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.

So over the weeks and months (and years...?) I have been realizing that if I go crazy in the work and do everything I can, but with the sad but true knowledge that my work alone won't amount to much, and then get on my knees at night and plead with the lord to just make what we both want to happen happen, everything works out incredibly well.

And on the other hand, I can work equally hard, but if I don't ask him for help, even the most basic of things go horribly wrong. This happens to the extent that it is almost funny, if it weren't so frustrating.
So today I found the word to put on that. It is called grace. I knew there had to be a word for that. It is by grace that everything happens after all we can do. I have success only because I let Christ do his thing. If I didn't nothing would happen. Cool.
I have to pee, so this will be short.
I love you all and can't wait to see you
Love elder christensen
