Three beautiful baptisms and golden investigators

Chanita - The most golden investigator to ever walk the planet!
She is already teaching our other investigators. What the? I don't even know where she came from. But I just love every time we teach her because she is AMAZING! GOLDEN! How many times can I say it? We had dinner with her last night and the Rempps and another investigator named Som. Chanita said the closing prayer after we taught a little lesson and she sobbed through the whole thing - she loves this church and loves the way it makes her feel. The other investigator is someone we have only taught once. She was sobbing too. Hooked her already :) There is no going back for either of them now.

Ok. So now for the Baptisms. I will give you the play by play. We woke up on Sunday morning and found out that the font in Din Daeng is outside and needs to be cleaned out. Oops. So we left really early and went to clean out the font. I was literally drenched in sweat and water. Nice way to go to church. Oh well. Then we couldn't figure out how to turn the water on and we were starting to freak out a little bit because we thought it was going to take 3-4 hours to fill. Luckily the elders came and turned it on and it only takes one hour to fill. So that turned out fine. We had tons of investigators at church because Pim brought a lot of her neighbors to watch the baptism and her grandma, who isn't a member, was there as well. After church, we had lunch. Then Pim changed. Cute. She had to get baptized three times. But I think she liked it - it draws out the experience.
After Pim's baptism, we ran over to Asoke for the rest of church over there. New and Kim's baptisms were beautiful and very well prepared. I was very impressed by the Asoke ward - it is a stable, long established, well run ward. They had the baptism programs all printed out and passed it around in Relief Society so that everyone could sign it. Great idea. Nothing like that in Din Daeng. Then the baptism was well attented and went very smoothly. When Kim got baptized, she kind of freaked out a little - the water wasn't quite high enough and she kind of got scared when he was dunking her and made a funny little noise. It was really cute. But she got under the water. So that is good. They bore great testimonies after -
