wooo! Christian got baptized on saturday! and confirmed on sunday! his baptism went pretty swimmingly (heh), and the district leader and his companion had a baptism too. i believe i already mentioned this but the stake president (the brother of christian's girlfriend) baptized him and sister suarez brought cake and empanadas and soda and everything. derlis came to the baptism too and liked it; he was also able to meet the stake president there who personally invited him to stake conference this weekend (there's gonna be a special session for investigators and recent converts too)but anyways we had three investigators in church yesterday which is the most we've had this transfer. juan and his kids came (he has three kids, but only two are older than 8). his oldest son, angel, wasnt very happy to come to church, so they ended up leaving after sacrament meeting, but juan said he liked it. we went to his house on monday i think and he apologized for not going to church and said he was sí o sí gonna come this sunday, which was pretty amazing. he had also read the assignment we left him (alma 32) and liked it a lot. we couldnt find him again until saturday night after the baptism. we got to his house at like 8 30, but he wasnt home. we clapped a few times and were about to leave when elder pacheco saw someone coming down the street on a motorcycle, and it was him. we didnt really teach much, just listened to a couple stories he had about how God has helped him in his life. at the end without even asking he started telling us what he liked about moroni 7 which we had left for him on monday, and that he had read the whole chapter. afterwards, when we got up to leave, he called all his kids and told them that they were going to go to church the next day with us, and made them all commit and shake our hands. angel did it quite reluctantly, but the other two were happy to come, and had even asked him the week before why they hadn't gone if they had committed to go, and we passed by sunday in the morning.
