Hey Guys
How is everyone doing this lovely day? its a great monday... also my last. its been good so far. I washed, I played soccer with heap (we will be having an all mexico norte team at BYU by the way) and now we are thinking about the food.... i mean what we are going to eat! It's all good.

So before I tell all my adventures, answers for Mom. You will need more than 200 pesos to get from the airport to the offices. Its normally about like 300, just one way. but 200 american dollars will be good, just need to change it into smaller bills. Getting the taxi from the hotel, it will probably be late when we get back from presidentes house. We are leaving from the mission home at 3, get to Presente's house at like 4:30pm eat for two or three hours and come back. So we will back here at like 8 9? Skype sounds great, thats so cool, I'm so excited to see my little sobrino!!! It's going to be crazy this weekend, but Im thinking about calling mom later this week, like saturday to just make sure everything is cool and in order. But yeah, i think i answered all the questions. Also, i love you guys.

I cant believe its over already. But no worries, we are still doing work. We had one baptism this last week and two confirmations and we are doing 2 and 2 this week. Going out in a blaze of glory. haha I tried calling the family Aguilar and i couldn't get a hold of them, but hopefully today so that we can go to the temple. And yeah... I don't know what else to write haha

ok sorry this is short but I dont know what else to say. I love my mission, i know this is the work of God. I had the privlege, the honor and the blessing to carry my Saviors name every day. I wasn't perfect. I wasn't the greatest or the most popular, but i did my job. I love this gospel and have a testimoy of the blessings that everyone can receive by living it. I love my Savior. I am nothing without Him. I love my mission

to the moon and back...

Hey guys,

How are you guys doing today? Today isn't my real p day because this Wednesday we are going to go to the temple as a zone and Presidente changed our p-day for that, but he decided it would be better not to have 200 angry moms calling about why their son didn't write today. So here i am writing.
I'm going to try and answer all the questions about the trip and stuff before I start. I asked Pres mom if they needed anything and they said they were good, so yeah surpise them. I think green chile would be kind of joke though... there is alot here.
The car sounds fine and the hotel. Heap was a little sad but he can live with it. Yes mom, you can look stuff up to do as well, it's not my trip to Mexico, I have been here for 2 years but yeah we just have an idea of what we want to do, nothing set in stone.
Also, talked to Presidente and he said that I will still be a missionary until I get released.... as in, I have to wear the badge and the tag 'till I'm home... i know... so cool haha but whatever, I don't think dad has too, but he can if he wants to =) .
Also... I cant remember what else... oh yeah, yeah sounds great with all the people coming for the 4th of July. Should be a good old Christensen party haha even if its just for Conway... much love little sobrino. I saw the picture that mom sent me today... he is a hairly little man but i love him regardless. I think I answered everything. (He didn't).
Also heads up, the rainy season just started this week. Yeap, definitely walked home soaking wet like 2 times this week. It usually comes in the afternoon so we should be good.

Okay my life. Saturday, Heap, the generation and I all went to Teotihuacan, it was fun. I love my boys. So yeah, know when we go, Heap and I can be some excellent tour guides. And we are great at bargaining. That will come in handy know that mom is going to love shopping here. I am soo excited for you guys to come and see Mexico, its going to be great.
Mom, dont even worry about a thing. The best memories are when things went wrong.... haha jk jk jk i love you.

My comp and I had three baptisms this week. It was great. And we have two more for this week and two for the last week. I might be tired but im still kicking. It was funny because we had conference this last week and every time anyone mentioned about how we need to finish strong or that the mission is too short, Presidente would just look at me and say "isnt that right Elder Christensen?" haha it was funny

Sterl, you rock bro. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I know your ozzies lost to Germany but i hope you have a great day and do work son. USA and Mexico are riding the tie train haha i love world cup, its soo crazy here how everything stops for a mexico game.

All right fam and fans, I'm out. I love my misison and i love every one of you. This is the true chruch of God and his son Jesus Christ. I have no doubt of it. Be great
