January 27, 2014

Yesterday in church the speakers ended 5 minutes early and the bishop said Elder Nielsen would you mind coming up and sharing a few thoughts with us.  I was freaking out.  When I got up there my mind went blank so I talked a little about being a new missionary and bore my testimony.   The congregation was laughing and the Bishop said wow you are a funny guy Elder Nielsen.  It was crazy but I'm fine.

We had an investigator invite us over for dinner on Thursday.  The guy is in his 60's and it was super nice that he invited us over.  I was excited because I got to use my Canadian drivers license for the first time.  I drove around with Elder Sly, he is one of our zone leaders.  It was fun to drive again.  Anthony one of our investigators is getting baptized February 1st.  We are super excited.  That will my first baptism!!

I got to play basketball with a bunch of missionaries last P-day at the church.  It was fun and the first time I've done that since I've been in Canada.  I miss playing basketball.  

Elder Van Fleet and I are both out of money on our mission cards so we have been eating eggs (which a member brings us everyday) and Macaroni and Cheese every meal.  I have to say I'm kind of sick of both.  I can't wait for February 1st so we can have something decent to eat again.

I'm getting a new camera today because the old one doesn't work.  Then I can start sending some pictures along with my weekly e-mail.  Although the haircut I got from Elder Van Fleet a few weeks ago is so bad I'm not sure I want to show it off.

Have a great week everyone.  I love you all.
