Hi family.
For some reason it is a real struggle to email today. I keep getting distracted and laughing with my roommates. We are emailing at the family history center today because it's memorial day and all the libraries are closed. Sister Jensen doesn't have her Ipad yet and I just hate emailing on the Ipad anyway because it takes a million years.

This week was pretty great. Sister Jensen is still adjusting to missionary life, but heck, aren't we all still adjusting to missionary life? Except for me. I am still trying to accept the fact that my mission is ending. This week I got all the information for my departing stuff in the mail. (That's the only letter I have received in a while. Shows how long I have been a missionary...) I didn't realize what it was until I opened it; after which I immediately screamed "NO!", threw it on the floor, and then proceeded to run and hide in the outside closet. So that is my life right now. The elders decided it was a good idea to tell everyone in the ward that I only have one transfer left... I was doing such a good job at keeping it a secret! Curses!

I have discovered what makes Sister Jensen happy- Mountain Dew. Man she slurped the mountain dew slurpee right up and was so excited to go out and work! I am now making her drink one everyday. She really is doing well though. I am impressed that I can tell she misses home a lot, but she still gets up and works hard. She is probably the most helpful new missionary I have had. She just wants to get everything done which is really awesome.

We have had to find a lot. We have been getting referrals which is really good. Our roommates investigator moved into our ward boundaries. Don't worry because I had no idea, but I felt prompted to go to this former investigator's house at 8:30 and she was there! She was telling us how much she loved Sister Fife and I said,"NO way! We totally live with her!!!!" So that was pretty cool.

Crystal is doing so so awesome! We have almost finished teaching her all of the lessons and she is definitely getting baptized on Saturday!!!!!!!! Our mission president interviewed her for baptism yesterday. Her husband, brother, and son have all been coming to church. I am pretty sure we are going to have about 50 baptisms this summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE MISSIONARY WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY! Also I don't really even remember most of the week at this moment because this week just flew by so fast. Okay I love you family! Have a great week!

OH wait! I wanted to write about the Hallens this week! That's the Ute family that I just love so much. We have been doing member missionary work with them and they have a family for us to teach about the gospel! I flipping love teaching people about the gospel! Holy cow I am such a weirdo. Sister Jensen actually did a dating role play with me because I am so awkward and need some serious help. Let's just say it didn't go so well....

Alright I am going to send y'all some pictures now! Love yoU!

With love from your missionary, 

Sister Olsen

Everything in Redlands is fancy. Even the Circle K. Check out that water fall! All the customers are waiting under their tent for their cars to be done at the fancy car wash in the back.
