February 22, 2016 e-mail still happy!

BenBeeeeeen! I will see you at the Y then! Apart from being with your favorite older siblings, what are you excited for?
We had a great lesson this last week with N the week before last, but he wasn't able to meet with us  last Saturday or come to church on Sunday. Since the very beginning, we've taught him about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and used it as a background for the other things that we teach. Although we've talked with him about faith and taught him what it means, he still hasn't decided that it's something he wants in his life. I think that Alma 32 is a fantastic scripture to read with him! He doesn't feel like a relationship with God could really help in life, and when compared with a life where he has a lot of covenants to keep, he doesn't think it is worth the sacrifice. 
Why do we need God? What does a relationship with God have to offer us? 
I think both of these questions are worth considering for ourselves, and we are hope that while we teach N he will find that answer for himself and be guided to make the right choice.

I can't wait for this next week!
I'm going to try and share more of my experiences on Facebook too so keep your eyes open!

Love you,
Elder Christensen
