It is interesting to see what people will say just to get away from you...

So my zone is good. All of the guys in it are great guys/girls they have mainly been out here for a while so they know what they are doing. It is good to learn from their mistakes so I can do good faster :-) haha. This week has been sweet. It has been a mission week you know? Like it is seriously just a regular week you would expect in a mission. Except we don't have anyone to teach, so we are just going out and talking to everyone we can. It is crazy, literally everyone, it makes things cool and interesting to see what people will say just to get away from you haha. We saw this guy walk down this street and he saw us so he turned around and started running the other way. But I wanted to talk to him, so naturally I started to run after him, we had a nice little jog together haha.

A deer jumped over our car this week. That was a trip haha.

So while we were out finding people this week we started talking to this Baptist preacher. And I started with, like getting to know him, and then I was like can we share a brief message about Jesus Christ. Then we proceeded on. And we started talking about prophets and Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. After a while he was like. Wait a second, I thought you were sharing a message about Jesus Christ...........and that took me back a second...

Too often we get focused on everything else except what is literally on our name tags. Christ is the whole part of what we are. Through Him is the only way we can make it to heaven. Because of what he did, we are able to be clean.

So when you look back on what we have, all of our teachings, all of the way our church is set up. Look at how Christ is in it first. Always remember him.

I felt like an idiot.

I learned a lot this week about who we really are as latter-day-saints. He also brought up the point. Why are we called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints? Why not just the Church of Jesus Christ? And we had to think and really we are in the last days. This is the end of times. It could end in like a 1000 years or in like ten, but it is still close, so we have to be the best we can, but evil is doing the best it can too.

Stay strong, sorry this week kinda nothing happened, Elder Christensen
(I got a call this week from a CJ who is a ward missionary in the ward Keegan is serving in. He told me some nice things about Elder Christensen and they said they got a car due to his companion’s hurt hip or knee)
