7/2/2011 Elder Christensen

Elder Poulsen, Jorgensen, and I at the Bowling alley last week!
Hey there everybody! It´s been another superrr fast week. Not really sure how the time went by like that. Once again! It´s like Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Saturday again. The in betweens don+t really exist I don´t think.

I don´t really have a ton to say today actually. One really cool thing. We have our Baptism tomorrow! Carlos! We´re all so excited because as I have explained recently, he was definately prepared from before. It´s awesome how the Lord works and just has people ready to make covenants.

Elder Monsen and I sporting our sick ties mom! Nice work!
We´ve been working a lot on trying to get two less active ladies to bury their weapons of war already and turn their WHOLE soul over to the Lord. We went by last night and read Thomas S. Monson´s talk last conference about temples with them. It was JUST right for them. It talks all about how we must change our lives and stop ANYTHING that would keep us from being worthy to enter into the temple. It´s one of satans tricks to slither into our lives... Through music, movies, and other forms of entertainment. Once we think it´s okay to do certain things, we are already slowly being blinded by the adversary... Just like these two ladies though! They are such sweet people. We LOVE to go there honestly... We see them as having SUCH great potential... yet they hold themselves back because they dont WANT to lay down the habits of their fathers. Its SO sad. The prophet has said... As members, the GREATEST blessing that the church has to offer us come from temple worthiness and attendance. It should be our HIGHEST goal to not only go, but to maintain ourselves worthy to do so. It´s SO clear my goodness.

I honestly love what I am doing..... I have said a couple times that while helping others, I have been strengthened overall.. I know that to be true. I find that I can see the spiritual side of things and continue to do what the Lord wants me to do. I hope we can all maintain that vision.

Me in a sweet reflection pool outside of our apartment. Looks like Chile! haha!
I´m grateful for all of you and for all that you have done for me. I know that I have been SOOOOO blessed to have great friends, parents, and examples that I have... The mission makes us have the vision clear. There are a lot of great people out here, I´m just happy to be one of them. I only have a couple pictures this week. Once again, I hope you enjoy them! I´m praying for all of you! Hope you have another great week. Ciaoooo!
That´s all I left uncovered while sleeping. My eyes and nose! BRRRRRrrr!!

Have a great week!
