Happy April!

Hello everyone happy April. The time for me is so weird and flying by actually really fast. I am super jealous of you guys getting to go to the new Provo temple! It looks so beautiful. I cant wait to be able to go there one day. Also mom I think I caught a glimpse of a selfie stick that you had and I have to admit I had a moment where I was super proud of you but also dont think I will be able to be seen in public with you if you have it. sorry not sorry..... hahah just kidding. I loved the pictures. And, question.. is that the El Salvador restaurant right south of BYU?! Is it closed?! NOooo we had so many plans to go meet up there with people from the mission. I hope its not actually closed. Anyways this week seemed to fly by despite being a kind of hard one. It was just one of those weeks with a lot of problems and I felt so emotional and physically drained. it was really hard to keep pushing on at some times. But like every problem, it all passes eventually. I had a good fast this week that really helped me get strength. Our investigator Eliseo was super positive but we learned there might be complications with the law and things with the law in this country aren't the easiest to deal with. So right now we are waiting on answers from Presidente and we may have to postpone his baptism but we are hoping for the best. 

Also country problems.. the government cut all the cell towers down close to the prisons because they were having trouble with the communication with people inside the prision. The thing is we have 6 missionaries in a city an hour from us that have a giant prision in the middle of the city and we lost all contact with them. So that was a fun time with a lot of sleepless nights trying to get verifications every night to see if they are all okay. Many times we had to go down and search the city for them. But we did get communication established a couple day ago so things are getting back to nowmal on that. Also we had a zone conference this week that I feel like went alright. OH and I got your package mom! Thanks for the candy and Nutella and PB.  You are the best. 

Anyways this week we have a temple trip on wednesday which is AWESOME. My first time going to the temple for a long time. We have an early session so we are going to have to get up at three to get out there in time but Its worth is. I love the temple and crave the spirit that is felt there. It is such a holy place and I am in need of the spiritual revival it gives me and the chance to really ponder and talk with the Lord. I love all you guys and thank you for everything! TILL NEXT WEEK.

  1. Hello Elder Nelson. I love that you crave going to the temple. I agree! The Spirit in the temple is unique and very fulfilling. I'm glad you got to go to the temple there. I was so happy to be able to go to the Provo City temple with your Mom and all our sisters and Grandma . It was wonderful! Much love and prayers!
