Well Hello Elder Jensen,
Hope your week has been great. I tried the Dear Elder thing hope it worked and you got my letter. How has your week been? Did you get Kar a letter written? We attended Owens farewell today, he did a good job. Sounds like you guys will leave the MTC on the same day. Talked to BUHLER for a few, soccer is slowing down for him so he is really getting ready and getting mission stuff done. Talked to Heleman for a few mins sounds like he is ready and excited to get going.
Is there anything you need from us that you can think of or any request for anything that we can send you. Everyone loves ya and asks about ya. Glad you are jumping in and learning the language. We sure love ya and appreciate your service to do the lords work. I will write ya during the week and try to send ya some pictures of the kids and stuff. Proud of your hard work and sacrifice. You are a great man with great faith and character. Love you very much.

Hope you had a great week! It sure was great getting your letters and emails last Monday.. Tender little mercy for G-ma and G-pa to run into you at the temple.. They love you soooo much!
Interesting how transfers work, sounds like a lot of Chinese speaking missionaries... We heard there is another Caden Jensen in the MTC right now, has that caused any confusion?
We had a great Pioneer day, played Utah FC in the morning, got beat pretty bad, didn't have all our players there... That afternoon mom and I went out for dinner and a movie... good times dating your mother. :-).
Friday was a good day at work, things are coming along well, I feel like I'm learning the business well and quickly becoming a valuable resource..
We played Utah Surf FC Friday night.. Tuff game we won 1-0, then played Jeff Lewis team Saturday morning... Still short players but gave them a good run.. lost 2-1. I think we will have a great team this fall.. Once we get all our players to show up regularly...
We visited with Syd Sunday night, she is soooo cool, glad she still likes to visit with us. We hope to take her and maybe Dan boating/fishing with us soon :-)
Owen did a pretty good job at his farewell today, you will probably see him later this week :-)
My last thought for my letter this week is something we talked about in Sunday school with the 15-16 yr olds... Remember the saying that goes something like this.. "Give a man a fish.. Feed him for a day, Teach a man to fish... Feed him for a lifetime.." You are a great fisherman! And I'm glad you have chosen to teach others how to Fish!!
