Hello World from the sweet land of Boulder City, tucked away in the mountains!
What a beautiful place this is as you can see from all the pictures I got this week!
I am so happy here everyone, it reminds me of home so much aside from the mountains. There are all these nicknack and trinket shops and it has an old feel like downtown Columbus that I love so much, everyone says hi and lots of people know everyone. It's just a happy place! I have to come back here after my mission.
The missionary work here is really neat, there are lots of people ready for the gospel and I'm so glad to be serving the Lord here. The work is the same wherever you go, we just get the rich experience of leaving a piece of our heart in several places all over the world with people we come to know and love! I have already made wonderful friendships here that I will treasure forever, everywhere you go is quirky and special!
So my thought for this week is to do something that will bring a smile to someone's face. Help them feel the love that the Savior has for them through you. It's a much richer experience when you share it with others! I love life, I love God and Christ and I love this gospel that I am honored to share with others, I wouldn't trade it for the world!
So much love,
Sister Alayna Nelson
