Hi everyone,

Things are going great. I am just getting over a nasty cold. Not a lot of updates from me other than we are still super busy.

I love being a missionary, baptizing people, and crying repentance to others. I never thought I would love being a missionary like this.... but I do! I wouldn't have it any other way!!

Love you all,
Elder Dane Nielsen

Elder Fonnesbeck

Hi Family,

It has been a while. I have been super busy!!! You know the life of a missionary.

I got a new companion this week his name is Elder Fonnesbeck. He is so great!!! The President called me on Wednesday and told me I was being assigned with Elder Fonnesbeck who had been serving as an assistant to the President. Elder Fonnesbeck was the first person I met and went out with on splits when I arrived in SC.

It is so much fun. I have never had so much fun as being a missionary. What a great life!!!

Love you all,
Elder Dane Nielsen

Never drive in wet cement

It was a great week...we had two baptisms.  We baptized a mother and her daughter.  It was
such a great experience.

The car wheel in the cement was a long story! I was trying to cross a "small river" ha ha ha
(the small river part is an inside joke).  The workers said, "Oh it should be fine to go thru,
it should be dry".  So I was like "WOW" I don't know much about cement, but that looks
really wet.  So I tried it with one tire and sank to the frame.  Ha ha, luckily I have had some
"experience" with getting high centered with Grandpa, so I was able to back out.  It was so

It really was a great week.  I love it here and love the work.  I am really looking forward to
this week because we have two appointments set up with two great Stake Presidents to help
the work move along in this area.

I love you all!!!
