All the convert baptisms needed to be entered by April 7 in order to "count" for the month of March. The count ended up 343 baptisms entered. Here is a picture of the filing cabinet with the baptisms. Each paper represents one person. The file farthest back is January, in the middle is February, and the closet file is the March baptisms. Sister Draper entered all the baptisms in January and most of the ones in February. I entered a few in February so she could teach me how. She and Elder Draper left on March 1 so I entered all the ones for March. I really could have used her help.
