Elder Jackson york Nielsen
New Jersey Morristown mission
Another week come and gone for Elder Nielsen. He had a busy P-day so the news was a little thin, but he's a happy guy and that's how we like it. Here is a little excerpt from his letter home;
Email days are my favorite days because I get to talk to my family. Everything is so good with me! I'm really happy. Right now I'm with Elder Justice because we had an exchange yesterday and now we're just hanging out and having a fun time. I love Elder Justice. He and I talked late into the night and it was funny and now I'm tired.
My life is so nice. We had a lot of really nice lessons this week and we were able to meet a lot of really nice people. I love the people here! Hispanics are so nice. I love them. And everyone is really nice if you treat them kindly. Kind of an eternal principle.
I can't believe that the patriots came back from such a deficit. I wish I could have watched it with you guys. But everything of valuable significance requires sacrifice. Truthfully, I didn't even know that the Super Bowl was yesterday. I'm so uninvolved. I also think it's such a huge blessing that I'm uninvolved in the news because I would lose my mind and hair.
My apartment is wonderful and I sleep so well every night. I do this thing where I stick my head basically out the window when I fall asleep and it kind of feels like alone time and that I'm sleeping outside. I don't eat meat unless people give it to me for meals and I feel super good all the time because of it. I eat a lot of fruits and veggies and basically I'm the epitome of health.
Elder Harding is the best. He's still really shy and very scared but he and I are really good friends. He's a cute guy. I went on an exchange with Elder Oakley, this funny british guy, this week because I'm his district leader. He goes home in the next transfer and he's very ready. But we had a good day but it just made me realize how glad I am to be in the Spanish program because we just talked to a ton of racist old white people all day and it was gross. My soul is Hispanic.
My week was really good. We worked really hard and found a lot of new investigators to teach. Lots of walking. I had to go to the doctor this week for a few minutes because I had a mean ingrown toenail that he took out. But now it's healed and I don't have any pain which is good because we walk like 8-10 miles a day.
I love my area. We get a lot of investigators to come to church which is pretty cool. I love the people so much. I hope I stay here for a long time.
Hope all is well and you know how much I love all of you!
