No matter who you are don’t judge a book by its cover...

Hahaha Amarillo is the place to be for missionary work it is beautiful but for visiting I don’t want anyone to walk through my area I would be afraid for you haha.

It is a sweet city and this is exactly how I pictured a mission should be it is cool going out and talking to all the people it is cool. So I live five miles out of my area though and we are on bikes so it is kinda hard to get to and fro so I eat a big breakfast we leave at ten go and work and get home at nine and I eat din din. That means dinner. haha ya it is madness my new companion is Elder Chuck he is 27 he is a nice guy he has been out on his mission 21 months and we go to work...

So Amarillo is a lot different than San Angelo holy crap everyone its like being in a whole new world I love it. My first day in my area 15 people yelled at us from their cars and 13 of those yells were positive so life is looking up. haha the work is really good here too. Like really good we are teaching a ton of people right now. Sure a couple of them are homeless and sure a couple are drug dealers but hey that’s why we are here. We are all our brothers and sisters. We have been teaching a lot of Spanish people which makes me livid that I don’t know Spanish but there is a cool story a few lines down so keep reading. Well I’m getting pretty ripped from riding my bike even more then I did in San Angelo so for all of you who were curious ;) haha jk so this week we were walking down this street and these two Spanish guys walk up to us and are like come come come so we followed them into their house and no one spoke English there but this guy hurt his leg so he needed a blessing and so I said a prayer that I would be able to understand what they were saying. Then out of nowhere I started being able to understand, things were coming back to me from Ms Harts Spanish class in the 7th grade and we were able to communicate and we blessed him and their home so that was a pretty cool moment when the lord used my knowledge man I love the lord haha.

We also are teaching a humble man named Thomas who has spina bifida and has been in wheel chair his entire life , he is being baptized on Sunday and he is the most awesome humble sweet man in the entire world I wish y'all could meet him.

Sorry this letter is short but I wanted to say. No matter who you are don’t judge a book by its cover. We were teaching this homeless man who I don’t know his name but I call him red hooded sweatshirt and he has no one in the entire world and we were afraid when he came up to us... and idk why I was afraid… I was judging him and that was wrong he is now my best friend in all of Amarillo hands down and we see him everywhere and now since we’ve been meeting with him miracles have been happening I will tell you next week.

I have to go I love you all be safe,
Elder Keegan Christensen
