A Great Way to Spend our Preparation Days!

What a joy it has been to turn our preparation days into a day of hopping
around the mission to attend as many of the baptisms of our hard working
missionaries. One Saturday we were able to attend 5 of them.

Rubyane receives lots of support on her baptism day from all her new
"Young Women" (youth organization) friends

Sister Williams and Sister Pilimai
share in the joy of their new convert baptism

Sisters Hartvigson & Sister Keelen
were instruments in the conversion of this wonderful family.

Sisters Moody, Brobst & Bunnel and the Hrovat family of 3
that were baptized yesterday

There is a scripture which truly describes our feelings
going to all of these wonderful baptisms

"If it so be that you should labor all of your days
in crying repentance unto this people,
and bring save it be one soul unto me,
how great shall be your joy with him
in the kingdom of my Father!".
D&C 18:15

The crowing event of missionary work is to witness a family go through the temple after they have been baptized and be to able to be sealed together for time and all eternity. This is truly what this great work is all about. Seeing the joy and happiness the gospel brings into lives!
This is the Washnora Family baptized a year ago.
