"A White Weekend"

Jack Knight & President Beck

It has been an amazing week in the Arizona Phoenix Mission, and the Lord has blessed us with a great harvest of baptisms. There wasn't anywhere I would have rather been then going from baptism to baptism and feeling the words "How great shall be your Joy! President Beck and I had to decide which of the 35 baptisms we would attend unfortunately we couldn't attend all of them. The ones we did go to filled our hearts! The first one on Saturday Morning was Jack Knight who had been investigating the church ( his wife was a member) for the past 3 years. He had many a sister missionary teach him the gospel but did not gain his testimony right off. Today he was baptized and there were many who came to see the long awaited event. Because so many of the previous sister missionaries were involved, they were all able to come to the baptism, including Sisters Solomon, Clark, Eustice and Willardson who came back to the mission to be a part of this wonderful day. They all had a special place in their hearts for this man they had taught for so long. All the sister who taught him sang at the baptism and it was very touching.

Sister Solomon, Clark, Eustice, Fleener, Willardson, Brobst, Kolo, Hudson, Freeman
all taught Jack through the years .

The day did not stop there, we attended many other baptisms, two of which were completions of families who had entered the straight and narrow gate to return to their Heavenly Father. Now their focus would be to prepare to go to the temple to be sealed for time and all eternity as a family.

Elders Wesche, Johnson, Schafer, and Kennington were part of this family baptism.

It was a beautiful weekend as we shared in the baptisms of so many who entered the waters of baptism and became members of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
