Wow that sounds like a sweet trip down to St. George. That place is always so fun! I’m glad that you enjoyed church there. That is too bad that the elder didn't know Andrew. Have you found his mission address yet?

So this week has been pretty good. It started off slow but in the end it ended up to be great! So Tuesday felt like Monday long and slow. Haha but after that we went on exchanges with the district leader and that totally changed the week around! I went to his area to be with his companion and the district leader came here to be with elder Gray. While I was there we went to the visitor’s center with an investigator and the spirit was so strong. We watched the testaments movie and I forgot how strong that story really is. It’s so different to read it in the scriptures and to see it acted out. I loved it. That was the first time that I have been up there with an investigator in my mission and now I want to take everyone up to the V.C. haha. So then we finished exchanges and that was good. And while I was gone elder Gray found 2 new investigators that are super ready for the gospel! They’re Frank and Marilynn Ormbsy they are around 65 and have a son, and he and his family are in the church. So we are super excited to teach them. Then we were also able to set a baptism date with Andy Tomatsu for the 6th of November. He is still trying to find an answer to know if this is the true church but I know that the Lord will bless him as he continues to make changes in his life. We also set a date with Lily she has been trying to find that Jesus is he Savior and this week she felt like he is and that she needs to be baptized. So she has a date for the 13 of November. So things are looking up here in Alameda :) Yesterday we had dinner with this couple in the ward and they had this butternut squash soup and it wasn't my favorite but I still ate it haha. Grandma Ami would love it. We got rain again for the first time in along time and it felt nice, at first I didn't like it, but that changed pretty quick and then every thing was good.

That’s crazy that you found the missionaries right by our house! I’m sure that they will love to eat with Lori it’s always nice to meet people that want to feed us. Haha :)

I’m glad that Paul is loving work. It is really great place. Is he a cashier or working in a department?

Well that was my week I hope you all have a wonderful week I love you all a ton!!

Love elder Christensen

I cannot believe that another week has gone by it went by so fast I can’t even remember what we did!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time in St. George, I love that place! I wish we still went there for family reunions it was good to have a change for a while but I think its time to go back ha-ha. That is way funny that you saw Leslie she is so awesome!
That is so great that BYU lost and the Utes are still winning haha I had a talk with some guys in elders quorum about that yesterday. Pretty sure every one in California who is a member likes BYU except me. Its ok I like to be different.
That is way cool that you met someone from Andrew's mission. To bad he didn’t know Andrew. It sounds like you had some great talks. This week was the primary program for both wards it was fun the Bear Valley ward was not quite prepared but it was still good and the Golden Hills one was really good. The theme was I know My Savior Lives and they both did a really good job expressing their testimonies.

Mom you are awesome that is so funny that you got out of the car to get the missionaries phone number for the Plumbers I bet they were like, “What the heck just happened!”.

In the package if it is the one I am thinking of I haven’t sent on in a while but if you open it their is a BOSTON record for the cabin. :)
I haven’t gotten a letter from grandma Ami in a while but no the articles are not distracting I really like them.

Thanks for all you do

Love elder Christensen

P.S. I'm glad Paul I liking his job! What department does he work in?
