In the past the Holidays, Thanksgiving & Christmas have been really slow times for missionary work here. but, this year, Pres. Mecham, our mission President, gave us all a challenge to not let down, but to work even harder during the Holidays. So all the missionaries have been working really hard and this week alone on our Island we had 15 baptisms. Once we get the totals for the whole month, I think we may break the old record of 15 baptisms for a month. We did not get pictures of all the new members, simply because we couldn't get to all the baptisms, but we got more then half.
The Mand Branch has struggled for years, they have not had a lot of Baptisms for years, but they got a new Branch Pres., Pres. Redes, and he has done miracles for this little branch, and Elder Cole and Elder Ashcraft have also done miracles for this branch. Today, they had 7 baptisms, they were suppose to have 10, but one young mans, mom would not give permission, and the other 2 still needed to work on a few things. So here are the Mand Baptisms.
|O.K., lets see if I get all the names right|
Michelle James ( a new Young Adult), Elder Cole, Jesse Sailas, Jordan Sailas, Keven Delosantos, Kmiko Delosantos
Merlyn Andon, Johnson Sailas, & Elder Ashcraft

Hopefully, their Mom will be baptized in the next week or so
