"As a man thinketh, so is he"

October 28, 2013

Hey everyone!!

First things first...I'm staying here in Lo Prado 2 with Elder Breed for 6 more weeks!! President wanted me to finish his training here in Lo Prado and I'm grateful for that.

We are blessed every week to have quite a few investigators attend church. That has been great for Elder Breed and I. 6 investigators came to church yesterday although our goal was 10-20. That's how many committed themselves. You know how we as humans are....flakes. Elder Breed and I have a goal to have 10 si o si in church this Sunday!! I think something that we have been able to develop here in Lo Prado 2 with the Lords help is always focussing on church and baptism with everything we teach. Those are the two main points that we focus on to help our investigators have that vision of coming to church and being baptized. It has helped us a lot so our investigators progress towards baptism and know that they have to do it by coming to church. We have to BELIEVE as missionaries that we can baptize and have progressing investigators cuz if we dont...No progressing investigators and no baptisms. "As a man thinketh, so is he." I love the talk "Only an Elder". Here are the parts that I love...

Only an Elder
By Bruce R. McConkie

Brethren, what think ye of the office of an elder? Someone asks: "What office do you hold in the Church? What is your priesthood position?" An answer comes: "Oh, I'm only an elder." Only an elder! Only the title by which a member of the Council of the Twelve is proud to be addressed; only the title which honors the President of the Church, who is designated by revelation as the first elder; only the office to which millions of persons are ordained in the vicarious ordinances of the holy temples. Only an elder! Only the office which enables a man to enter the new and everlasting covenant of marriage and to have his wife and children bound to him with an everlasting tie; only the office which prepares a man to be a natural patriarch to his posterity and to hold dominion in the house of Israel forever; only the office required for the receipt of the fullness of the blessings in the house of the Lord; only the office which opens the door to eternal exaltation in the highest heaven of the celestial world, where man becomes as God is. Only an elder! Only a person ordained to preach the gospel, build up the kingdom, and perfect the Saints; only a minister whose every word is scripture; only the holder of that office which carries the privlege of receiving the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, of having the heavens opened, and of communing with the general assembly and Church of the Firstborn, and of enjoying the communion and presence of God the Father and Jesus, the mediator of the new covenant. Only an elder! Every elder in the Church holds as much priesthood as the President of the Church. No apostle can or will rise higher in eternity than the faithful elder who lives the fullness of the gospel law. What is an elder? An elder is a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. He holds the holy Melchizedek Priesthood. He is commissioned to stand in the place and stead of his Master-who is the Chief Elder-in ministering to his fellowmen. He is the Lord's agent. His appointment is to preach the gospel and perfect the Saints. What is an elder? He is a shepherd, a shepherd serving in the sheepfold of the Good Shepherd. It is written: "And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord God." (Ezek 34:31) It is also written, and that by Peter, the first elder in his day: "The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder. "Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind. Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock." "And when the chief shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away." (1 Pet 5:1-4) Know this: elders, who are standing ministers in the Lord's kingdom are appointed to feed the flock of God, to take the oversight of the flock, to be examples to the flock. What is an elder? "And now come, saith the Lord, by the Spirit, unto the elders of his church, and let us reason together." "Wherefore, I the Lord ask you this question-unto what were ye ordained?" "To preach my gospel by the Spirit, even the Comforter which was sent forth to teach the truth." (D & C 50:10, 13-14) An elder is the Lord's representative sent forth to teach his gospel for the salvation of men. Who can measure the worth, the infinite worth, of a soul, a soul for whom Christ died? And yet, is not the soul of an elder worth even more, for an elder is his minister to bring many infinitely precious souls unto him in the kingdom of his Father. Do all elders feed the flock of God, take the oversight thereof, and stand as examples to the others in the sheepfold? Hear the prophet answer: "Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks?" "The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost." "Therefore, thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand." (Ezek. 34:2,4,10). The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the kingdom of God on earth. It is not a democracy, not a republic, not an oligarchy, not a dictatorship, not any form of government except a kingdom. it operates from the top down. The Lord speaks, and his servants obey. The elders go forth, and the people are taught. Our great need, the charge that is laid upon us, is to perfect the elders so they can feed the flock, lest the sheep perish for want of the word of God. The number one need within the Church today is to reclaim the elders so they, in turn, can "feed the flock of God." An elders quorum should be a school of prophets, a place where every elder and prospective elder learns what he and his family must do to gain peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come. But in all this, there is reward!  "Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest." "And he that reapeth receiveth wages." (John 4:35-36) "Behold, the field is white already to harvest; therefore, whoso desireth to reap, let him thrust in his sickle with his might, and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation in the kingdom of God." (D & C 6:3) "And now, behold, I say unto you, that the thing which will be of the most worth to you will be to declare repentance unto this people, that you may bring souls unto me, that you may rest with them in the kingdom of my Father." (D & C 15:6) Let us now, however, return to our theme, which is: "Brethren, what think ye of the office of an elder?" Only an elder! Only the office held by apostles and prophets in this life; only the office that they will have when they come forth in immortal glory and enter into their exaltation; only the open door to peace in this life and a crown of glory in the life to come. Only an elder! Only an elder in time and eternity! "What are we to understand by the four and twenty elders, spoken of by John?" The revealed answer: "We are to understand that these elders whom John saw, were elders who had been faithful in the work of the ministry and were dead." (D & C 77:5) Now, let us hear the words which John wrote relative to those who were faithful elders while in this life and who are exalted elders in the realms ahead: "Behold, a door was opened in heaven. And immediately I was in the spirit; and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne." "And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment, and they had on their heads crowns of gold." (Rev. 4:1-2, 4) Only an elder! "They had on their heads crowns of gold." Moses prayed, "Would God that all the Lord's people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!" (Num 11:29) Well might we pray: "Would God that all the elders among the Lord's people would be faithful, that they would feed the flock of God, that they would take the oversight of the flock, that they would be examples to the flock-all to the honor and glory of that God whose ministers they are." In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

This week I am going to share parts of this talk and help my District have the vision that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has for His children here on earth. It will be great for us to have a powerful and united District as we combat against Satan with much more power than he will ever be able to withstand with our diligence, obedience and effectiveness in His work.

Thoughts/Highlights of the week:

Hugo and Ana didn't get baptized this week. Ana needs just a little more time to be able to grasp this gospel and be able to make a covenant with her Heavenly Father to follow Him and His son forever. Hugo was right there, but in the end, he said that he felt like he wasn't ready to do it quite yet...He said that he knows he has to be baptized, but needs to have a stronger testimony. I think he's ready right now!!! Elder Breed and I have been encouraging, motivating and helping Hugo feel the Spirit so he can be baptized. Somtimes he still thinks that following the commandments are simply rules that the church has. His testimony will come from more prayer and fasting.

Our new investigators are doing well! Actually 3 of our investigators that went to church (Javier, Nico and Francisco) are some of our new investigators. A lot of our investigators have decided not to progress for different reasons but Elder Breed and I are still gonna keep searching and searching for His elite sons and daughters.

Got your Halloween package...thanks!

The members in Lo Prado 2 give us lunch (since that's the biggest meal here in Chile) from Tues thru Sunday at 2pm. We then have one hour to eat and then work from 3-10pm every day 10 we plan til around 1030-1040 and then eat dinner! at 1130 we're in bed beat tired!!

On Mondays (P-days) we don't ever go to restaurants. We usually eat in the house. Sometimes we eat completos or churrascos on the go. Sometimes when we go to malls we eat fast food...the best fast food restaurant here is BK for sure...the fast food here is definitely not the same.

Favorite meal here is asado (BBQ) or pure de papas con carne.

Good job Tarryn on NHS! I'm proud of you :)

What I miss from the states is GOLFING!!!!, mama's home cookin, sportscenter, golf channel and my family and friends!

All I want for Christmas is money so I can send my converts a little gift :)

I'm lovin my mission that's for sure. There's so much to do and so little time. I hope you all have a great week!! Thanks for your support. I'll be on the driving range in about an hour and that's gonna be SWEET!!!

Love you!!

Convert Yourself to the Lord

October 21, 2013

Hola!!!! How is everyone??

Elder Breed, Susana, Alejandra and Elder Jenson at the Santiago Chile Temple October 19, 2013

Ok, so basically SUSANA IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE CONVERT EVER!!!!! She has been progressing by leaps and bounds and literally has concerted herself to the Lord. Let me just tell you a little bit about what she did just this week!! Ok to start off, she works like a mother every day of the week except Sunday from 730am-6pm making candy in a candy shop. She comes home at 630pm just beat and never complains. From there, she has about four hours left in her day before she needs to go to bed to get some sleep for the next day and what does she spend it doing??

1. She reads the Book of Mormon every single day aloud so her family can hear it as well!
2. She had an interview with the Bishop on Friday so she could make a plan for her mission and how shes going to prepare, pay for it etc. (that interview went awesome by the way!!!). The Bishop gave Susana a Preach My Gospel and she reads it daily to prepare herself to go on a mission. Bishop said that in a yr she can get her calling and go on a mish!
3. Elder Breed and I pass by and teach Susana and her family almost every day of the week.
4. Susana was just called this Sunday to be a ward missionary!
5. Elder Breed and I went to the temple on Saturday with Susana and Alejandra and it was soooo awesome!!! We showed them the grounds (couldn't go inside) of the temple and they said that they loved it and want to come back and do baptisms next time!
6. Susana attended the Mission Prep class that is held Sunday mornings at 830am in the church, a class taught by Jace, a returned missionary. Susana arrived at 820am before us!!!!

Isn't that just a sweet week!!! Alejandra is also doing well. She is striving to keep up with her younger sister.

We had a sweet week in church bringing 7 investigators to church!!! It was so awesome just sitting in sacrament and having them all come in and enjoy the spirit!! Elder Breed and I were also able to teach 26 lessons this week! 13 with a member and 13 other lessons. 12 new investigators (34 investigators these last 3 weeks!!).

Highlights/Thoughts of the week:

Putting Tay's SUU team picture up on my wall in my room. Sweet!

Girls are lookin great with the Denver temple in the background. Love the temple!

Happy you felt like it was "Christmas in October" when you all received your handwritten letters from me in the mail this week! I was hopin you'd like em. Love you!!!

Transfers are Wednesday of this week. We don't know the changes yet....hope I stay!

Going to the Santiago temple on Saturday with Alejandra and Susana. I called and asked President Essig if Elder Breed and I could go and show Alejandra and Susana the temple so that they can prepare themselves to attend. President gave us permission! :)

Susana, Elder Jenson and Alejandra at the Santiago Chile Temple October 19, 2013

Pretty sweet symbol of all the work on my mission!!! Keepin these forever!


I don't have any more time left since I was sending a bunch of photos and trying to figure out a few more things on and such. Just know that I'm doing so well and that Hugo and Ana should be baptized this Sunday!!! Rafaela has now pushed her baptismal date back to the 23rd of November because of her mom that is now going to be traveling the country and won't be back for a long time....kinda sad since Rafaela is ready to do it!! Patience...

Thanks for your love and support. Have a great week all of you!!!

"The Priesthood is real!!!"

October 14, 2013

Hello!!!(what the flaites always yell to us in the street!)


Elder Jenson and Elder Breed at the Santiago International Zoo October 7, 2013
"We're lovin the mish!!"

So this week was pretty sweet! Susana and Alejandra were confirmed members of the church and received the gift of the Holy Ghost! That was a really cool moment just having them sit up on the stage while the Bishop and one of his counselors confirmed them members of the church. I loved it! Susana and Alejandra both had incredible blessings given to them so that they can be a light to this world and to their family to bring more souls unto Christ. After the confirmation, Susana came down and sat with me and was just beaming! She's like, "Elder Jenson, when they put their hands on my head, I could feel like a warmth, but not like I was hot physically, but inside me! That was so cool!" I was like, "Welcome to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!!! The Priesthood is real!!!" She smiled...

Something incredible with Susana this week is that she said that she wants to go on a mission!!!! She's like, "I want to do what you guys do so that I can help others find the gospel." That almost brought me to tears listening to that. I'm excited to hear what the Lord calls her to do!! We actually had a special family night on Saturday night with the Fuentes family to talk a little bit about the mission as well as watch a few videos on the Mormon channel about it. Susana got even more excited! She's always asking Elder Breed and I what she has to do to be able to serve a mission. We're going to coordinate a Bishop's interview with her this week so she and the Bishop can make a plan for her to go on her mission in 1 yr! How sweet will that be!

Elder Breed and I were able to find even more investigators this week. We found 12 new investigators!! That's so awesome for us. Since we began focusing on a ton of contacts, we are finding a lot more people to teach. Elder Breed and I were able to teach 23 lessons this week which I think is the most lessons taught since I've been in this sector, or close. We changed our focus area where we're doing all of our work in a part where not a lot of missionaries have worked for a long time. We're excited to be finding more chosen ones. We did struggle with investigators in church this week with only two (Joan and Hugo). Everyone else flaked on us. Just means that we have to work extra hard this coming week! Eduardo, Anllelina and Samantha went (like always) and Susana and Alejandra got confirmed, so that was good.

I want to close with some thoughts for Taylor...

Happy Birthday bud!! I hope you are having a great time up at SUU and are shreddin the nets showin who the Jensons are. I know you're makin a name for yourself up there and I'm really proud of you. I just want you to know that the time in your mission will be 100 times better than how much fun you're having at school right now!! It's important that you prepare yourself NOW for that experience instead of waiting til last minute. That should be the #1 thing on your list right now since the day is becoming closer and closer. I love you tons man and wish you the best in these crutial months in your life. Be a champion. Here's a quote I read here on my mission...
"A mans ambition is measured by whether his alarm clock is his best friend or his worst enemy."
Make your alarm clock your best friend!


Highlights/Thoughts of the week:

So sweet that USU golf is killin it lately...Higham winning last week and Seokwon this week!! Coach J's gotta be lovin it. I sure am!

Elder Breed and I set a baptismal goal for 3 in the District for October!

Rafaela had the flu this week so she wasn't able to get baptized.....we're hoping she gets better so that she can get baptized this Saturday!!!

Great job to Tarryn on Student of the Quarter!

Looks like your having fun over Fall Break!

Going to the Santiago International Zoo last week for the 2nd time!

Elder Jenson and a white tiger at the Santiago International Zoo October 7, 2013 "Pretty crazy!"

Elder Cambroni sent me pictures of Sergio and Susana's baptism. Sergio is such a stud!

This week I studied a lot about the attributes of Christ and I liked a quote in PMG about virtue. It says something like this..."Your virtue can be measured by what you do or think about while you're alone."

Tranfers are next week!! The change day got moved to Wednesday the 23rd though for some reason. The Area Presidency wanted it that way I guess. I think Elder Breed and I will stay here in Lo Prado though!

Elder Breed and I are doing good here in Lo Prado. It's cool to see Elder Breed's growth as a missionary each week. We're loving the mish!!

Hope you all have a great week!! Thanks for your prayers and support. Love ya lots!

"Now is the time!!"

October 8, 2013

Hey everyone!!!

Elder Jenson's Lo Prado 2 Ward having lunch in between Sunday Conference sessions October 6, 2013. "It was soooo good! It was like a little picnic on ping pong tables haha :)"

Hope you all had a great General Conference!! I know I sure did! It was another awesome weekend listening to the Prophet and Apostles in our day instruct us about what we need to do in this wicked world to be able to overcome the obstacles, jump the hurdles, avoid the potholes and come out victorious in the end. I love listening to them. They have such keen minds and are so in tune with the Spirit. I agree with Thomas Monson when he said, "Now is the time!!" It's time to kick it in gear and talk to EVERYONE we can come in contact with about this incredible gospel that's the only thing that brings us true happiness. He was talking even more to the members than to us as missionaries!! It's time to hasten the work of our Almighty God and prepare the way for our Savior Jesus Christ's Second Coming. It is near and we need to give everyone one last chance to soften their hearts and change their ways to follow Jesus Christ in all they do. I love what Christ said to His disciples right before he carried out the most important sacrifice in all of eternity, the atonement..."be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)" I also want to add to that..."Let no man be afraid! (D&C 103:27)" We cannot be afraid to share this gospel. I have developed that attribute on my mission being able to speak with anyone we come in contact with...I didn't know how to do it before my mission. I wish I would've developed that before, but I can't live in the past, just make up for it now. Invite your neighbors. Invite your friends. Invite your teachers. Invite your relatives. Invite the old lady crossing the street. It doesn't matter! Just do it. Open your mouth No excuses.

There are 7 times in the D &C that says we should OPEN OUR MOUTHS:

Doctrine and Covenants 33:9-Yea, open your mouths and spare not, and you shall be laden with sheaves upon your backs, for lo, I am with you.

Doctrine and Covenants 33:8-Open your mouths and they shall be filled, and you shall become even as Nephi of old, who journeyed from Jerusalem in the wilderness.

Doctrine and Covenants 30:11- And your whole labor shall be in Zion, with all your soul, from henceforth; yea, you shall ever open your mouth in my cause, not fearing what man can do, for I am with you. Amen

Doctrine and Covenants 33:10- Yea, open your mouths and they shall be filled, saying: Repent, repent, and prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths straight; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand

Doctrine and Covenants 30:5- Behold, I say unto you,(your name here)...for the time has come that it is expedient in me that you shall open your mouth to declare my gospel; therefore, fear not...

Doctrine and Covenants 71:1- Behold, thus saith the Lord unto you my servant (your name here), that the time has verily come that it is necessary and expedient in me that you should open your mouths in proclaiming my gospel, the things of the kingdom, expounding the mysteries thereof out of the scriptures, according to that portion of Spirit and power which shall be given unto you, even as I will.

Doctrine and Covenants 24:12- And at all times, and in all places, he shall open his mouth and declare my gospel as with the voice of a trump, both day and night. And I will give unto him strength such as is not known among men.

**What incredible promises that have been given to us if we are valiant enough to listen to the Lord, prophets of old and prophets in our time and open our mouth!

Highlights/Thoughts for the week

Sorry no email yesterday...we had Zone Conference!

3 investigators went to one session (benjamin, joan and rafaela), alejandra and susana went to two sessions (still investigators since they haven't been confirmed yet) and anllelina and her family went to one session as well. It was so awesome!!!

CSN update- We are now focusing tons on contacts in our mission! President is asking us to have 140 contacts a week now...10 for every missionary every day. Yesterday we had 4 hours of proseliting time since we had our Zone Conference. I was still able to talk with 10 people! I'm focussing on helping Elder Breed meet his 10 per day this week.

Elder Breed and I were able to find 10 investigators this last week!!! That's huge for us since it was a short week because of Conference. Of those 10 new investigators, Benjamin went to Conference and has a baptismal date for the 10th of November. Benjamin is 10 yrs old and is so excited to be going to church every Sunday, reading and praying.

Uncle Stephen is such a goof....always with his red beard

Pretty cool you got some pictures of USU mom!!!

Tell Andrew I loved seeing him in Papa's "missionary suit". That was cool!! Tell em I love em!

We're going to the Zoo again as a District activity today!!! Should be fun.

Our investigators are doing so well!!!! Don't have time to write about them, but Rafaela should be baptized this Saturday! Pray for her!

Fav talk in General Conference was by Elder Ballard!!! Motivated me a lot!

I finally received letters and packages...Got family package with memory card and also the one that Michael Horsley family sent me. Thank you so much! Love you all!

Hope you all have a great week!!!! And don't forget....OPEN YOUR MOUTHS!!

Susana and Alejandra were BAPTIZED!

September 30, 2013

Hey All!!!

So I don't have much time since Elder Breed and I went to Plaza de Armas today for P-day. I showed Elder Breed downtown Santiago and he was pretty facinated with all the people and the "stuff" that's down there.

Elder Breed, Alejandra, Susana and Elder Jenson at baptism in Lo Prado 2 September 29, 2013 "I baptized Alejandra and Susana. It was a great experience."

Before I go any further...Susana and Alejandra were baptized this week!!! That was an incredible experience for Elder Breed and I here in Lo Prado 2 as the Lord is mindful of us and let us receive the huge blessing of baptizing these two children of our Maker. Susana and Alejandra asked me if I would baptize them and I said of course! Elder Breed was one of the testigos. I was pretty fired up as we were teaching them this week and just so happy for them and their decision to follow Christ. Nothing better than be there teaching now a FAMILY and two of them (Susana and Alejandra) setting the example and being baptized to show the rest of the family how it's done. Elder Breed and I are now teaching not only Alejandra and Susana but Ana (their mom), Hugo (Alejandra's son), Maxi (their nephew) and Karen (their sister). The others that aren't in the baptismal picture are from another suberb of Santiago about 20-30 min away and are open to the fact of the missionaries teaching them as well. All of them loved the baptismal service! Alejandra and Susana were crying before and after the ordinance just full of the Spirit. Those were some really powerful moments. Alejandra gave a powerful testimony after she was baptized (Susana was a little scared to) and was so overwhelmed it was hard for her to express herself. She just thanked everyone for the support and that she felt a huge peaceful feeling. What Alejandra wants right now, and she always asks for it in her prayers, is that her family can accompany her to church. They all did yesterday!!

Elder Breed, Ana (Susana and Alejandra's mom), Susana, Alejandra, Elder Jenson, Jorge (little boy-Veronica's son), Agustina (little girl-Veronica's daughter), Veronica (Susana and Alejandra's sister), Kimberly (Veronica's daughter) and Hugo at the baptism in Lo Prado 2 September 29, 2013

Hugo and Ana now have a baptismal date for the 27th of October. They are determined to find out for themselves if this gospel is true. They already know it to some point, but they need to ask our Heavenly Father so that he can make it known unto them. Hugo and Ana are in the process of reading and asking and will have their answer soon! Hugo is a stud and loves to be with Elder Breed and I in the lessons. He's a smart kid who loves to ask questions so he can understand what we teach which is a good quality...if you don't understand, you can't just sit there...ASK! Hugo puts this in to practice a lot.

Alejandra, Susana, Hugo, Ana and Joan all came to church yesterday and also Veronica, Kimberly, Jorge and Agustina came for the baptismal service right after church. That was cool! The only bummer is that Joan's mom didn't give him permission to be baptized this Sunday. We fasted with Joan on Wednesday so that he would be able to get permission, and he will get it, but it just wasn't the Lord's will for yesterday.

Elder Breed and I were one of two companionships that completed ALL of the excellence norms for the mission! This means...3 baptisms in the last 6 weeks and 3 more investigators progressing that Sunday. I don't say that to say "meeeee!!" but just to show you how much the Lord is blessing us here in Lo Prado 2. The Lord loves us so much and through diligence, obedience and gaining the Lord's trust, His blessings come. Always!!

Also one last thing that is realllllly cool!! Anllelina got confirmed yesterday!! Eduardo, Anllelina's dad, was able to participate in the confirmation as Jace confirmed her a member of the church. That was pretty cool for my companion and I to watch! Eduardo also said the opening prayer in Sacrament meeting too!!! It's cool to bring families into the church that's for sure!

Highlights and Thoughts

We achieved our District goal for baptisms this month!!! Our goal was 3 baptisms and we were able to achieve 4!!! That came in part because of our Zone fast the 22nd of September!!

We're going to watch Conference in the Stake Center! It's gonna be sweet!! Second to last conference on the mish :(  All of our Zone will be there.

Tell Aunt Cheri's family that I'm praying for them!

Tay's looking good and bigger! Keep liftin buddy!

Pretty sweet Tallyn went to the temple with the Beehives. Good for them!

Studly for being in Forbes Dad!

That's a great decision to get baptized Avery!! It's always important to follow Jesus Christ and you did! :)

Hope you all had fun celebrating Dad's b-day. BTW-nice picture of the flags in the background...16 months today!

Well, that's all I have time for!! Thanks for your prayers and support. Hope you all have a great week!! I'll be thinking of you!
