August 1, 2011


Alright, We had a great week... We were really worried about investigators after Willie got baptized because he was all we really had, but then on Tuesday, this lady that we had taught awhile back, called us and wanted us to come over. Things have taken a turn for the worse in her life and she wanted to change. We saw her Wednesday and had an amazing lesson and then she came to a baptism on Saturday. The baptism was for this guy named Robert, that the sisters have been teaching. He is really cool, one of the nicest guys ever. So he knew this lady, so she came and could really feel the spirit and kept telling us that she knew this was where she needed to be. She wants to get baptized but wants to learn more about the church first. Her two daughters have been meeting with us as well. They are also really cool.

As well, we went to see the Soto family. They have 2 kids who aren't baptized, and they haven't been to church in a few years. We saw them Thursday and invited them to come, and they came!@!!! It was awesome. We are going to try to get their kids baptized next month, we just need to be able to meet with them a little more often. We are pumped, it looks like we could easily have 5 baptisms next month. We just need to keep being obedient so the Lord will help us out.

On Saturday we went down to Senatobia for the Stake soccer tournament. We played 2 games and it took us until halfway through the second for us to figure out what we were doing. We ended up scoring one goal on the tournament...haha I got the assist!!!

So, I was thinking, doesn't Thomas have like just 3 months until he goes home??? So weird, he just left yesterday!! It's trippin me out how fast this mission thing goes by...

Anyway, Alls well in Southaven. I love you guys...
Love, Elder Nelson
