“'Traveling has got to be so hard. Oh, it’s so tiring,'” Sister Kathy Christofferson, wife of Elder D. Todd Christofferson, says people often remark in reference to the frequent travels she and her husband are often assigned to. “And it is,” but there is something about being with members of the Church around the world that reenergizes and rejuvenates them in the Lord’s work, she says.
“We pinch ourselves to think that we can go and be with these wonderful people,” Sister Christofferson said in a new video released by Church News.
Elder D. Todd Christofferson and his wife, Sister Kathy Christofferson, recently accompanied President Russell M. Nelson during his Southeast Asia ministry and emphasized that the greatest sight they have the privilege of seeing over the course of their travels is the light in the eyes of the Latter-day Saints.
“You can see the sights around the world, the tourist destinations, the go-to destinations, everybody wants to see those,” Sister Christofferson remarked. “And we say, ‘That’s very nice but when you’re with the members, you can’t measure that. It’s just phenomenal to be in their presence.’”
“Every soul is precious,” Elder Christofferson added.
