This week was much, much better. We didn't have to take any crazy trips to Santiago, so we had a lot more time to work in our sector. Found a couple of new people to teach. Lincye, a 20 year old girl we found knocking doors. She has a one year old son and is very open to talking with us. Really sweet. Also Juan Carlos, who we received as a reference. He's a 50 something year old gardener. He is an interesting man. When he took the hand of Hna Rodriguez he said she is a fearful person. When he took my hand he said I have a lot of sugar in my system and I need to drink more water.

We had another baptism in the ward this week! Leonardo, an investigator of Elder Calixto y Elder White. He is amazing. He's given his testimony twice already in sacrament meeting. He's a colectivero, 30/40 year old man with a lot of enthusiasm. His wife, children, and mother came to his baptism. I'm pretty sure they're all going to get baptized as well. Carlos came to see the baptism! it was the first time he was able to see one, so that was good. But he hasn't been reading the Book of Mormon. He says everytime he tries to read it, his head hurts. Ugh! Excuses, excuses. I really have no idea what he wants. So we are just going to press forward and see what we can do to help him.

This Sunday was the primary program. So cute! Rene came! We were able to have a tour of the church with him after sacrament meeting and as we were finishing in the baptismal faunt, he told us that he wanted to prepare to be baptized the first week of December. To say the least, we're kind of happy :) 

And tonight we have to travel to stay the night in Maipu so tomorrow we can get up early for the meeting with Elder Holland. It is going to be amazing! But I have a feeling I'm going to be very tired.
