It's The Rainy Season

Hello Everyone,
     Well it hasn't been that hot down here, it is the rainy season, there have been some big storms and some flooding cause the ground here is mostly sandy.  I am in a small town called Tohatchi in the Gallup Stake and there is no one around us!  We are in the middle of no where!  I feel so lonely when we are not doing work that I get homesick.  I draw pictures and I learned how to catch flies in a water bottle, ya weird stuff I know.  Besides exercising and planning at night I am really bored!!  We have a couple of games but it's hard to play when it is only the two of you in a trailer!  Oh and when I first got here I opened the door and I almost cried because my companion's old companion did not clean and there was mold everywhere!  Mold growing in the sink, on all the plates, in the shower and in the toilet!!  I have been cleaning a lot and bit by bit it is mostly gone.  All that is left is the stove and microwave.
     Thanks for the thought you send mom, it is nice boost.  I keep asking myself how am I going to survive here for 5 more weeks and is scares me, but if I trust in the Lord then it will all be okay!
     Yes as you can tell by the picture the mission president sent, I am the tallest one out here so far.  Would you please send my bike stand?  That will be important because I have a couple of projects I would like to do for some non-members who are awesome!  They keep me and my companion sane. 
     Well I think my time is almost up.  I love you and a good scripture to read is Jeremiah 51: 20-21.

Love you all,
Elder Christensen

    "The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."

    Gotta love President Hinckley! Remember that you are in our prayers.
