This is super weird, most likely my last email home...the past week has been really weird. I decided I needed to bear my testimony since it was the last fast Sunday of my mission. I made it through fine, but as I walked back to my seat I suddenly flashed back to before my mission, I couldn't hold back the tears...(embarrassing by the way). It all hit me at once what all my mission has meant to me. I thought back to the day that we were getting ready for me to go back to school, when I realized that I wasn't meant to go, but that I needed to be on a mission. I don't remember any time in my life up to that point where I had acted on a spiritual prompting, but I am so glad that I did.
I don't know where I would be without my mission, but words can't describe what I have learned and come to know. I am so grateful that even though I had completely decided not to serve, that Heavenly Father never gave up on me. I am grateful for all of your prayers on my behalf.
So this week is going to be pretty crazy. We have to do zone meeting tomorrow as well as a meeting with the Stake President. Saturday is supposed to be a p day for me, but it doesn't sound like i will really be taking one. We have a baptism that morning, and then I am going with one of the AP's up to Blytheville, for a baptism of a lady I taught way back when. If I get a chance I will send you an email from Blytheville. Keep Lenora in your prayers, she is our baptism this week, and she is going to need them.
I love y'all!!!
Can't wait to see ya in a week...
Love Elder Nelson
