Sorry, last week I told you that this week's letter would be better, but I lied. Today we don't even have a P-day because on Wednesday we are going to La Playa Gigente, close to San Juan Del Sur. We are going as a mission. It will be awesome. We are going because at the start of 2015, President Russell put a goal of 2060 baptisms as a mission, and if we completed, he would take the mission to San Juan Del Sur (super cool tourist place and number one surf place in all Cenral America). So in 2015 as a mission, we baptized 2,158!!! It was a record!
All missions work hard, I won't lie, but not like this one. Here, daily we need to have 7 investigator lessons, 4 converts/less active lessons and 24 contacts and 6+ investigators in church every Sunday! So you add that all up in one week, that's 49 lessons, 28 converts/less actives and 168 contacts. Now you wonder why we baptize a lot here. Other missions you can watch Disney movies, here if you do that Pres just sends you home without exception. There is a reason behind it why we baptize here, cause, trust me, it isn't easy, at all! Finding positive people that will actually progress is very difficult. You have to work like a horse! If any other mission in the world had President Russell, they would baptize like us.
