Doug was asked by an investigator, Exequiel Barros, to perform his baptism yesterday, which he gladly complied with.  This morning we attended another baptism of an 8 year old, Asael Cano, who's part of a family we've been visiting.

Elder Araya/Chile baptized Samuel, Elder Critchlow/UT baptized María, and Doug baptized Exequiel.  Below:  Elders Perez/CA and Bilbao/Chile with Exequiel and Doug.  As you can see, missionaries are always super happy at baptismal services.

Not a bad way to begin the Sabbath day!!

    My name is Benji McMurray. I served in Catamarca in November 1996-February 1997. Are you still in Catamarca? I would love to reestablish contact with folks down there.

    Hope you're loving it!
