Hey hows it going?
it sounds like everything is going great!
I am sure Chad will have a great time in EFY, well i didn't like it that much, but he is a lot cooler than i am.
i am sure that he is a lot better than i am on the wakeboard, is he still using my board and bindings? thats why he's getting good! just kidding, i cant wait to pick it up again.
we are working great here in Chile. Presidente May goes home tomorrow and president Essig is the new President. it was nice that for my whole mission i was able to have the same Pres., i already had my interview with him last week, which was strange because normally you do that the last day of your mission.
thank you for your prayers for the people here in Chile.
Love you guys,
Elder Nelson

Hey, Como Están?
we have had a very rainy week here in Curacaví and its been cold. i forgot how much i love the heat and the sun. my companion is loving the weather here because he is from Alaska. thanks so much for taking all that time to help me out with my classes, i know its a pain. If you could try and make sure the classes can transfer, just in case. not much is new, just working hard and trying to get people to go to church. the level of dedicaion is a little low here when its cold and rainy out. especially if its fathers day, not even the members in our little ward went this last sunday, much less the investigators. but thats life on the mission. i hope that you injoyed the camping trip. On the Lake? Did you do something for fathers day?
Well i love you guys and i will talk to you next week,
Elder Nelson

Hey, Happy fathers day!!!
i wanted you write you and let you know how much i love and appreciate everything you have taught and done for me. 
i personally am so grateful for you example. that example has helped me so much as a missionary and i have used it to help the lives of my investigators. 
i hope to become like you and that i can have the same relationship with my kids. 
you have been there always and have sacrificed much for your family. your sacrifice does not go unnoticed, and your Children love and respect you.
i  have unfortunately seen many families destroyed and torn apart for lack of a good father figure. 
I had to leave and go to another country and see the problems of other families to realize how good i got it.
Love you Dad,
Your son

its good to know that your not counting down! jk 
i am really excited to see you guys again also, so dont worry about it. but we are working hard and trying to work the hardest that we can to finish well, and baptizing!!! 

the work moves forward. i found out that President May will still do my last interview to thats great. i heard about the fires there in Arizona, they are even here on the news in chile and all the members have told me about them, knowing that i am from Arizona.
we are working with some great people here and the ward here is progressing a lot.

i love missionary work, and hope that it is a part of me my whole life. 

love you guys and am always praying for you.

sounds like things are going great.
first things first, i got your package so dont worry. and thank you so much for what you sent, it was great to see the pictures and i was dying to eat some beef jerky.
Also i got the flight planes last week. i dont remember everything but, i leave monday the 18th in the afternoon and get there the 19th in the morning in the airport. i dont remember the exact times but next week i will bring the paper with me to let you know.
so stevan came back to the valley. thats great!! i cant wait to see him. is he going to asu to study or wheres he going?
here in curacaví we had changes today, my last change before going home. i got a new companion, and left on really good terms with my old comp. so i feel good about it. my new comps name is Elder Clark from Alaska, which is awesome and a problem because we will be talking about hunting and fishing a lot.
i learned that Presidente May leaves the 28th of june, so my last interviews will be with the new president, that is a shame, but thats the way things go sometimes.
i love you guys and thanks for everything!!
