First come, first serve

Transfers are this week and Dane will be staying in Simpsonville with his same companion.  I wish I could send those poor boys another Lazy-boy .

That is me and Elder Muhlstien, he lives in our apartment with us.  We have the same tie so we thought it would be a cool picture.  Priesdent Holm also has the same tie.  (Who wouldn't want to look like President Holm).  I got some new running shoes this week because my others are worn out.  I'm sitting in the lazy boy reading about the prophets, apostles, and quorum of the seventy.  Things are great here.  I love being a missionary.   Our Zone has been working really hard and having a lot of success.

Yes, the chair is first come, first serve!!!!

Love Elder Dane Nielsen

This week Dane told me that he read D & C 60:13 .... "Behold, they have been sent to preach my gospel among the congregrations of the wicked; wherefore,  I give unto them a commandment, thus:  Thou shalt not idle away thy time, neither shalt thou bury thy talent that it may not be known."

He said,"This scripture is way cool!  It made me recommit for the last 4 months of my mission I am throwing it all on the table".

Last week we received an email from him expressing how he does not want to come home.  He loves being a missionary and is very scared to come home.  We realize this is a normal feeling for every young missionary.  I know this next 4 months will fly by, but as a mother I am looking forward to seeing my son, holding him in my arms, looking into his eyes and seeing the young man Heavenly Father is sending me.  We know his spirit will fill our home and he will have the light of Christ in his eyes.  What an awesome time to be a missionary.  He is on fire and we are so proud of him.

I really think he has no time for pictures so on his way to the library to email us he pulled over and took a picture of himself with a cow.......we know he loves farm animals, but a COW!!!
