1000 Baptisms for 2010

Alma 26:4   Behold, thousands of them do rejoice, and have been brought into the fold of God.

On Wednesday evening, 12/29/2010, Our Mission reached its goal of 1000 Baptisms for the year.  When President Bowman arrived here a little over two years ago the mission was averaging around 300 baptisms per year.  In the first year under his direction, our baptisms doubled to 600.  Last December, President Bowman, along with the missionaries and our Heavenly Father, set a goal of 1000 Baptisms for 2010.   Marian and I have only been here since September but have been impressed with the dedication our missionaries showed in accomplishing this lofty goal.  They have prayed, sacrificed, and humbled themselves daily and now, with the help of our Heavenly Father, have been rewarded with the desires of their hearts.  This was accomplished with 40 fewer missionaries than were here just a few years ago.  We are the top baptizing mission in the North America South East area. 

Speaking of number one, our fleet, under the direction of Elder Gardner,  is number one in the World.  We have 42 automobiles in our mission and we are ranked by how well they are taken care of.

Acts 2:41  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized.
