Hey Y'all!!

We had another great week, we found us 8 new investigators and we have some very solid people we are working with.  Right now we have 4 baptismal dates and have a few more investigators that we are planning on setting dates with this week.  The biggest thing that has contributed to our success is we have had a lot more lessons with members there, it changes the whole lesson.  We should be having some baptisms very soon.

We did something pretty cool this week.  Our entire zone went down to Hot Springs for what is called a ward council outreach.  Each missionary was paired up with a member and was assigned to 6 - 7 less active members.  We went out and invited them to a devotional much like the one we did here in Little Rock a couple months ago, we just redid it in the Hot Springs ward, there were some pretty amazing experiences, we were able to find a couple  people that had never been to church in Hot Springs but that wanted to come back, as well as a couple of part member families for the missionaries to teach.  We still haven't heard the total numbers for the entire outreach, but Brother and Sister Stephens and I had some great success.

Our Zone meeting went really well, it was on improving our teaching skills, we did a pretty fun companion unity activity at the end because Elder Carter and I had been thinking a lot about how important that was.  About a week ahead of time we sent out a questionnaire for each missionary to fill out about their companion to find out how well they knew them, then in the meeting we invited 3 companionships up and tested them.  We would ask a question and both would write it down then reveal their answers, it was a lot of fun.  We ended it on a spiritual note by having a couple of companionships share their favorite scripture and conversion story, we are hoping  it helped unify everyone.  The zone had another baptism this weekend which takes us to about 5 for the month which is more than we had all last month, we should keep having some throughout the rest of this month.

Things are goin great out here in Little Rock.  Thank yall for all your support.
Love, Elder Nelson
