We had the super consejo in Tuxtla on Tuesday. This meant Hermana Ortega and I spent all Monday afternoon in our old area, Central (where we were both born) visiting the members!! It was awesome!
Hermana I. and Family
Mama C and crew!
And....just as it turns out, our zone was the Zona Bautizadora and the Zona de Honor, which means we had the most baptisms and did the best overall. As we were giving our report about all we've done with the rescues and everything, the look on Presidentes face was the best! He was just so happy!
Then we presented our plan on what we are going to improve upon...new investigators. We have a goal to have 2000 new investigaros this month. New investigators that are golden and that are going to improve and get baptised. We came up with a plan to do this. It's called SEGUIDME.

But something I've learned during my year as a missionary, is that it is NOT about the numbers. Yes,we strive to have high numbers. Of course, we want to be the best in everything we possibly can. But not for our own achievement or recognition. For HIM.
Every person we contact, every person we help to baptism, is one of His children. It's a soul. As missionaries we help others reach their full potential through the atonement of Jesus Christ. A soul, a child of God, who then can help countless other children come unto Him. Return to Him.
We are not doing our Seguidme Inictiative to be proud of what we've done as a zone. Or have the goal of 2000 new investigators for our own glory or achievement. It's because if we really do all this, think about all the souls we can help. That we can save. Our goals are high because salvation is high. And as we are all striving to reach them, as a zone, we become more like Him. Because he was completely focused on others, and he wanted the best for us. That's why He died for us. So if anyone doubts, or asks why we have these goals, remember it's for Him, not for us.
Ether 12:4 Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety, hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.
Love you all. I've got 6 months left to tear Chiapas apart and find every single person who wants to come unto Him. I'm His servant, and I love it.
