Kangaroos don't attack humans....

Hey everyone here is the weekly update from down under! 

Monday- we had a normal P day, emailed, shopped, and got some haircuts for my comps. Then we went to a member's home for dinner and service! After we did both of those we went on a little bush walk with them to a place called moon beach! It was so sick! There were some kangaroos hopping around when we were walking back down and I was so sketched out haha I was scared we were going to get kicked in the face, but apparently they don't really attack people and if they do then you just climb a tree :)

Tuesday- We drove to a part of our area called Eden. While we were there we also drove to the border of Victoria and New South Wales which is where our area ends haha. Then we tried to visit a less active family in the ward but they weren't home and after that we just did some tracting. After that we went to a members home to help them with service then we had dinner with them and shared a message!

Wednesday- We went to to family history center to visit some non members who come there to do their family history. Then we went and did some service for a less active family where we just mowed the lawn which was huge and then we vacuumed there walls which had spider webs all over them! Then we went to teach some kids from a member family and the oldest one who is 14 isn't baptized so we are trying to work with her to get baptized! So we taught them then we went to this fish n chips shop where two of our 4 investigators and a guy from our branch president go to for a game night every Wednesday! They play games with miniatures which is a way complicated game haha so we just interact with a lot of non members there and talk to them!

Thursday- We had some stuff dropped off to our flat by senior missionary couple and then they took us out to lunch which was sweet! Then we went back to the flat and packed all of our stuff for the weekend because we were traveling up to Canberra for the weekend for Stake Conference and Zone Conference. So basically this whole day was just driving to Canberra haha nothing too exciting.

Friday- We had an amazing zone conference with Pres and Sis Back! We had really good trainings and we learned a lot! I felt so edified and pumped up at the end of the whole thing! Then after Zone Conference I went on trade offs with my main man Elder Yardley in his area! We did some less active visits and we taught 2 lessons that night which was nice for a change since we don't get as many lessons in Merimbula! Then we went home and learned some cool card magic tricks haha.

Saturday- We did some more treade offs and I was with Elder Sirithananon who is from Thailand! He is a tailor back at home and he knows how to dry clean suits and change ties into skinny ties! He is literally the man! So we went and did some less active visits and we ended up teaching one lesson about the truthfulness of the Book Of Mormon to a less active! Then we went to the adult session of Stake conference. We had Elder Liota of the seventy there for it and man he gave a powerful talk! Between him and the testimonies given by recent converts, man the Spirit was so strong and everyone could feel it! Investigators there could feel the truthfulness of what was being spoke! We also got to hear from Pres and Sis Back again and it is always such a pleasure to hear from them! 

Sunday- We had Stake conference that morning and once again the Spirit was so strong in there! Elder Liota gave another POWERFUL talk! I loved it all, he really just draws you in when he gives a talk! Then after that we ate lunch with some members from our branch that traveled up for conference! Then we did trade offs with Elder Tuitubo and Elder Tafengatoto but sadly all the appointments we had fell through haha so nothing too much happened.

My Spiritual thought for the week is the Standard of Truth, 

“The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.”

― Joseph Smith Jr.

This work is moving on no matter what! Nothing can stop it! I know this is the Lord's work and I am so grateful to be apart of it! I know this church is true! I love you all have a good week!!!

Love, Elder Jenson
