The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Local girl on a mission to Australia


Goldendale native Addie Christensen, daughter of Rene and Cori, is headed off to Australia for the next 18 months.

Christensen, who is two years into a nursing degree at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, decided to take a break from school to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“I’m looking forward to getting to teach,” she said.

“I love people and I love the gospel and I want to help people and see their life change,” she said.
