Elder Jackson york Nielsen
New Jersey Morristown mission
It was a short email this week from Elder Nielsen but we are counting the days to be able to Skype him on Christmas Day. This will be the last call until 2 weeks before he comes home so the next time we talk we will be asking him what he wants for dinner! Yay!! Here is a little bit of his letter home. Merry Christmas friends! Thanks for supporting our sweet boy. -K
This week was pretty good. I really love the members here and they're all so nice to us. One of my favorite families gave us a little christmas present that was just so sweet and we have like 2 dinners on christmas eve and 2 on christmas lol. Whenever I eat food by myself I always have the smallest portion sizes because I'm so tired of being full. So it'll be nice. I sang a solo at a Christmas fireside last night in front of like 400 people and it went really well. I sang Angels We Have Heard on High. I accidentally changed the line "and the mountains in reply" to "and the mountains in disguise" but they're both as abstract so hopefully no one noticed my shout out to undercover terrain formations. It was nice though.
Other than that, this week was nice. This area is a lot like Red Bank so I know what I'm doing but I got so used to places like UC and Lizzy where there's just seas of people outside that the change is notable. But challenges are fun and I'm a happy boy so what else do you need amiright? I was a part of this cool Catholic tradition on Saturday night with some members and nonmembers and it was so fun! Also we ate yummy food. So basically my week has been good. I miss family but that's ok because I talk to them next week!!! So excited.
So basically life is good for me and I just really love you a lot ok.
Your boy. Jack. ❤️
