Soooo, I don't know very much about what I want to do after the
mission. I feel like I get more confused as I go on. But I feel like
as I get closer to going home somehow I'll figure it out or else God
will let me know.
Elders ride and I have been out hitting the streets all week it
feels like. We need to find some new peeps. Another week with no
investigators at church! You can only do so much for these people
without getting annoying and pushing them too much. So we will
continue to work with the people we have but we are making a concerted
effort to find more people. It has been a very slow process with them
and their problems. And we have been dealing with the head honchos of
our mission on us all for more baptisms. The email this week kinda
ticked us off. The believers are baptizing is what they (the
Assistants) said. But I'm pretty confident that I believe and I am
doing my best to help these real people with their real problems. I
guess that's not good enough though? Sorry for venting that out haha.
We had a great lesson with Veronica this week! We taught her
about the sacrament and answered some questions she had about our
doctrine as compared to Jehovah witness. It was good and she felt the
spirit and she seemed to like the member that we brought with us, bro
Each week I have out here is such a blessing. It's hard to
convey to you all the many small experiences I have each day that mean
so much. That change me and shape me and that allow me to learn and
grow. I'm so thankful for my companion. He is quickly becoming my
favorite. We have a lot of fun together. Life is usually pretty trying
as a missionary in different ways and at different times but it's
constantly trying. And when times get hard. It's pretty hard. But
having a great companion and being unified and sticking together and
having fun even when it's hard and frustrating is such a blessing. So
I'm very thankful for that. Having a companion has helped to impress
on me the importance of choosing the right eternal companion....def
can't mess that one up haha.
So I have to be honest I don't really have much to say right
now....oh!! Thanks for the quest bars!! They are so good.. I wasn't
expecting anything so it was a welcome surprise! Elder wride calls the
bars "space food"
Happy st Patricks day by the way! I am currently not wearing
any green so I will need to change my tie when I get back to apt. I
totally forgot this morning! Didn't even cross my mind. Last night we
had corned beef..it was pretty good!! Kinda salty but I really enjoyed
it! I'm still trying to figure out how you corn beef and what that
means though haha hopefully it wasn't too unhealthy!
I think I'm forgetting something that I was supposed to
respond to in your emails...but I don't remember. And I don't have
them...maybe I'll check that after lunch and then send my response if
Well I feel like I'm just blabbing now. I can't wait to blab
in person. It's much more fun that way. I always feel bad writing
short letters to you mom especially after that time you said you love
it when you scroll down and there is a whole nother page to read! Well
that won't be the case this time haha so I'm sorry to disappoint you.
I love you so much!! Thanks for everything! Talk to you next week!!
Love elder Nelson
