Hola a mi familia y todos! Well, this week has gone by pretty darn quick. It truly goes to say, the days go by like weeks, and the weeks go by like days. The work here in Puno is going well! We have hills in our area similar to those of San Francisco. Its crazy, walking up and down them all day to our next appointment! It can be kind of a bummer when every single appointment that we have cancels, or they aren't at home. It's quite difficult to find houses, er, apartments here in Puno. Well, I'm sure it's the same for all of Perù as well. They rarely have numbers, and when they do, its typically scribbled in chalk or something. But, we move onward. On, on to the victory! ( D&C 128:22) That scripture really pumps me up. Shall we NOT go on in so great a cause? I know that this work is truly the work of the Lord and I can feel His presence with us daily. ¡Estoy amando este obra de misional! I cant believe that its almost Thanksgiving, I totally forgot about that. Christmas is just around the corner, and today I sent the package! Now family, you must have patience. Do not open it until Christmas, ok? Anyway, we have had a TON of rain this week. Almost everyday. The lightning and the thunder is incredible! Shakes the earth, literally. Our investigators are progressing! Good news, yeah? We have been teaching Alex and Julisa still, and this week we are teaching them Obedience and hopefully they will agree to get married. I mean, they do have a kid on the way! Haha, but yeah they both are great people, and I hope they will continue to read the Book of Mormon, the keystone to our religion, and gain a testimony of its divinity. All of our investigators need to have a testimony of Joseph Smith, because without it, how can they believe a word that we are teaching? We are doing our best to resolve their doubts, and help them move closer to Christ. Mom, how nice are you to offer to send some things to Judith and her family! They would absolutely love that. Whatever you think! And for my comp, just whatever! Lots of treats, yeah? :) I miss our food! But everyone, I don't have much time because my comp took of most of it. So next week, he has 20 minutes and I have more. Ha! But I have to go for now, I wish I could write more. Just know that I am still doing so good and that I am feeling all of your prayers. Especially with my scriptures!!!! I hope that all is well back in the states, and that you all are doing well. Please remember to keep me in your prayers, yeah? I love this work, I love the Lord, and I love all of you so very much. Thank you for all that you do for me! You keep me going! Love your son, brother, and friend, ELDER JORDAN VAN CHRISTENSEN Till next week. :)
One from last week I forgot to send!
Dasha, the little girl!
