Dec 14 and 21

Dec 21

I'm not sure what time I will get to call sometime after 3, I know that. Most likely not long after that. I sent you all a package too, except don't open it till Christmas. So you will all be at the hospital again? I thought we were done with that. Just when we thought it was going to be okay.
So its just some infection that wrecking havoc on Kim because she has no defense against it? Stupid, everything was going so well.
We had our zone conference this past week, we talked a lot about the Book of Mormon and sang lots of Christmas songs. They gave us a Book of Mormon to read and to mark all the places where Christ is talked about all the names of Christ and everything he says in red. Which makes reading the BOM fun it turns in it to a game almost. So far I have found over 500.
I went caroling last night with some of the ward members; it was lots of fun and it was in the 40s so it was close to what it should be. We went to a bunch of houses and sang bunches of Christmas songs. The people were happy to see us as well.
I love you all so much. Everything was going so well- I hope Kim will be recovering by Christmas- that will be the Best gift. I hope I can call on your cell phone so we can use the speaker- that will be much better. That and I wont have to work through the hospital again. Last time was a pain trying to get through to you.
I love you all, I hope you will have a Merry Christmas

Love, Elder Nelson

Dec 14

This week went pretty well- we went on lots of exchanges. We had our zone p-day, ate lots of junk food and had fun. We had a district meeting the next day we talked a lot about planning and then practiced our tracting skills running around the gym contacting one another and teaching each other. Sister Freeman went a little nuts while contacting. It looked like she was going to eat poor Elder Moon while she tried to get a "new gater". You would have to see a picture of her to understand why Elder Moon about died.
After the meeting I went on an exchange with Elder Lussier in my area, we tracted and had a good member exchange later that night. Elder Lussier was very excited to be right on the beach pretty much. He about wet him self out of excitation. He is from Mesa Az.
The next day I went on a exchange with the APs, we found a few new gaters one of which might be positive. It rained on and off that day and we got pretty wet. We had to hurry and get to our apt, dry off and eat- then went out on another member exchange to teach Sam, one of our gaters. The lesson went very well we set a baptismal date with him for this coming month.
Sunday was pretty busy as usual- we went over to the church at 6 then had our meetings like normal. President and Sister Darrington came to our church meetings, which was awesome. They tore the members up for referrals and we got about 20 people we can now follow up with- sweet! They need to come more often now. Right after church we had a baptism. Emily Wohlhueter. Because it was right after church we had a ton of people show up. They had lots of support. She asked me to baptize her, which I was happy to do. Later that night they brought us a Christmas tree, which we now have up.
All in all it was a good week. I hope Kim recovers, I cant believe she got this everything was going so well... oh man not good.
Well I hope good things happen this week.
Elder Nelson
