I am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the South Carolina Columbia Mission from 11-17-2010 to 11-17-2012.
This blog will follow me on my mission in South Carolina. Check back often to follow the account of my activities through letters, photos, and comments from family and friends.
This first picture is of the other missionaries in my district. The second one is of me and my new companion, we got a cake for one of our investigators for his birthday. We are covering Grovetown, GA and also the Fort Gordon military base where we get to teach the soliders. It is a lot of fun and we are having a lot of success. I love my mission and am glad that I'm "right in the middle" as Elder Utchdorf said in his recent talk. I still have a long time before I return home and have truly cherished the short time I have been out. I look forward to pushing hard the last two months. I love you all and appreciate everything you do for me and for your service in the church. Do your home teaching and never lose the faith.
Not a lot from Elder Nielsen this week with Monday being a holiday. We did learn he was transferred to Grovetown, GA and is serving with an Elder from Idaho. His new companion is originally from Haiti and is one of 16 children adopted by this family. They had 7 children and have adopted 16. Wow! He loves his new companion and is excited to work in the new area.
