Elder Jackson york Nielsen
New Jersey Morristown mission
It is me! Your boy! @me! I'm just tranquilizándome here in my Roselle apartment, in which I am staying for another 6 weeks! I'm so excited. And I stay with Elder Hunt too and he is the literal second funniest person on earth aside from my funny mom.
So I'm staying here in Elizabeth. Very happy about that. I even stay as a zone leader too, which I am also really happy about. I don't really know how to be anything else at this point because I'll be going on almost 8 months of doing so by the end of this next one. Elder Harding is coming to my zone!!! I love that guy. Sister Freestone and Sister Hannafin are training new missionaries which is also super fun. Two fresh new faces in Elizabeth. My good friend Elder Feick was just called to be AP which is so fun. Elder Feick is from Kaysville. Love that guy. But anyway. It'll be a nice new transfer. I'm really looking forward to it. I have 6 transfers left, which doesn't seem like much at all. I can't wait to tell you about all the weird food I've eaten and the weird things I've seen. New Jersey is something else, that's for sure. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Seminary has officially started and it's so fun. We go basically every day now because we have this 16 year old investigator that goes and it's nice to be supported. She also knows more about the BoM than any other student there because they're all hardcore punks. But they're good punks. Sister Ortiz teaches it and her and her husband are the funniest. They invited us over to their house at 12 so we could help them set up something and they want to make us lunch and let us do our laundry there so that's nice. There are the nicest members here. Just the best people. I've also gained a whole new respect for seminary. I'm basically taking it all over again and have realized that I should have paid more attention the first time. I also just loved my senior year Seminary teacher. He was just the best. I have a newfound respect for CES. Because teaching stubborn kids is hard.
That scripture you sent from D & C 121 is one of my favorites. It was actually our monthly scripture last month and we memorized it. Good chapter. D&C is full of the coolest stuff. All scripture is full of the coolest stuff. Basically scripture is just cool stuff. I like how you can learn about a civilization through it's scripture. Idk. God is just very good.
In other news, this week we were taken out to a Chinese restaurant and when we were leaving we got fortune cookies and everyone's was very inspirational and mine said, "Oops, Wrong Cookie." and I am still wounded.
Also I the children's version of the scriptures are the best thing to ever happen. They're so funny. Pictures attached.
Ok I have to go but I'll email you more later. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!! XOXOXOXOX!
Elder Nielsen has been admiring the artwork in the children's scriptures. Here's a few he sent. Funny boy.
