First Few Days MTC

Sunday night we traveled up to have a pre MTC Christensen party at Dearden's in Henefer Utah. Here are Uncle Joe, Stephen and Darell right before the taco feed.

Rachel showed up with her cute twins, Halli and Carli.  Proud grandma Julie is holding the cutie pies!

Grandpa Roger does scary tricks with one of the baby girls.

I had to do a small remember when with the twins too!  They are way cuter than Aaron and Bryan are!

We arrived at the MTC on Monday only to find our favorite security guard, Vaughn, there to greet us.

We always wanted to be able to do this!  Pointing to our small island of Cyprus is a thrill.

The MTC is one amazement after another.  It is so organized and well run, to say nothing of totally spiritual every minute of the day.

The MTC remembers every detail, down to the decorations for Christmas, just to make the missionaries remember the reason we are all here--to learn to bring souls to Christ.  What an honor to be a part of such a cause!


  1. You guys look good. I love the pic of dad in front of the BBall court waving, It looks so "Dad like" Take a picture of the cafeteria,i want to see all the food!

  2. We are so happy to know you are in the MTC. I know you will love every minute. We can't wait to follow your adventures and hear about your spiritual experiences. When we pray for the missionaries we will especially be praying for you!
    Love, Lynn and David Lee

  3. How fun is this! I love the pictures. I noticed however that I am not in any of the pictures....

  4. Holy cow! I love all of these pictures. I am so glad Jennifer taught you how to blog. I can't believe those twins! How did you do it 40 years ago, Mom? I think you guys look really good too. I hope Dad gets over his cold. Every time I have talked to you guys, he has been coughing and sniffing a ton.

  5. We were so happy to see you before you went into the MTC. By now you are probably in (on) Cypress) and learning a whole bunch of new stuff. Hoipe you have time to keep this blog updated. We love you guys.
