Ben 1-24-11

Thanks for the birthday packages they were great! I got them on Saturday and totally opened them immediately, haha sometimes I have no self control. I'm glad to hear that Paul is finally getting his eagle that is so awesome!

Man that is freaking awesome that Danny is having interviews in CA. It would be awesome if he gets a job here then he could come take me to lunch... ya right but maybe Matt...
I’m glad to hear that Sam and Mitch are doing well at swimming that is so awesome that SAM made it to state in the 100 you will have to let me know what his time is cuz I love the 100! How about Mitch? what event is he swimming? As for the super bowl I don’t want either one of those teams to win so I hope they both loose! haha guess that’s how the Lord works now I’m not even tempted to watch the game not that I would anyway but now the temptation is definitely gone!

This week is transfer week and we tore it up as usual on week six. It is funny how week six is always the best but it makes sense because the whole transfer we are trying to build and build so it just makes sense that week six is the best week that we have. So it started off by having a lesson with the Farris’s and we took a lady in the ward sister Majors who is a missionary machine. In the lesson we read 2nd Nephi 31 which was really awesome as we were reading sister Fariss stopped us in like the middle of the chapter and told us that we didn’t need to go any farther because she was already baptized and we proceeded to tell them that they did need to be baptized again because of the apostasy and she said that they needed to pray and read the scriptures in order to get the answer so we had them kneel right there and pray about it the spirit was super strong so hopefully when we go over on Tuesday we will be able to set them with a baptismal date. Alright so I just barely got my transfer call and I am staying here in Solvang which I am excited for. My new companion is going to be elder Christiansen... so it will be Christiansen and Christensen... ya I laughed too.
We had a great lesson with our investigator Taylor as well. It was cool, he is a cool guy. He is about 25 and has a crazy past but has been turning his life around and looking for something better in his life so he is truly searching and keeping our commitments which is great.

Sorry it is really short this week I didn’t have much time, hopefully I will have more time next week.

love you all
elder Christensen
