Another Great Week in the City of Tomball!

(Email from Elder Christensen dated 1/26/2015) I am a little behind on posting:

We are continuing to see the Lords hand here in the Tomball 2nd area and the Klein 2 zone! We are still trying to do what we can to help out some of the surrounding area so that they can also see more success in the areas. 

So about 2 days this week we were in other missionaries areas trying to help them out. And we saw some good stuff. One of the areas we felt needed some help was up in Magnolia! We have some great missionaries up there, but they have just been having a harder time this last transfer finding! They are working so hard to find. So we decided to go to there area and see some miracles! 

And as always the Lord provides! I went with one of the newer Elders in the mission named Elder Hanks. He is a good Elder! So we talked about how we were going to go knocking from 6-8, and we had them pick the area just previous to going. And we went out! It gets darker a lot faster, and so the neighborhood we went to had a lot of big dogs, and its so dark you can't tell where they are you can just tell they are close! But we continued to knock even with the dogs out everywhere, and we were probably knocking for about 1 hour and 50 minutes, and we had about 4 people say that we could come back and visit. 

During this time we were talking a lot about the need to have the faith to find. I was talking to him about how we need to have the belief that people are prepared and then we will be blessed for it! And the Lord blessed us again. 

At 7:50 We knocked on the last door we had planned on doing and a couple walked outside and started talking to us saying that they have been looking for a church. We were on there porch for the next 40 minutes teaching them about parts of the restoration and the plan of salvation. They had worries and fears about not having enough faith, and so we were able to talk with them and by the end the spirit had testified to them. It was so amazing! They asked us if we could come back and keep teaching them! They were very sincere! 

So as we went out together that night to find those were prepared the Lord provided! I hope it was a good experience for Elder Hanks. He seemed to come out of it more confident, so we are excited to see the miracles continue! 

Also this week we met with some more of our investigators. Our top investigators right now are Nikki and Pamela. They are two young girls in a part member family in our ward. One is 9 and the other is 11. And these girls have been taught over the past several months, and I think that they are ready for baptism. I was very surprised with how much they knew and could remember. We went through the baptismal interview questions with them, and some of them we had to word a little different so they could understand but they then answered great!  So right now with them we are planning on having there baptismal service on Feb 7th. So we are excited to continue working towards that with them! 

  The Lord is just blessing us so much right now! I am just so grateful to be apart of this wonderful work! This gospel changes lives! We are so blessed to be apart of it. I would just please again invite you to continue to look for service opportunities, as well as chances to bring others to Christ. 

I hope y'all have a wonderful week! 

Elder Joshua V. Christensen
