Surprise! It's transfer day and Elder Nelson is on his way to Superior, WI! His new companion will be one of his "best friends," Elder Chamema. As difficult as it is to leave an area and investigators, Elder Nelson is happy and excited to move up North!

While attending a four-day missionary training meeting in Bloomington, Elder Nelson had the opportunity to catch up with friends from Las Vegas who are also serving in the Minnesota, Minneapolis mission. They rarely have an opportunity to see each other. You can tell by the smiles on their faces, it was fun times!

On June 17, 2010 a string of tornadoes ripped through Minnesota. The northwestern town of Wadena was the hardest hit with a quarter of the buildings wiped out. On June 18th and 19th, 12 missionaries, a missionary couple, the Murdochs, and 22 members from the St. Cloud Stake helped dig out the town. Scott thoroughly enjoyed this service opportunity! He said, "It was a lot of fun to be up there. We were there for two days, and we cleaned up five different houses. It was humbling to see how much damage a tornado can do. It was even more humbling to meet the people and to help them out in their time of struggle."
