Baptisms, random things and the return of Elder Briki

Hermanas Rindlisbacher and Guymon in Elche 2.

Elders Sharp, Erickson and Chavez in Jerez.  This may have been published before--I can't remember because there have been so many baptisms in Jerez!

What a great day for the church in Malaga!  There were 11 people baptized on September 28 in the Malaga zone, and here are four of them, pictured with Elder Bird, Elder Peters in white, and Elder Reynolds.

Hermanas Nielsen and Folsom on September 28 in the Malaga 3rd Ward.

This could be on the cover of the Liahona.  What beautiful, happy missionaries!  Pictured from left, back row:  Hermana Hubbard, Elders Webb, Adams, Rodriguez and Paxman. 
2nd row:  Hermanas Cameron, Kunz, Guymon and Rindlisbacher.  Elder Pascua in front. 

Look what Elder Peters found in the closet in Malaga.  They looked for white clothing everywhere and found this gem. 
Elder Briki is back!  He broke his ankle last February and had to return home to recuperate from surgery.  He is now in Utrera with Elders Robinson and Gomes.  Welcome back Elder Briki!

"I know the whole teaching the animal thing isnt original, but im pretty sure they havent taught a wild chameleon yet."  --Elder Bivens

While Hermana Leon was on an exchange with Hermanas Andrew and Roan, they found this wise counsel.
