March 17, 2014

We had a wonderful experience here in the ward.  We found a new family from Africa and we will be teaching them this week. It was a
really humbling experience because they were refugees that got split up from their  family and the 16 yr old boy opened up to us and said, 
"It was really hard for me over there." and you could see that he had been through a lot. I will keep you updated on the progress of them.

We had a youth fireside yesterday and me, being the oldest missionary at the meeting, I got to speak last and share some experience that have happened over the last 2 years. I am happy to say that I had everyone laughing and made it a good experience!  Afterward we sang the song "Will Bring the World His Truth." It was really powerful.

We have been working a lot with the young men in our ward and have been staying really busy with service in the area.  As you saw Arnold
Hagmann had us working on his back yard. We have been working with the less-active daughter and his grandson, who is coming back to church.

I am so grateful for my mission and the many things that I have been able to do. I am in awe with how much growth and strength I have obtained during my mission.

Thanks for all that you do!

It is just getting warm here so I am starting to enjoy my bike rides everyday:) Have a wonderful week.

Love Elder Nelson
