Elder Caden Jensen,
How was your week? I hope it was wonderful and you had some great connections with people. How was the birthday? Amazing I hope. We sure missed you but a birthday in Taiwan is pretty cool, not everyone can say they celebrated a birthday there. Question on the weather, do you want some vitamin d cause you don't see the sun that often. It helps. Do you have enough money for everything, and is food expensive there. Are you eating good and healthy and enough? Of courses we love you, more than you can imagine. We love all of you very much. We can definitely feel your prayers and love for us, hope you can feel ours for you. Glad to hear you found an effective way to talk to people by pulling over and that it is working. Glad to hear things are coming together for your investigators, and that you make good use of your study time. Good to hear you enjoyed stake conference, do you have a new bishop yet? You are right, good habits are an important thing to have all through life, it makes life better. Awesome you got to get on Mormon. Org. And to hear your testimony is growing, mine is to everyday. The Lord works in wonderful ways. Pretty cool about the Book of Mormon staying dry. We are just driving home from Disneyland, we missed ya but took a blown up pic of you. You will see you are in the pic we took. Glad you are doing what you are doing, that's the important stuff. I agree, without the gospel and atonement none of this is possible. Love you, thank you for your willingness to serve. Take care of yourself and that handsome face please. Let us know how we can help and if you need anything, really. Love you much, take care and talk( yes I mean talk soon) can't wait. Quick quote "to your enemies forgiveness, to an opponent tolerance, to a friend your heart, to a customer service, to all charity, to a child a good example, to your self respect." Love you son - mom️
What up bro
Lots of letters from us this week because we wrote you on your birthday... Hope it was great! We drove to California that Wednesday night, dead headed it, we're doing great till we hit traffic outside Anaheim, the last 50 miles took us over 3 hours, we got in a little after 2:00 AM...
yeah the YSA ward does keep us busy we had a game/sub for Santa night Monday for FHE, we missed the temple trip to SLC because of Disney this weekend, but this upcoming week we have lots of YSA stuff going on... FHE Monday, YSA dinner at our house Tuesday, dinner with bishopric at Tuchanos Thursday, and ward Party Saturday.. Well let you know how all that goes...
Hopefully the snow will fly soon, grandpa j picked up another 900 this week, green with electric start.. Seems like a great ride... Makes 6 900's for us right now.. The snow was OK the day after thanksgiving but we really didn't ride much.. Hopefully in the next couple weeks.. Of course we took the amps and subs out of your bronco, they were probably worth more than the vehicle itself... We didn't sell the bike yet.. Probably wait till spring.. Good idea you had, let's look into dirt bikes when you get back..
Disney was good times this week hopefully you'll get the pics we took.. I'll send them in a separate email.. The grandkids did awesome, having Pat, Dave and Michael along was cool too. They helped with the grandkids quite a bit.. Weather was awesome.. Mom even rode splash!!! We saw lots of people who probably speak Chinese, hopefully when you get back you can go to Disney and talk with some of them with us..
The gospel is pretty cool right? We sure love the influence it is in our family's lives.. Thanks for serving, and thanks for having such an awesome personality and testimony!!
Let us know how we should prepare for the call this Christmas time, software we need on iPad or whatever...
Love ya tons!
