Hey Family!! i hope everything is going good and that everyone is healthy and enjoying life. i love the mission and the opportunity we have to serve the Lord. i am doing great and really enjoying the mission. my comp is great and we are working hard and finding people to teach. i hope you're all having family scripture study and family prayer everyday, and family night. i have a great testimony of these things. they work, i have seen them save families and marriages. the gospel is true and Christ lives. i have felt his love and his sacrifice for me in a way so personal and so real, that there is no way that i can deny it. through the atonement of Jesus Christ comes the power to change, to purify our hearts, and be clean and worthy to receive all of the blessings that God has in store for us. i love you guys, and your influence as parents and as brothers and sisters, has made me who i am, and has helped me be an instrument in the hands of God. the other day i found this quote of Joseph Smith, y me gusto, it says:

“I am ready to be offered a sacrifice for this people; for what can our enemies do? Only kill the body and their power is then at an end. Stand firm my friends. Never flinch. Do not seek to save your lives, for he that is afraid to die for the truth will lose eternal life. Hold out to the end; and we shall be resurrected and become like Gods, and reign in celestial kingdoms, principalities and eternal dominions.”

we are truly in a great work. Never flinch. never be afraid to share you testimony with others, to help them receive the truth, and the happiness that we enjoy. thank you for your prayers and the support that you all have shown the Obra misional. les amo!

Con amor,
Elder Nelson
