Dear Family,
Sorry that I didn't get a chance before to email you. Today is my first p-day and I just got my email. I hope by now you got my letters or will get them soon. I saw the Platts on Tues. It was nice to see a face I knew for a change. I saw them at the big tuesday night devotional which was great. Brother and Sister Groberg talked about missionary work and helping people get to the temple and how that is what we should focus on and how sometimes we get thinking only about getting people in the water. By the way Groberg is the guy that the movie the other side of Heaven was based on. He did a great job. So missionary life has been busy as is expected. I'm not as homesick which is good. We were suppose to go to the temple and do a session but as we got there I realized I had forgotten my temple recommend. By the time we ran all the way back we missed our session. My comp. wasn't too happy with me after that. Thanks for the food. It was good and it was nice to get a package. Tell Jessie whatever she wants to send I would love to get and thanks for the letter. I do need Jessie's address and any other you can give me. I don't have many pictures yet as there hasn't been much time to take them but when I get her address I can send the chip with what I have. I forgot to tell you we also taught the first lesson the other day in english for the first time. It was great! The spirit was so strong and I know that what we were teaching was true. I love the gospel and know it is God's true church. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and I know it testifys of Christ and is the most correct book on the earth. I love you all and hope you are doing well.
Love Elder Nelson


  1. So very cool! I hadn't read through the previous letters since he left. Of course I read them at work so now I have tears running down my face. I'm terrible at writing letters, so - Jes - can you tell him I said hi and give him our best from the Morelands? Thanks!

  2. We're so glad he's having such good experiences. Much love from the Jones

  3. I will for sure Kristi. I'm sending him a package this week. I'll send the love from all. Thanks so much for reading and support. :)
