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.

Man this last week was one of the hardest weeks that I have ever had on my whole mission. Everything went wrong. My companion and I got sick, we had like no time to work, the bishop in our ward decided to work against us for a little bit, etc. But the cool thing is, is that I am really happy. I have just been pulling more energy from the fact that I can see the end instead of letting that kill me. We'll see if I can make that happen until the end, but for now I amped and happy about having a few more weeks to be a missionary.

Some dude in our ward challenged everyone to think of a few deep personal life questions that they would like answered so that they can take good advantage of general conference and pull what they need to learn out of the talks. I can say that right now there are a couple of questions in my heart (example: what the heck am I going to do in 4 weeks?!) so we'll see if any answers come that I am able to understand. But I just feel way calm about everything so I don't think it is a big deal.

I got a cool leather cover with my name on it and whatnot for my portuguese bible. I'll show you guys later.


so yeah. Not much else to talk about. Just working hard and trying to teach the other missionaries that under my control how to be a bit more successful. No one really listens to me. Haha. They act like they are listening, but little progress is made. I'm sure Heavenly Father can relate with that.

So I don't know when you'll make the work schedule for the end of april, but feel free to throw me in at the front desk or whatever starting that thursday that I get home. I am afraid of going crazy from having nothing to do. Just remember about the trip at the beginning of may.

I love you all and I am excited to finish the right way and reap the benefits of the service that I have been a part of. I am sure it will be a way good feeling to know that I gave everything that I had all the way to the end. I just need to do that now so that I can be sure that I'll feel that feeling later.
