So I´m on a little late tonight because we had a zone leader conference in DF today and so we just now got back to our area. Thanks for all the emails!
This week was again amazing. We had another 20 baptisms in the zone...finishing the month of January with 79 baptisms in the zone. An ALL TIME MISSION record. The Previous record was in Culturas zone (where I was before--Chamapa) with 73 in a month, last May. The record for the zone of Metepec was 40, so that was almost doubled. It´s basically all because of 2 companionships though, both working out in a little branch in the middle of nowhere called Tejupilco. One companionship baptized 30 this month and the other baptized 21...adding 51 members to the branch in one month!!! It really is amazing what they are doing out there. The other 8 companionships combined for 28 baptisms...giving us 79 on the month. I can´t even describe out grateful I am to be part of such an amazing month in the zone of Metepec. I am learning a lot as a zone leader, how to lead people and help them understand their purpose a little bit better. It´s not always the most fun. A lot of the time we have a lot of pressure on our shoulders and we won´t be liked by everyone in the zone. But, when you see miracles in the zone and you see companionships start to have success it just is that much more satisfying.
So, this is the last week of the transfer....so next Monday I may (most likely) be writing you from a different area. It will be exciting to see what happens.
Today we had a conference with the zone leaders and we went over the numbers for the month and talked about things we can do better as a mission. Afterwards we ate at President´s sweet house (baked potato bar). I took some pictures of the area over by the area by the office and President´s house.
Also a picture with Elder Taylor, who will be going home next week.
And, a picture of the trash pile in our house that we have because we have been too lazy to buy trash bags. [Really? Gross.] Don´t worry mom, we’ll clean it up eventually.
Anyways, love you all and I hope you have a great week.
And this is my joy,
