Consejos August

The Zone Leaders gathered for a quick breakfast before Zone Leader Consejo. The night before they gathered for games and an asado (BBQ) to celebrate breaking the mission baptism record of 104. The mission had 125 baptisms in August. These are the men who worked the hardest to get those numbers.
Elder Harvey and Ruiz won the award for the winning zone, Maipu. All the missionaries in that zone will be celebrating. The award is just not based upon baptisms but other criteria like open the mouths, progressing investigators, church attendance, and fellow-shipping. Actually Maipu didn't have the most baptisms, but it is prorated according to the number of missionaries in the zone also. It takes a mathematician to figure it out.

Elder Hopkin (left) and Elder Robinson (right) of Godoy Cruz were second place, and Elder Morera (holding the tea pot) and Elder Bigelow (2nd left) from San Juan were 3rd place. All of these zone leaders did a fantastic job and their numbers were off the charts. But the math dropped them into 2nd and 3rd place.
