This last week was pretty slow, mostly because we had mlc and zone conference and then some lady from the Fort Smith ward wanted us to come and help with this play they were putting on that was supposed to be a big missionary opportunity but really the only people who came were members... and it took up all day. MLC was fun because I got to see a lot of missionaries that I hadn't seen in a long time from all over the mission. Then zone conference was fun because I got to see a bunch of other missionaries including some Elders who went to Bingham. It was sad though because there was a point in the conference when Sis Loveland had some missionaries up on the stand talking about the importance of obedience and she was talking to one Elder in particular who apparently was having baptisms every week and she said that this Elder, or his companion, said that the reason why was because they were being super obedient. Well Elder Nau and I both knew that they were in fact, not being super obedient because of some stories and personal experiences with them and after that the Spirit wasn't quite as strong for either of us the rest of the conference. Then on Saturday the play that was put on by the Fort Smith ward was not a quality production, but to us it was quite comical. On Tuesday while I was at MLC, Elder Nau and the Elder he was with actually set a baptismal date with Mckinley, the Pentecostal girl, and then on Friday we called the members that referred her to us to have them invite her to a baptism that was going on Saturday morning and the member told us that Mckinley had talked to her father about her baptism and he shut it down pretty quick so she thinks it would be best to not meet with the missionaries anymore. So now we have pretty much no work in Greenwood to do and we're trying to decide how much time to spend in Mena vs Greenwood because we have a lot more work here to do.... BUT, we do have an investigator in Mena, who the sisters had set a date with before they left and we met with her yesterday and we moved her date up from 21 Nov to 10 Oct and she is super ready! We went over the baptismal interview questions with her and we saw that she is super solid and then we saw what she still needs to be taught so that's really exciting.  Other than that there's not much else to tell.
