Hola familia & amigos! Honestly like always, I can't remember much of what happened this week. We had zone conference which is ALWAYS a good uplifting time.
The other day I told Sister Calvert that I felt like I was 90 years old & she said, "Well in mission age you are like 75!" Haha great thanks for the youth love 💗
So this year as a mission we are focusing on becoming a 2.0 mission. Meaning that every missionary has 2 baptisms this year. At the end of last year we were at 1.0 & guess where we are now?! 1.8!!! Heck yes! It just proves to me that hard work, faith, & a lot of obedience pays off. We are so close. (: Out of the 34 missions in our regional area we are #3 for the most baptizing mission. What an accomplishment in Northern Virginia. Seriously love this mission! I know this is where God needs me to be.
So in my scripture reading I am at 3 Nephi 11!! So this is where Jesus Christ appears to a group of people called the Nephites in the ancient Americas! The part that stuck out to me today was 11:15 where it says, "And it came to pass that the multitude went forth, and thrust their hands into his side, and did feel the prints of the nails in his hands and in his feet; and this they did do, going forth ONE BY ONE until they had all gone forth, and did see with their eyes and did feel with their hands,"
Christ let EVERYONE feel his hands ONE BY ONE, which to me symbolizes him suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane for us ONE BY ONE. & that's how he truly knows exactly what we are going through! I could rant about this whole chapter for an hour, but too bad for you I'm running out of time (; I KNOW Jesus Christ lives more than ever. I know he feels in the little aches of our hearts. He is my everything & I am so grateful that he has called me to do HIS work among HIS children.
xoxo, sister Jensen
