopefully going to get Xavier on date here pretty soon too, so Second Ward is just going to be flooding in with the success. It's been Wonderful!

Crazy Oregonian Spotlight of the week goes to the guy that answered the door in a Teletubby costume 😂 What a man.

That's it for me this week. Stay tuned for a follow up.

Thank you for all the love and support! Have a great Week!

Eat your greens,

Elder Jensen

Look at these missionaries. Good stuff!

This poor man froze himself to death. :(  RIP
