Hello everyone :)
So, this has been another great week. After our baptism last week, we were kind of like, "So, what now?" And so this week we put almost all of our energy into finding new people. And we did find new people :) and we´re going to have a baptism of one of the new people this Saturday. Something pretty awesome is that we´re baptizing every other week. I like that a lot. It´s a lot more fun than not baptizing or baptizing every once in a while :) We´ve still got a lot of work to do, though because we don´t have near as many investigators as we should, and our goal for the month of August is 6 baptisms. So far we only have one planned (the one for this Saturday). But, we know that the Lord has prepared us people. We just have to find them. So, that´s what we´ll do :)
Umm... I really don´t have that much more to report this week. We´re working hard. We walk a lot in the sun :) and apart from that we decided to start exercising a lot better than we had been and we passed the majority of this week very, very sore (we did the routine that Dad sent me last week a couple of times).
Oh! We also went to Tuxtla for our leadership council. And we were really psyched to see that even though we´re one of the smaller zones in the mission, our zone baptized more than any other in the mission (except that we tied with another zone that has 28 missionaries--we only have 16). So, we´re planning a repeat of that this month (not that it's a competition, it´s just good to know that we´re working well). Oh, and I promised the elders that I would buy everyone pizza if we meet our goal of baptisms as a zone this month. So, I´m really hoping that at the end of the month I'll have to ask you to transfer about 80 dollars from my savings account so that I can do that. Anyway. That´s all I have to report :) I´m very happy. I love you all very much! Have a great week!
Con mucho amor,
