WE DID IT!!!! We broke the record!!! With exactly 11, what a coincidence right?? We barely squeaked out 11 thanks to our baptism of Samuel.  It actually was pretty intense, and it was one of “them” stories how it happened.  Everyone got baptized Saturday but as we all know it doesn’t count until the confirmation on Sunday, so the new members have to come to sacrament meeting.  There were baptisms in Menorca and in Ibiza and their sacrament meetings are in the morning. Our sacrament meeting is at 4 in the afternoon.  So at 2 o clock when we were eating lunch I called to make sure that the confirmations happened in Menorca and Ibiza.  And they both did, so we were officially sitting at 10 baptisms and it all came down to Samuel coming to church to get confirmed. He said he had to work in the morning and that he was going to be a little late and I told him as long as he was there before 5 it would be ok. So it gets to like 4:35 and he still hasn’t showed up and we are stressing at this point, so much was on the line!!!! And so my comp and I walked out to call him and as we walked up he had just ridden up on his bike.  And then I confirmed him a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  And then it was official. WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

President called us this morning to congratulate us and told us keep up the good work.  I am staying in Palma, only 2 transfers left :( so I think I will finish here, I would like to.  Being in Barc with Elder Perkis was the greatest, it was fun to work with him again just like old times and he has turned out to be an incredible missionary, he is a beast now.  We are going back to Barc this Sunday for concilio.  Lots of changes in the zone, we are losing 4 of the 5 district leaders we got and 2 of them are going to be zone leaders.  That’s why the zone was doing so good, we had good DLs and now we have 4 new ones.

Elder Kearon said a phrase in the conference that I really like.  

“We are happy but not satisfied.”

We are super stoked that we got the record, but now it is time to get it again!!! Ha ha love you all thanks for the birthday wishes, really appreciate it.
