Welcome home Elder Nielson

 Elder Nielson returned home on December 18, 2014 to family and friends.  He expressed his love to his family and then with tears in his eyes explained how hard it was to say goodbye to such wonderful friends he had made in Russia.  He didn't want to leave them and expressed his desire to have stayed there forever if he could.  It was a sign of a young man that had served faithfully and with 100% obedience.
