Hey! Feb. 24, 2014


I have been transferred out of the office to the Boise North
Stake. I will be covering the Mitchel Ward.

I am so grateful for getting out of the office, I am excited for the
new change:)

I will keep Isaac in my prayers and also everyone else in the family.
I am excited because the family I moved in with has a piano and a
organ so I can practice all the time now! It looks like I will finish
my mission in this area as a District Leader.

These last two transfers have come to quickly and too fast for me. I am
excited about all the things I have learned and how I will get to use
them in my own area before I leave.

Thanks for the letters and all that you do for me. I am so thankful for
all the vitamins and green drink that you have supported me with my
whole mission! You have no idea how grateful I have been for the
support of both you and Dad! I hope you know that I love you:)

Just got a little bit longer and I will make sure to finish strong.

-Love Elder Samuel Nelson

Hey, so everything is going just fine out here. I am looking forward
to the up coming transfer!

We are having zone conference this week so we will be pretty busy with

I am just doing all I can to stay focused on my mission. It all seems
to close and to real for this time to end.
I am so sad to hear the news of Aunt Michele! That is so sad, I will
pray for the family and keep them in my prayers!

I have seen many miracles in the area, and we have now gotten involved
with the institute so we will be teaching classes and challenging the
students to talk to their friends. That is pretty exciting to hear:)

I got to speak with our stake president who made a really good point
to me and ended by quoting Saint Francis, " Preach the Gospel and if
necessary use words." Much more then speaking is doing, I may not be
able to convince many people of the message of the restoration but I
can live the gospel and from my life choices people will witness the
happiness that the gospel brings into my life.

We also got to sit with our Bishop and his wife for dinner. they are
both very healthy people that own a gym. Our conversation around the
dinner table didn't vary from the Word of Wisdom. Bishop then took
some time to explain the importance of planning ahead! He said if you
want to be financially independent you need to take 10% of your
earnings and start saving it, plan today and stay out of debt! I had a
wonderful time speaking with them. He is a good Bishop and one that I
enjoy working with.

I love you and hope all is well.

Love Elder Nelson

Hey! Feb., 3, 2014

So this week we have the Director of Proselyting coming to our mission
and he will be spending tomorrow with us. That will be exciting to
have him out with us!

We have had a great week!

So we have a list of people that no one in the ward has met.... So we
said we would go and make contact with a few of them, I called a guy
named Wes Snyder he lives on the campus and is a recent convert of 3
yrs, he said he would feed us and would love to have us come over so
we scheduled a time. We go meet with him and have dinner together,
throughout the whole time we are there he keeps looking at me and then
said "I know you Elder Nelson." I thought to myself I have talked to
so many people here on campus, I probably just talked to him a few
weeks ago no big deal! ...... As we were about to leave the house it
started to bothered me that I didn't recognize him, so I started
asking him questions. He started opening up and said that he use to be
married to a girl named Mari and that he has a little girl with
her.... After he had mentioned this I knew who I was talking to! Wes
and Mari were in my first area and we were teaching Mari his wife for
the first two weeks I was there then they moved. It was a sad reunion
to see what had happened to a once beautiful couple and family. We
exchanged information and he told me that he would love for us to come
by and see him sometime and to keep in touch. I was so glad that we
were able to find him and have such a good visit.

Mom for the next 3 months I would just like to try supplements from
nikken that I haven't yet had:) Whatever you think would be of benefit
to me... I have plenty of Green Drink, and thats about it. You could
suprise me with whatever and I will be happy. Also you know the nikken
mini that I have around my neck? Well the cover that goes over it has
just worn out.... Would I get one of those covers so I can where the

Here are some pictures and I will try to send some more this next
week. Hope you enjoy them.

I love you and thank you so much for all that you do for me!! Say hi to Lana and Emma for me. Talk to you soon!
