Anytime we have a baptism it is a good weekend. But this was especially sweet because it has been a loooong time comin'. Even before we got here, the missionaries had been teaching this young husband and father the Gospel. His wife joined the Church about 4 (?) years ago along with her sisters and mother. Every missionary we've served with have taught him, we've taught him, many before us taught him. But it took a very sick(but you'd never know it) Elder who transferred here from a Honduras mission because of illness, who has only been here for 5 weeks and is now ready to go home, to teach him that the Gospel is what he needs to make his family complete. Ivan's countenance literally has changed. It is one of those miracle baptisms that we rejoice in!

Also at church this weekend we had a record number of inactives, less actives, new members and investigators in attendance, including the young mother that Ron and I are teaching . It was a fabulous Sabbath!
