Baptism in a Pool

Once of the first things that Travis and his new companion, Elder K. from Salt Lake City, got to experience together was M.'s baptism.
M. is a truly remarkable young man who was ready and eager to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ into his life. He was baptized in a backyard swimming pool belonging to one of the Church members there.
Travis was able to Skype with us on Christmas day from the same family's home and enjoyed a delicious barbecue to celebrate the day.
This is where Travis and his companion live. They even decorated a bit for Christmas.
Travis can always be counted on to send home photos of soccer fields and other things he knows we love.
If his shoes are any indication, he's been working very hard these past 18 months!
Travis has really enjoyed training and teaching Elder K. They've had a great time together and seen many miracles.
For the last photo of this post, here are all the missionaries in the Chile Concepciรณn South Mission as of December 2015. I always know to look for Travis in the back row, and there he is--tallest Elder in the middle. Love him so!
