Elder Jackson york Nielsen
New Jersey Morristown mission
Well, another transfer down and Jack has been sent to his last area. He had loved Union City and all the wonderful people he has met there. Now it's off to new adventures. -K
Hi cute mom. It's me: your boy. 😊
So I have some news! I'm going back to Elizabeth to be a zone leader there! Like what? That's so fun!!! I get to hang out with all of my Lizzy friends again! My companion is Elder Sanhuesa who was my zone leader while I was there. He's from Chile. So basically I'm filling the spot of Elder Justice while I was there. I'm really excited about it. I'm sad to leave my friends here but así es la vida. I'm super excited about Elizabeth.
We had the nicest baptism of Jean this past Friday. What a funny guy. He's from Haiti. He got baptized and then when he came out of the water he lifted his arms up like he got a touchdown and was like "YES!" Lol at that guy.
We just ordered a pizza. I have to pack tonight which is never that fun. But that's ok because I get to go see some of my friends because I'l be in the same ward that I left! It also is a super successful area and that's cool. I love Elizabeth. And guess who is coming to fill my spot in UC? ELDER DOVE! How fun. Love that guy. So things have worked out really well. I love being a missionary.
Since this is my last P-day here and we won't be able to play basketball every morning at 5 from now on so we're going to ball all day today. I'm excited.
I listed to that one talk from the son of Elder Holland again today about Pain. I've probably listened to it like 5 times. I love it so much. It honestly is so interesting. Not only the view of God throughout time, especially in early Protestantism and whatnot. But pain is such an interesting thing. I still haven't really figured it out but the paradox of pain and love is beyond interesting to me.
Also, I love you. Thank you for all that you do for me. I am so so so appreciative. I lucked out in the parental department. I love you.
-- your boy. xoxoxoxo
