This is probably the only post that will be from THE Elder Christensen.

If you are reading this you probably know me and are close to me so I won't really describe myself...

But today is Sunday May 02, 2010. I get set apart tomorrow as a MISSIONARY for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 8:30 P.M. These last couple days have been a whirl-wind but I still have yet to fully grasp the concept of flying to Brazil Tuesday morning so I'm betting the coming days will just OWN me from the inside out as far as craziness goes. I am so excited to head off into the unknown, and am ready to tackle any challenge that comes my way. My mom and dad taught me right, and I am so thankful to you all of you that prepared me for getting this far. You all know who you are

Anyways the blog that follows will pretty much just be a post of Emails that are from me to my family and friends, and it will be a good way to see me progress through my mission first hand. Even if my emails aren't necessarily to you don't feel weird about reading them. I want as many people to share this experience with me as I can.

God be with all of you until we meet again. You'll need it while you don't have me to bestow my presence upon you. haha. I'll see you all in a couple years.


Send Me A Letter, I Miss You.

06 Jul 2010

To the Family of Elder Michael Scott Christensen, Sister Jackson and I were delighted to welcome Elder Christensen to the Brasil São Paulo Interlagos Mission this morning. Please be assured that he received an enthusiastic welcome from his leaders and fellow missionaries. Details of his first day in the field with a few pictures should arrive shortly by conventional mail but we wanted you to know that he arrived safely and was warmly greeted. Elder Christensen has been assigned to labor with Elder Collin Daron Bush in the Vista Alegre Ward of the Embú das Artes Stake. As you can imagine, those who receive the assignment to train new missionaries are among the most faithful and dedicated missionaries in the mission. Elder Christensen has been asked to write you each week on Preparation Day (Monday). We would ask you to write him weekly as well. The importance of a letter each week from those he loves cannot be overstated. Please remember to share family news and personal experiences that will help him focus on the work of the Lord and increase his desire to serve with all of his heart, might, mind, and strength. Given the time difference with the United States, e-mail correspondence should probably be sent by Sunday evening. Packages and correspondence sent by conventional mail should be addressed to the Mission Office as follows:

Elder Michael Scott Christensen Missão Brasil São Paulo Interlagos Rua Euzébio de Souza, 121

We look forward to our association with Elder Christensen as we work together to build the Kingdom of God in Brazil. We are so impressed with his desire to serve and feel sure that he will be a blessing to his companion and to our entire mission. If you have any questions or concerns, please don´t hesitate to contact us. The mission e--mail address:
Love, President Christopher G. JacksonBrazil São Paulo Interlagos Mission
