Hi I'm Abraham "Abe" M. Christianson
I was baptized in August of 1995 while in basic training for the Army Reserves. I had little religious activity during my childhood and became intrested as a teen. I was seventeen when I was baptized. This was after a long list of little things that led the way.
Why I am a Mormon
This is the only faith that I have truly experienced the Holy Sprit and felt comfortable. This is after going to a couple of Lutheran churches and Cathlic churches.
How has the Holy Ghost helped you?
I had never driven through Minneapolis Minnesota before by myself, and I had to drive a resident from the assisted living place I worked at in Northern Wisconsin to the University hospital in Minneapolis so that he could receive a new kidney one night. I found the hospital by following the directions I had printed off before I left, but when I was about to return home I realized that I did not have the directions to get home. I started driving around looking for the freeway to get home and I said a little prayer asking for some help. I started driving down a street not realizing that it was a one way street and i was going the wrong way, but when I did realize that I was going the wrong way I went to turn around. That is when I heard a still small voice that told me to "keep going" I tried to ignore it and attempted to turn around, but I heard it again and felt something I couldn't explain, so I kept on going. After about a mile I saw what I was looking for, an entrance to the freeway home. I thanked Heavenly Father for the help and found my way home. I arrived home safely and my resident received a new kidney.
How I live my faith
I attend sacrament and partake of the sacrament on Sundays and read the scriptures. I follow the Word of Wisdom and pray daily. I offer aid to those I can and when I have been called to serve I serve with all I have.
