Elder Jackson york Nielsen
New Jersey Morristown mission
Hiiii. It's me. Hello. We just had a nice zone activity which was actually really stressful because trying to get young people to focus on something for more than 30 seconds has proven to be harder than most things. Lol. After this transfer I'll have almost 8 months being a zone leader which is SO MUCH. Good thing I like it. Also, did I tell you Elder Harding is in my zone again? I LOVE THAT GUY! Same with Sister Spackman. Fun stuff. We just got back and are very tired. As soon as I finish this email to you I'm going to literally nap so hard someone is going to take me to the hospital because they'll assume I'm dead.
This week we had a ton of really cool miracles. People just showing up to church, members having nonmember family that they want us to teach etc. We keep ourselves busy, that's for sure.
So fun that Jason and Connor got home. Apparently we actually go home eventually. They are nice guys and I'm sure their missions were really good for them. Missions are good for everyone. The Gospel is good at making bad people good and good people better. I've seen it redeem a lot of people who thought they were irredeemable. It's my favorite part. We are baptizing this really nice girl next month who has just changed 100% from who she used to be. I believe in what I'm doing too.
For a day this past week we had Elder Arocho with us, who served in SLC! He just finished his mission, but lives in Puerto Rico, and he was stuck here because of the hurricane. It was fun to be in a trio but also weird. Not used to it. But he was a super fun guy and I found out that as a Missionary in Utah you can't drink caffeine. Like what. I would literally die. Literally. Mormons are nuts. I'm glad to be one of them.
BTW, the church came out with a religious freedom section in the Gospel library. Definitely worth the read.
Anyway. That's my week. I'm really tired so I'm going to catch some zzzzs. I love you more than words can say.
