Hey Fam,

This week was pretty sweet! We have been teaching this lady named Crystal, and her kids. We went by on Tuesday to teach her the Plan of Salvation, and had one of the most spiritual lessons ever. She kept saying how she had never been taught about that stuff anywhere else, and I was just like, "well Crystal", you know what's next don't you, and she was like "Yep, I need to get baptized..." It was so cool. She is getting baptized on the27th. She has been anti'd by her family and she is just like "I don't care, I know it is true". Then she asked us to come back and teach her fiance, Keith. She likes it all so much and Keith was really cool. He had stopped going to any church when he was younger because there were so many churches and he didn't understand that. So he started to research every church there is. It was really cool talking to someone who knows so much about religion, yet is still open minded and willing to do what it takes. We talked to Crystal yesterday and she said that he had been reading the Book of Mormon and the Gospel Principles book all week. We committed him to be baptized as well, when he finds out it is true, and he has accepted. He already knows it is true though. He told us that our version of the Plan of Salvation is the only one that really makes sense, and he said he could feel something at church and when we talked to him, so we are excited about them both.

Willie is still doing good. He is taking us disk golfing and to dinner tonight, and he is supposed to get the Priesthood in the next few weeks. I am so excited about that.

So, up in Memphis they have "Elvis Days" goin on. So after e-mailing today, we are going to go up there and check it out. They have a bunch of Elvis impersonators that perform and stuff, it is up at Graceland.

Not much else to tell you, I think we are going to be getting out and knockin doors a lot this week to find more peeps to teach.

I love you guys...
Love Elder Nelson
