I am really looking forward to not writing these emails every week. It will be so much better to just talk to you and tell you about my life in person!! Our week was a little bit slow with transfers and zone meeting and being sick. I'm still sick but it is getting better at this point finally!! First of all, we went to a funeral on Saturday for some well known old stake president here in Vacaville. It was a very very good service. ( we went in hopes of finding people to teach :))I really felt full of love towards a man I didn't even know and I felt even more love for each of you. I think on the top of my list in regards to what I do I want to be close to my wonderful,family and be able to come home and visit easily and with not a lot of expense. I'm super excited to be here in Vacaville for another transfer! I love this place. We are excited about our zone and the new missionaries! They seem to all be really great missionaries. Most of them are. Me and elder wride are just doing our best to finish strong and endure to the end. We have both Covenanter with each other that we will not be like some of the other missionaries that we have seen go home that totally lose it and go nuts haha. I'm thankful that I have had great teachers to learn from about missionary work and I understand how important my time is here. It's so easy to get pulled away from your purpose as a missionary. I am worried that coming home it will be even harder. In fact I already know it will be. But luckily on my mission I have developed a great testimony of the "small and simple things." It's not the big things that make us who we are it is the small things that we do every day that determine the strength of our faith and testimony and conversion. Things like reading, praying, and home teaching, are small and simple trials of faith that we face each and ever day of our lives. It is a sacrifice of our time and agency to do those things and as we consistently do them the blessings flow and the windows of heaven are opened upon us. I know that to be true. Pray for our investigators Craig baker and Veronica Gloria and Vanessa Chavez , and Paula Ruiz that they will come to church this next week!! Despite all our efforts we had zero investigators at church this week. What a waste of a Sunday.(not really, but you know what I mean) You only have so many Sundays on a mission to bring investigators to church! So it was sad for us. We thought for sure that Craig at least would be coming.. Luckily, there is always another Sunday. I know that The Lord has definetly been patient and forgiving with me as I have failed to live up to what I said I would do, I guess we can be patient and loving with him :) So I just realized I have a bunch of "lasts" coming up. My last general conference on the mish, my last zone conference, my last temple trip, my last call home, it's a weird feeling. It's also really weird to be basically the oldest missionaries in the mission. Minus a few. We have two elders in our zone one that goes home this transfer and another the next and then it's our turn. I must admit I am excited for the flight home. Anderson and wride will both be on the plane with me and I have been companions with both of them so it will be fun to make that flight and meet their families at the airport haha. We always joke around that when we get there we will say hi to all of you and then take off together and go hang out haha. It will be fun. Alright well I'm excited for today. We are about to shop at Costco with a member! I'm going to buy a ton of chicken for the rest of the transfer lol. And also some fish oil. And we get to ball with Volksen and have dinner with him again tonight! It should be a great pday!! I love each of you and hope you have a great week!! Love you!! Elder Nelson.
