Dear family, We had a great week!!! Oh and good news! I'm staying in Vacaville with elder wride for another transfer!! Woohoo! We are really excited. At missionary leadership council when they pulled up the transfer sheet and we saw we were staying together I swear like 800 pounds dropped off my shoulders!!! I'm so happy to be staying!! I absolutely hate transfers. It is by far the worst part about the mission. I hate packing and saying goodbye to all the people I love and getting a new companion is hard and going to a new place is hard and transfers are just stressful. So I'm very thankful I have avoided transferring for another six weeks! I love this place and I love elder wride so I'm very very happy and excited!! Also something funny is that Elder wride and I are the only companionship in our entire zone that is staying the same! Every other companionship is getting changed around! Which is good. A lot of the problems we have had will be fixed! Elder Wride has had a rough week. He has been sick. Saturday morning he was really down and we stayed in till after lunch so he could get some good rest. He felt a lot better after that. On Wednesday we had an awesome awesome night!! Actually leading up to the night it had been a downer day. It was raining and no one was out and we didn't have any appointments or anything all day so we were doing what we could to find and be effective but it was a slow day. We were worried as well because we had splits with the young men that night and no appointments to take them too which is lame. But anyways, we went on splits and I went with one young priest to see Veronica Chavez and elder wride went to go see Craig baker. When we got to Veronica's house she let us right in and asked if we would read with her to help her understand the Book of Mormon and figure out what is going on! Her daughter Vanessa sat in on the lesson with us and it was great!! It is always such a great feeling to help someone relate to the scriptures on a personal level!! As we read through chapter one it was quite easy to help her see that she was not only reading Lehis story, but also her story! She was reading about herself and her family and it the spirit was just really strong as they made that connection and understanding flooded in. I love the scriptures and I love the Book of Mormon! I invited Vanessa the daughter to be baptized if she received an answer and she accepted! At the same time elder wride had a great lesson with Craig and he said that he loved church and really wants to be baptized still. Well I must say this week was a Blur. And I have finally been hit with the sickness! Saturday I was feeling a little under but then Sunday was rough and last night was horrible haha. I was so plugged up I couldn't sleep and I kept waking up. My mouth and throat were super dry from breathing through my mouth oh man yeah it was rough. So we slept in a little this morning because we are both sick. It was funny because all last night we were both just sneezing and coughing and breathing loud from our mouths and sniffing our noses haha we are both sickos haha. I have been hitting the airborn hard and vitamin c so hopefully it goes away quick. Being sick is the worst! Soooo yeah that's what's going on here. We are excited for this new transfer. The numbers for our zone this week were horrible...it was pretty surprising. And we were especially disappointed because we did pretty good and we had meetings on Friday all day and we were sick Saturday and Sunday and we still managed to teach most of our people. But everyone else taught like 2 lessons . What is that?? What do you spend your time on the whole week if you only teach two lessons?? I don't get it. I don't even see how that is possible. It is frustrating. So our zone is getting switched up and that will be good. Well we got a later start on the day so I need to get going but I love you and I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Also I got your letters from the last week so you don't have to worry about that. Have a great week!!! Love you. Elder Nelson. I don't eat out lol I pack lunch!
