10/25/10 Elder Christensen

Hello to all the friends and family! Its been a great day today so far! We just got done with a zone activity at our stake center. Tons of fun games and food. We had a waterballoon fight and one kid thought it would be funny to add coca cola to the mix! So I´m walkin around with a "white" shirt in the middle of Maipu! Haha! But it was great. The work of the Lord is moving forward here! My sector El Conquistador is so hard though! Man! We work and pray so hard and we have little results. The important thing is that we know that through our trials the Lord will make us who we are meant to be and extend his hand in this work! I know we´re on the verge of finding a whole family who is prepared! Who knows it could be today! One thing that I love about being a missionary is the changes that you see in people. For example the inactive people who decide to come back to the iron rod! I love to see the changes that are made when someone implements the principles of the gospel in their family and really decides to live them. Then they seem to glow! We have a lady named Elizabeth Gomez who was way inactive with her daughter. But now they´re both active and loving it! They seem to radiate every time I see them both. I love it. I love to be the tool in the Saviors hands that helps someone really come unto him. I´m doing all I can here and know that I love and pray for all of you every single day. I hope all is well. No matter where you are in the world today, stop and count your blessings. Its amazing what we have and how we take it all for granted.. Do all you can in the gospel. Every activity. Every service. Every kind act. Remember when ye are in the service if your fellow beings you are only in the service of your god! I love you all! Talk to you next week. Gotta run! CIAOOOOOOOOOO! Elder Christensen
