We had a high number, 125, of batches returned in the month of December. I suggest that everyone open their " My Artibration" tab and try to figure out why you may have had a batch returned. It is important to discover our mistakes and ask for help from your Ward Group Administrator or from the Salt Lake City Help Desk. You can contact the help desk by calling this toll free number: 1-866-406-1830.

 If you would like to call me I am more than happy to help. My number is 405-367-7159. Please do not try to start a new project without reading the "Project Information" directions or the "Field Help" guidelines on each data item first. Each project has new and different directions.

2013 Stake Goal

2 Million Names

Each Unit in the Stake will need to do
15,152 names a month for a total of 181,824 names in the year.

We need everyone's help to reach that new goal. Only three Wards in the Stake were able to achieve that in 2012.
If you know of anyone who might like to try indexing please introduce them to it and encourage them to participate in a Temple Experience in their own home. This is an ideal thing for New Converts, homebound, people preparing to attend the the Temple, or folks who are unemployed. Many blessings can come from participation in Indexing.
