April 14, 2014

I hate the freakin IRS why do I have to pay I only worked a half a freakin year??  That's really a kick straight to the bum! (Had to change that word!) haha. (Haha!  He thought that he was going to get a big refund!)

Well this week was a good one!   We got a referral, who is now a New Investigator, who is wanting to be baptized.  Her name is Karen Sheckard.  She has alot of LDS family.  Her Brother converted when he married an LDS girl and so did her son.  Her parents converted 2 years ago and were sealed a year ago.  Her dad passed away though about 4 weeks ago, so she got to dress him for burial.  So that's pretty cool!  What investigator is ever gonna be able to do that?  We met her Thursday and  have another appointment scheduled Thursday.  She has a nephew on a mission she told him before he left but then on Thursday she said she is gonna email him and ask if its alright if she gets baptized before he gets home so it pretty exciting!

Elvis is still doing good!  His family still isn't letting him be baptized or come to church though.  So he is still doing what he can.  We were on exchanges with the Zone Leaders on Saturday and we had an OYM challenge (OYM means open your mouth basically talk to someone you haven't met about the gospel, like tracting or street contacting)  Ofcourse me and the zone leader that was with me won!  :) 

So what project were they doing up at Luna?  Why are you yelling at me about not telling you about Pres. Greer getting into the 70 you guys should have been watching it! :)  But yeah I forgot to tell you about that.  No he hasn't emailed me yet, you told me he was going to like 2 months ago too.  So idk why he hasn't yet.

Was Rio 2 good?  So thats her new movie huh?  Did Kyle take her out to the lake or did they just sit in the boat?  (Maddie found her life jacket this morning and decided she was going on the boat and going fishing.  She kept signing it to us.  So of course Kyle told her they were going to the Lake to go fishing.  Needless to say she went to school with her swim suit on under her clothes but not before she had put her life jacket on over the clothes and her swim coverup on over that.  I had to send the bus on to school without her because she wasn't getting on until she had at least sat in the boat!  Silly, stubborn child of mine! Love her!)  How did your interviews go? (No luck - still looking for a job!)
Um send the package to the Mission because transfers are next week.  I thought his watch was in the safe I think in a shoe box.  Did you find my watch to send to me though?  And did you get P90x in there?

 Thank you for all you do!

Oceanfront Property in Arizona

April 7, 2014

So first off!  Why didn't anyone tell me that George Strait handed down the crown to Luke Bryan??  I know I'm not supposed to be of the world right now, but that is something important enough for me to know haha.  Conference was sikk huh?  Elder Holland droppin bombs telling it how it is!  I have come to love that man!   He use to scare me haha.  The Saturday morning was the best session and the priesthood session. 

Chaylee isn't getting transfered to a Hollister in Utah?  What has she been  up to?  So are you happy to get rid of her?  Ha jk your running out of your girls! 

I got that picture from Jacque, I have gotten so fat since she left on her mission ha.  But it's coming back off.  Slowly but surely.

Maddie always has the time of her life up at the Ranch, she gets to do whatever the heck she wants!  

 I will keep my fingers crossed for your job interview. 

This week was a good week.  We had dinner with a part member family that we have been kinda teaching.  It's mainly been just answering the husbands questions, who is the non member.  But he told us that he has actually been reading the Book of Mormon, even though he's been telling us that he hasn't been.  And that he is seriously considering Baptism.  He didn't want to tell us because he didn't want to be pushed and wanted it to be his own choice.  Remind you of someone??  (YES!!  This is how Bubba was about his Mission!  He wasn't going to go for anyone but himself.  When he felt the need and desire to go he'd go! - Which is how it should be.  What a great Missionary he is!)  But he now knows that he needs to be baptized, for himself and he doesn't care what his parents think.  He started thinking about it when he found out about baby blessings and father blessings and he wants to be the one to bless his kids.

We also got a Refferal last night.  A lady who just moved into our Ward she was taught a little before she moved and contacted the Bishop and said she wanted us to start teaching her.  The RS President and other Ward members helped her move in yesterday.  She kept telling them how excited she is to meet us and to keep learning.  She kept telling them to tell us and to  make sure that we call her.  She gave us some Applebee's gift cards and some Subway gift cards, so I like her already -  haha! :)

 Then it was Conference week, so it was already ment to be a good week and the Temple Wednesday, so it was an awesome week.  I like Conference a whole lot more out here.  Probably because I pay attention and take notes out here.  But the Prophet and Apostles and other leaders are so filled with the Spirit and know what each of us need to hear.  I got the most out of this Conference than ever before! 

Thanks for all you guys do for me! 

Elder Bubba Nelson 

P.S. - He sent some pictures.  I've been having computer issues so I'll try to send them on!  Thanks for you love, prayers and support!

Oh the people in the "48br0"  
I just got outta the Temple too.   It was pretty good!   Except I almost pee'd my pants I drank too much right before.   So the lesson I learned don't drink too much right before the Temple,  haha.   Yes, I can't wait for General Conference!  I'm super excited its gonna be a good one!  Take some pics of the fam at the ranch please! 

 Well this week was a slower week but it was still a good week.  I can't even really remember what happened since they changed our P-Day to today.  But I still have been doing that 80  day Book of Mormon challenge and came across an awesome verse, it's 2 Nephi 22:2.  All of you should read it!

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation.   

Sorry this email is so short idk what else to say.

Love you all thank you for all the support you give me!
