April 22, 2016 New Member Questionnaire mtg for Prospect Ward. We cooked pork and rice. The elders bought Chinese dumplings. We had a wonderful time and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. All the new members filled out a questionnaire to help the missionaries understand their needs and to make sure they are understanding what being baptized means.
