We are hoping and praying that Elder Nelson is reassigned to our mission! He served as a Zone Leader and we would love to see what he could do standing and pain free in the Lord's service!

We truly miss Elder Nelson!
Elder Nelson (on the left) with his last companion, Elder Bledsoe. Elder Nelson spent almost all of his year of service on his knees. After two failed surgeries he was still in pain. We had to send Elder Nelson home for a repair surgery but he has been an incredible example to this mission of the dedication and sacrifice he was willing to make in order to serve His Father in Heaven and His Savior with all of his heart, might, mind and strength! On his final day--- he ran into President Baxter -Pacific Area Presient (far left) in the mission office---a tender mercy!
