Janely & Nicaraguan Chinese Takeout

May 26, 2014

Dear Family :)

Hey you GUYS! Ahhh Skyping you guys on Mothers Day was the best thing EVER! It was SO good to see all of your faces and bask in your awesomeness again. I love you guys so much. You don't even KNOW :)

Can you BELIEVE I'm almost DONE? I cant BELIEVE I'm gonna be home in two and a half months. It didn't feel like it had been that long until I saw Joseph and how he's turned into a little MAN. It was the CRAZIEST thing to see every ones little changes, but you're all still as awesome as ever. I couldn't be more happy about that :)

Over here... We had a BAPTISM on Saturday! Oh my GOSH! Haha you guys it was the BEST! Baptism numero 16 was to the GORGEOUS Janely Mena :) 

Teaching her was just an honor :')  We could really feel how much the Lord loved her which was SUCH a cool experience. I know the Lord doesn't have favorites or anything, but she's really, really special to Him. After she passed her baptismal interview, she was so excited she started crying! She hugged us for a really long time without letting go. After she came out of the water when she got baptized she was BEAMING. We've been beaming ever since too :) The Gospel makes her SO happy and I think that's what has been the best part of all of this. The fact that we were able to be a little part of what made/makes somebody so happy. It makes ALL of this SO worth it. 

After the baptism we had to stay after everyone had left to clean up all the water and stuff. When we left it was really dark and it was hard to find a taxi, but we bought Nicaraguan Chinese takeout (sounds sketchy, I know) but it was SO delicious and we enjoyed the rest of the evening eating that :) It was so awesome, haha.

I just want you all to know that I know this church is true, and the only way to be truly happy in this life is by being apart of it. I'm so glad that YOU'RE all apart of it, and that we can be happy together as a family forever :') 

I love you guys SO much. Thank you so much for taking care of me all of this time with your prayers and your love. Have a WONDERFUL week and I'll talk to you all again soon :)

Love,

Hermana Nielson
