Baptism catch-up

We have lots of baptisms to catch you up on.  I never post the names of the new members because of privacy issues, but that doesn't mean we don't know their names and love every one of them!  Welcome to the church to these new members, pictured with the missionaries who taught them:

The Wiscombes and Elders Bird and Gozart in Alcazar.

Elders Brewer and Enfield in Almeria.

Elders Jack and Miller in Cadiz.

Hermanas Benavides and Knowles and Elder Castillo in Cartagena 2.

Elders Flores and Hannemann in Chiclana.

The Fuengirola District:  Elders Miranda, Berry, Bean and Sisters Perez and Barbee.

Malaga 1:  Elder Phipps, Sisters Miller and Jones, and Elder Skousen.

Breakfast in Jaen

Meet the Guffeys--always serving and much appreciated by the missionaries in the San Fernando Zone!

P-day basketball in Granada.

Meet Elders Booth and Buechert.  Twins separated at birth?

Then we have Sister Beuchter and Elder Buechert.  This is going to be confusing even for English speakers.

A little message to home from the great missionaries in the Spain Malaga Mission!
