Christmas 2007

We blink our eyes and six months passed by. It's true, when your having fun time flies. We learn on a daily basis that there are no coincidences, they are just Gods way of remaining anonymous so our faith in Him can grow. We wanted to reflect with you the blessings of the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ. As we look to the light of the world and strive to emulate His teachings we have found peace in troubled times. We know we must do the same as the wise men of old. They sought out Christ and found him. Those who are wise still seek him today.
We are overwhelmed with love for the missionaries serving in Colorado Denver South mission. Each of them has a story to tell of their testimonies and experiences. We can't get enough of them! We were blessed to visit Israel before we came on this mission. While there we got gifts for each of the missionaries. As we shared these sacred things from Jerusalem in our Christmas Conference, our lives were changed forever. It is no sacrifice at all to be doing the Lords work at Christmas time...the best time to be on a mission. We hope Christ will be in each of your lives throughout the whole year. Merry Christmas! President and Sister Christison and Mason (the Assistants assistant) (If you will look again on this blog page in January we promise to update it. we might even tell you about our favorite Sister missionary, Randee)

President and Sister Christison are official now! Once you have been through a six week cycle, transfers and all then you can actually understand what it is you are doing. We have been here now seven weeks. We have spoken in ten sacrament meetings, four firesides, been to the airport three times, cooked what feels like five thanksgiving dinners, had 100 people for family home evening (that's alot of cookies) and passed out cell phones to all the missionaries. We absolutely love it and the missioniaries, but the best part is the spirit you feel on a daily base and the baptisms are a highlight every week. Mason is so helpful we think we will keep him here to serve. He teams up with missionaries, drives vehicles to places, does arts and crafts in the office, every errand you can imagine, lets his mom beat him in ping pong and studies, studies, studies. We hope your lives are wonderful, safe, happy, and full of missionary experiences.

colorado denver south mission 2007-2010

Hello Family and Friends, They say that coming out into the missionfield is like drinking from a fire hydrant. While it is true we are having a great time. We've met every missionary and toured the area meeting with Stake and Branch Presidents, Bishops, and lots of investigators. We've held open houses for FHE for investigators and we've spoken in several firesides, lots of sacrament meetings, and we are counting the trips that we will make to the airport (an hour away) and the trips over the mountain (four to eight hours away). It has been an amazing experience so far with one transfer week under our belt we're ready for the next one. Our first zone conference was amazing. Mason has been adopted as one of the assistants to the President; they made him a name tag that says "Elder Wonnabe". He's gone team teaching, tracting, errands for the office, and even spent two days in the mountains being a companion to an Elder because his compoanion had to be brought into Denver from altitude sickness. To summarize our first six weeks (which is what our calendar is run by) physically exhausting, emotionally tender, spiritually high, and wonderful. We love the people here, they are so supportive of missionary work and the missionaries are the Lords best.
