Oh yeah that was a really good visit with the Nielsens! They are such nice people! It was really sweet to talk and be able to know the same people from Elwood and where different places are. It felt like a little taste of home ha! They were great though and so nice for doing that!
Our weather has flip flopped and it's back into the mid 80s down here and feels just about like summer again. It's throwing me off seeing the Halloween decorations coming out, it doesn't feel like fall yet here.
We have had a pretty good week down here in Lancaster. Nothing too new happened in the work. We are still just out trying to find and help people. Hopefully soon we will find some solid people. I did find out Dustin the one who we were teaching and that moved to college got baptized yesterday! We saw him on Friday and got to talk about temple and the covenants. He did seem more confident and happy! It was great to see him! We are so happy for him!
We also had interviews with the Alexander's again which is always really amazing! I'll just have one last interview with him talking about all my plans. Anyways it was really good. It was actually pretty funny so I haven't mentioned Mikayla to him, it just hasn't ever came up. Well in the interview we were taking and I mentioned something about there was someone who really helped a lot to be out here. And he asked who it was? So I said well I haven't told you this yet but it's a girl... he started to get a big grin on his face and I told him all about her, and he was beaming ha. He was like "Elder you stinker I hadno idea ha"! And he asked me about her and he was just happy for me, and then asked at the end well do you have any more secrets for me? It was great though and we had just a really good visit. He said we will talk more about that stuff in the exit interview. He has a way to motivate the missionaries, I look up to him a lot!
All in all things are going really well and I'm excited for these next few weeks! I am extra excited for conference! I look forward to that more than just about anything on the mission. It is a big spiritual boost! I hope your week is great! Elder Cannon
P.S. We had low country boil again at the Tracy's. It's amazing! Sorry I look so rough. I wasn't feeling too well yesterday. Also, everyone thought it was funny in the difference in our shirts since I'm at the end of my mission and Elder Samuelson is at the beginning of his.
