Belen, New Mexico


Elder Durling & Elder Shank

I Know Now More Than Ever

This week we received Elder Shank and we are now a trio here in Belen! Its exciting to be in a trio once again and work with two other great missionaries. We taught quite a few lessons this week and even had the pleasure to teach the sunday school class over zoom about last weeks reading in the Book of Mormon for the come follow me curriculum. The best way to learn is teach and being able to teach about the Book of Mormon helped me remember the central message of the Book of Mormon which is that Jesus is the Christ and through him we can have peace and joy through hard times and be saved from our mistakes and death.

As well during a quite moment on Sunday afternoon while praying to God an overwhelming feeling of love came to my heart. Now I don't always have such powerful experiences with prayer but this time was different, there was nothing worrying me, I had no fear only peace as God comforted me with feelings of immense love. This is what we try to teach people is that, that feeling of love can be theirs too when they recognize God is real and is their literal Father in Heaven. I know now more than ever that God truly exists and communicates to us on a personal level through the feelings in our heart. And the Albuquerque New Mexico mission is where God has put me in order to learn that.

I love you all! Have a wonderful week.
Elder Christopherson
