Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a great week! This week has been crazy!! Had an awesome birthday on monday, and thanks to everyone who sent cards or letters!! It was much appreciated :) Had zone conference this week as well, Elder Clark and I won the cleanest car!! Victory, victory... haha. We also had stake conference this weekend! Elder Payne of the area seventy came, it was way awesome!! Very spiritual. Before the actual conference there was a meeting/fireside type deal for new members, returning members or investigating people. It was very awesome, the spirit was incredibly strong and it was great to hear testimonies that were either just started or just being found again. Yesterday we went and gave a blessing and it was great as well. I was the one who gave it, and the spirit was very strong in directing me on what to say and do. I love it!! So far our baptisms have fallen through but we have some sweet work coming up soon! We have a lesson today with someone who is practically a member already so we're excited. man I love being a missionary!! Haha. I testify that this is where you can find the most joy in life. I testify that the Book of Mormon is God's word, and that if you want to find out if it's true, all you have to do is read and ask it. It's so great to see people doing this and changing their lives. I wish everyone a happy thanksgiving and may we all enjoy amazing turkeyness!! The church is true! -- Elder Nielson!! Elder Clark and I rolling in style all day everyday!! haha
Happy birthday to me, Happy birthday to me!! Ok that's too annoying to type it all out haha. This week has been pretty good!! We still have a baptism this weekend if everything goes right, so keep your fingers crossed! We got a call on Friday night that we were asked to speak on sunday for 15 minutes each, so we had that opportunity to do that. Which is fun cause as a missionary your resources are limited and I'm not good at writing talks anyway but we did really well. I know that it was the spirit helping me to write it, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten anything written down haha. The Spirit is such a great blessing to have and I'm so grateful for it to be constantly in my life as long as I'm worthy. What a great blessing that is for being baptized by proper authority.
So let's see what else has happened. Oh, I saw my second police standoff since I've been on my mission! This time it was at a 7-11 haha. Not much else has been going on that I can think of, I just love doing this and being here. My comp is awesome, my district is great. I love all the people I've had the great opportunity to meet. It's so great to help benefit other's lives. And man, it's great to see mountains again haha. I love you all, the church is true!
Hola from the CoSp!!!
It's so great to be back!! I love it here, I love my comp, life is good haha. This week has been awesome. We've had such a good time at dinners with members and other great fun things! I feel so blessed to be here. Not only that but we have great news!! We're having a baptism on the 19th!! Holla!! Haha. Elder Clark and I thought for a while about what day to give the person he has been working with for awhile, and we decided on the 19th. They prayed about it for a day and then told us yes. It was so great. I guess it all started with another member who decided to turn their life around and they bore such a great testimony to Elder Clark and I last night about how much happier they have been since they turned their life around a month ago. I love being involved in this work, and am so blessed to be a part of it, even if its miniscule part. So funny stories tho, clark and I colored a sweet black velvet picture and found this picture on a frame of a tropic beach. It's been pretty epic with all the decorations we've been putting up. I would attach pics but no time. Love you all! -- Elder Nielson!!
Transfer times have come again! I'm going back to colorado springs! It'll be a nice change from where I've been, even tho I'm going to miss goodland greatly. And happy halloween! Things have been good here, not much new to report on except for we had our first snow of the year on wednesday. It was crazy. We went to a halloween party yesterday for a little while, it was awesome. There was a dip that looked like a face. Epic. Anyway I hope everyone had a great halloween! Love you all!
