Three emails from Elder Nielson this week!

#1 - Hey mom! Thanks for the mid week email! I was so busy this week going to almost half the apartments in the mission I didn't get to check my email at all. I hope I will be able to send a nice good email tomorrow with some good pictures too but I am never sure about how much time I will have. If you notice it is like 10 pm out here right now ha-ha. Me and Elder Daduya are still out here working in the office and tomorrow, really early, we take off to Manila to Pasay City to deal with some customs problems. I think we will stop by the Mall of Asia on our way home though and maybe even the temple. It will be a fun p-day.
Hey I found a place to make me a suit and I found a place to make handmade leather shoes! I am going to get all my shopping done here before I leave ha-ha. I also started ordering some cool wood carving things. I need some ideas though because I found a guy that can carve anything you could possibly imagine and it will only cost about 500p. He is a master caver and world famous. He has many works in the Vatican and other works worldwide that were sold for thousands of dollars and he is in the world record book for smallest and most detailed last supper carving ever. He went crazy though due to being over worked by his ex-wife. Long story short, she left him and took everything leaving this poor old crazy man with nothing. But ya he is actually crazy now and just carves his dreams ha-ha. Me and the office staff thought it would be funny to get him to carve a bust of President Mangum winking out of stone ( he does stone as well). Well send me your ideas.

Love you lots! Hope the party went well.

#2 - Hey mom. We had a great time in Manila earlier today. I will send you some nice photos. Well I am glad that my letter was worthy enough to be read in the ward. I sent a bunch of emails. Hey grandpa spilled a big secret I think haha. He said that you are going to Disneyland next week! Well I hope that goes great for you guys. I am sure you will all have a ton of fun out there. Just be safe.
Well I got to go and buys some stuff for the week. Have a great day. Love you. I emailed more to dad and if I get time later I will email you more. Well Love you lots.

#3 - Hey Dad!

So we just got back from Manila. That was a cool trip! Your son now knows how to deal with customs. Man, me and Elder Daduya fought so hard to get a stupid package back from the Philippines customs.
There is a couple of funny restaurants out here that are still really big here in the Philippines but managed to go under back in the states. One of which we just ate at. I don't know if you know what Kenny Rogers is but it was a really good roasted chicken restaurant. It was started in the states and ended up dying out several years ago I guess. Another great restaurant that started and died in the states is Shakey's Pizza. Shakey's is huge here  but it is no where to be found back home or in the states. I guess this is just where all restaurants go to die haha. Well thanks for the email dad. Love you lots. Hope you have a great week.
