Hi I'm Russell

I am from SLC. I play the Irish Tin Whistle. I tickle ivory. Im a missionary in the Japan Tokyo Mission. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I am Russell Christensen. Currently I am serving a LDS mission in Tokyo, Japan. It is the best. I love getting to see Japan and experiencing the culture. I grew up in SLC, UT. I grew up in the neighborhood where the movie, "The Sandlot," was filmed. Serious! My house is 8 houses away from Smalls house. I love to play the Irish Tin Whistle and the Piano. It is Satisfaction. I love jokes, joking, and making jokes. Without laughter life is a soundless tune. I love making weird, dry jokes. Here is a joke: What would happen if you took Christ out of my life?... I would be Russ Ensen. HA. Get it???

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Christ. I chose this religion because I found out it was true through sincere prayer, thought, and action. I also had loving parents that taught me right values. The teachings of the church are way good and direct my life down a road that I know is satisfactory. You can never go wrong when it comes to the Gospel of Jesus Christ that has been provided to us. The Lord has given us this opportunity of life on earth for us to learn and grow for ourselves. Our life is a gift. And we need to treat it like a gift. And through the atonement of Jesus Christ, this gift is made possible to us. It is because of him that are here so we should thank him by following in his foot steps. Jesus Christ is the life and light of the world we live in today. I choose to follow him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an active member. Also as being a missionary. I decided to go on an LDS Mission to help spread the good news. Everyone deserves to hear about Christ and I want to give everyone that opportunity. I love helping others. And through the Gospel we can help others so greatly. The Gospel is true and it improves peoples lives. Through teaching people about Jesus Christ it allows people to feel the spirit of God. It also helps me feel the spirit of God. When I help people learn about Jesus Christ, I learn about him myself. A great way to learn something for yourself is preparing and teaching people what you are learning. It helps you understand a lot!
