Crazy Days

Hey! Things are crazy right now. We just found out our transfers and my companion is leaving. I will probably be crying for days, or months. But we don´t have time for that hahaha.

My new companion will be Hermana Rojas from Argentina! She´s way cute and has about a year in the mission! I am really excited, we are going to have a ton of fun!

Also, Hermana Sweat and Hna Sosa are both leaving the area and we are getting two new Hermanas here so I am way excited!!!

We are in the first week now of my last transfer and I am peeing my skirt. It´s blazing hot and there´s a ton of work to do and I am really excited! We´re just praying for our investigators to go to church so if you guys could pray for that too, that would be AWESOME!

Have a great week! Thanks for all the love and support.

16 meses HOY

Hey friends! I´m sorry....the more time I have in the mission the less I feel like writing jajaja I´ll just fill you all in on the details when I get home jaja.

This week has been good though! The heat has come back and it´s awful! But it´s kinda fun being sweaty all day even if you are just sitting and not doing anything, because you look like you´ve actually been doing a lot in the day jaja.

We´ve just been trying to help a lot of hermanas and strengthen our ward. And leave our area really strong this last week of the transfer. Yeah, today we start week 6 which means that I will be starting my last transfer next week....aggghhhhh. It´s all good though.

We just made a calendar of all the things we will be doing for the last 6 weeks with our area, hermanas, and the mission and we literally have something every day so there´s no time for boredom!

We are looking a ton for people that will accept the gospel, we´ve found some miracles but they have a lot of doubts so we´re just doing our best to help them be in an environment where the spirit can testify to them of the restored gospel. It´s the funnest thing I´ve ever done in my life! Hardest and most stressful but by far the funnest! 

Sorry idk what else to write, we´re doing good here and we´re happy so I guess we´ll see ya next week jaja

Love, Hermana Nielsen

I don´t even remember what I did this week just general conference because it was sooooooogooooooooood.

We went to our stake center like 15 minutes away (in taxi jajaja) and watched all of it! Both days. They had it in English again in another room so Hna Sweat and I  watched it with a bunch of elders because it´s wayyyyy better when you can hear their voices instead of a voice over.

Every talk helped me a ton but I loved Elder Renlund´s talk. The best for last. It really touched me. And all the talks about knowing the doctrine of the gospel. My whole testimony on faith, repentance, baptism/sacrament, Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end has been strengthened so much. I don´t even know how to talk about them in English anymore but they are my favorite things.

We as members have to know the doctrine of the church not just to teach and share it with other people but to be able to understand and apply it to our own lives. The basic doctrines and principles are what will save us!

Being a missionary is the best thing ever because the more I study and share these things with other people, the more I understand. I didn´t think the mission was going to be as personal as it has been for me. I thought it was going to be all about other people and helping them, and it has been. But I have changed and grown so much. The Lord has put me with people and in situations that have stretched me and helped me to grow and while focusing on other people I have been able to change.

I was thinking a lot about conference last night and the impact it has had on me thus far and Heavenly Father has shown me how much I have grown and what the gospel has been able to do for ME. I´m really humbled a grateful.

I feel like another big theme was Joy and that if we are going through hard things, it´s okay. With Jesus Christ we are able to have joy even in the hardest times and that is so incredible. I love Conference so much. I´m so pupmed to download it all today. Have a great week!

Ponderize: Just go watch your fav conference talk again.

LOVE, Hermana Nielsen
