Feeling at home in Siem Reap. (from November)

Hello family,

I'm starting to feel a lot more comfortable with the country and everything that goes on here. My bike breaks literally everyday so I am always at the bike repair shop. I'm getting to know those guys really well.

We are seeing a lot more success in our area. We're starting to click more as a companionship and our lessons are getting a lot better.

So first I just want to thank you guys for the package. You really do know exactly what I need. Man, I'm really excited to make a peanut butter sandwich tonight. 

In this area, there is a night and day difference from a few weeks ago. Its been a lot of hard work and pure grit, but we're starting to see some great things happening here. It seems wild to think my time in Siem Reap will likely be drawing to a close in 2 weeks. But we're just going to be putting our shoulder to the wheel and doing work.  

One of my big goals has been teaching my companion english. When we leave the house I look at him  enthusiastically and say: "What time is it?!?!" He replies quietly "game time." He finally asked me what that meant ... it was too hard to explain. I eventually just told him not to worry about it,  just say it. 

My companion said my Khmer language skills had gotten A LOT better since our first week together. This is exciting to me. 

 I got to spend some time with Elder Hill at Zone conference which was sweet!  Zone conference is great, lots of the Spirit and lots of FOOD! Thats what I'm talking about!

I love you all!
Elder Nelson

I wish I could drive this around.

A Cambodian baptism.
