Through fasting and prayer we can receive peace and understanding.

Dear friends and family,

This week has been a slow one. We had the dodge call (transfer call) on Monday, February 2, 2015, night and Elder Jones and I are staying together for one more transfer.  It is nice because both of us didn't want to leave Derby.  Other than that Elder Jones is starting to get sick again with that same nasty cold and on top of that, all of our investigators are sick as well.  It seems like a cycle that just never stops.  Elder Jones gets better and they get sick.  They get better and Jones get sick.  We did pick up a new investigator this week but other than that it is slowing down.  I have a feeling that we are going to have to drop some people because they will not meet with us anymore.  

The tender mercy for the week was in Sacrament Meeting during the sacrament.  I had prayed and fasted for some help and I got this feeling of peace come over me and a voice that said you are doing your best and everything will be okay.  It was a nice thing to have and calmed my troubled heart.

There are lots of people in this Ward that I like.  And lots of families as well.  Everyone here in Derby love the Missionaries and we are always having fun with them.  

Mostly this week has just been a reset week for us.  Getting things ready for this transfer.  Cleaning up our books and finding the people who have fallen through the cracks.

But pretty boring week for Elder Jones and I.  Please keep praying for hearts to be softened in England.

I testify that the we can all receive personal revelation for ourselves and feel of the Spirit bear witness to us of peace when we are facing trials.

Have a great week!  Love you all!

Elder Nielsen
