Elder Christensen: Letter 1/27/14 "Stay'n Pray'n"

Well family, I'm staying one more transfer here in Crystal City. Maybe we will break my record of 2 transfers ha ha!! This week we had Kathy Cooper's Baptismal Interview. She passed:) We also contacted the Less Active and his son and taught the Restoration. We also extended a Baptismal invitation and he said yes so thats good news. Maybe we will have 2 baptisms in February and 1 in March. Not too bad for a dead area 6 weeks ago! We also had 3 Less actives come to church this week so that was a cool way to end this transfer. The sisters in our ward had 2 other investigators there as well so that was a very full Sunday! Then we had a priesthood meeting after all that and the focus was on Senior Couples serving missions. So that was cool to hear their testimonies and feel how much they really want to serve the Lord! It would be hard to leave your house and your grandkids. I give them tons of props! They also don't have to follow the white handbook so I think I'd enjoy their mission a lot!!!! You just get to be yourself and share the gospel. What more could you want?
Anywho after that meeting we gave a blessing to Sherry Daniel. She is a less active who just found she has cancer. So that's not good, but we had brother Homan come and give her that blessing and he was definitely the man for the job. I felt like he and her have been best friends for 20- 30 years and it was a really good blessing. You could just see her worries go away. :) She will be in my prayers along with our investigators and those who are having trials back home. Love you all!

Love Elder Christensen
