Elder Jackson york Nielsen
New Jersey Morristown mission
Jack had a really short email home last week. His p-day was moved to Wednesday so he could go to the NYC temple. He also apparently cracked his tooth on some "delicious Mexican chips" about a year ago and didn't do anything about it until this week. Luckily we caught it before he needed a root canal. Silly boy. Anyway, here's a little bit of his letter home;
Hiiii mom! It's me! Your busy boy! Man I have been running around literally all day. But it's been super fun! We went to the temple with Ibette and Yomairy and Ibette's brother who is going on a mission soon and it was just really nice. Other than the fact that it took me 1 and a half hours to drive like 21 miles to Jersey City where we took the subway (I am the king of the NY Subway) and then anyway basically it took the entire day and I'm tired!!!!
This week was as really good! We had some really cool miracle lessons. This area is undoubtedly pretty hard but President told me that it needs to be loved and taken care of because it hasn't been for a long time and that's why he sent me here. It's fun though. I love it here. I want you to know I'm a happy boy and I'm healthy and also sorry about my tooth. haha. I'm literally so dumb that's why I need a smart mom like you. Tomorrow I have a dentist appointment at 10:30am where I have to get a temporary crown and I'm excited. 😑
My Thanksgiving was so cute!! I loved it. I am literally a turkey. My companion gained 5 pounds in 2 days. Lol. SO MUCH FOOD. Please promise me when I get home I'll only have to eat as much as I want and no one will get offended if I don't lick my plate clean. But it was really nice and we spent it with the kindest people. I love the people here. They're so so so nice.
I'm sorry this is short but I'll talk to you in a few days and I'll write you a GIANT email. So it'll be ok. Just know I'm happy and healthy and the only thing you need to get me for Christmas is a new tooth and a Facetime call. I love you. SO SO MUCH.
