Week 87

So my week was good. We are having more success here and finding a lot of new people to teach. We have an investigator called Amanda who came to church and loved it. I also gave a talk in church about unity. I felt pretty good about it. I had a little hiccup this week which I will tell you about in another email. I am good just waiting to hear about the transfer that will happen tomorrow. My companion and I are good and we enjoyed this transfer even though the area is a bit difficult.

It is so good to hear that things are going well there with the pool house and Charlotte. I can't wait to see you guys on Mothers Day!!!!!!!

Well, that's all for now; not much. But I will have more to tell you next week, I promise.

Love you all soooooooo much and hope you all have a great week!!!!!!!

Sincerely,
Elder Jardine
Week 86

So my week was good. We are working hard and things are going well. Sergio was at church and our lesson with Amanda was great. She said that she would come to family night tonight with our ward mission leader so we are excited to see how that goes. Other than that, nothing super exciting is happening. 
We had the opportunity to teach a Native American which was cool, but it was also the most difficult thing I have tried to do. It was amazing to see her innocence and their (her 5 year old daughter's) sincerity; it was amazing.

It is cool to see how things are going there. Keep me up to date on things. When I receive my travel plans, I will let you know, but I think that it won't come until my final weeks here. We will just have to see.

I love you all sooooooooo much and hope you all have a great week!!!!!!!

Sincerely,
Elder Jardine

Week 85

So my week was good. We had zone conference which was cool and we were able to work hard for the rest of the week. 

I loved General Conference!!! I was able to watch all the sessions and enjoyed every minute. The solemn assembly was fantastic. I felt really good sustaining our new prophet and thoroughly enjoyed the talks and announcements he made!!! 

As for a favorite talk, I can't choose one yet so we will see. And everyone was suuuuuper happy about the new Brazilian apostle and if you noticed, one of the Seventies had the name of Martins; he is from my mission so that was also exciting.

The new temple announcements were also surprising, especially about the one in India (does India already have a temple or not?) and Russia. So that just goes to show that the Lord's work is progressing and now faster than ever.

I am good here. We are all getting along and doing all that we can so we hope to see the work progressing here.

I am glad to see that all is well there and keep me up-to-date on things.

Love you all soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much and hope you all have a great week!!!!

Sincerely,
Elder Jardine
Week 84

So, our week was good. We worked hard and did our best, but unfortunately, we didn't have much success. We weren't able to teach Amanda, but Sergio (her future husband-member -returned missionary-returning back to church) started the process, so fingers crossed that all goes well. 

We are trying to work with some other investigators, but things aren't going perfectly. But we will keep trying. We are also working with more less active members which is going well. We had one come to church for the first time in like 4 years, so that's fantastic.

We had divisions last week which was fun. I was with Elder Lopez from New Hampshire. It was great. We also have zone conference this week which is exciting; can't wait to see what happens there and at General Conference too. So I will tell you about that next week.

So that's all for now. Hope you guys had a great week and have a great week this week.

Love you guys soooooo much!!!!!

Sincerely,
Elder Jardine

Week 83

So, I was transferred to Jundiai Planalto and I am opening the area. My new companion is Elder Ribero from Fortalesa, Brazil. We are working hard. It is a great place and our area is huge. We are still getting to know the members and such, but things are progressing little by little. I am healthy, just a bit stressed (1-because of opening an area and 2-because the house was filthy when I got here. But with the help of the other two missionaries here-Elder Emeric and Elder J Silva-that was taken care of). 
I am starting to get excited to see what I can do in this area (it might be my last). So hopefully next week I will have a bunch of good news for you guys.

I am sssssuuuuper happy to see that things are progressing there and that Ashley said yes (send me a video por favor) and I can't wait to see Charlie at Mother's Day.

Keep having a great time there and keep me up to date on things. Love you all sooooooo much and have a fantastic week.

Sincerely,
Elder Jardine​

Week 82

This week was good. We worked hard and had a lot of success. Unfortunately, we weren't able to talk to Douglas, but we have him marked for tonight so that will be good. We had interviews with President which was good. He gave me sone advice that I am applying. But other than that, it was a pretty normal week. We were able to find 10 new people to teach and we already have a bunch of references to contact this week so that will be fun.

It is great to see how things are going there. Enjoy the snow and Charlie (who I am super excited to see on Mother's Day by the way) and keep me up-to-date on how the proposal goes if it still hasn't happened.

I love you all soooo much and hope you all have a great week!!!!!

Sincerely,
Elder Jardine

Week 81

So just to start off... I am being transferred tomorrow.
My week was good. We worked hard and things are going well. We had divisions with some other missionaries which was good. We had a Nerf war and were able to work hard.

I am good here. The sun is super strong, but we were able to work all the same.

It is good to see how things are going there. Keep sending me pictures of Charlie and Tucker. I will let you know about my new area and my new companion next week which is exciting because it will probably be my last area!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Underneath are some pictures of some members and investigators; the senior couple are the ones who have a daughter in Lehi and are planning on moving to Utah. They are awesome because every time we visit them, they always give us a lot of food!!!!! They are amazing.

Keep me up to date on how things are there and now you can start the count down of 16 weeks😂. I can't lie; I am a bit trunky.

Love you all and have a great week!!!!!

Sincerely,
Elder Jardine
