The Elders in our ward had a baptism and our Mission President, President Reeder and his wife came to Calabanga to attend. It was really awesome to see them and talk with them, the two young girls being baptized were very excited. We couldn’t find baptismal clothing that fit the children, so they looked even smaller in the big white suits that were all rolled up and tied tight. Both of them were adorable. The day was memorable for them. After they were changed and the service was over they were asked to share their testimonies of the gospel with those who had attended their baptism. It is a powerful thing to listen to children share what they know is true. Both were very grateful for the Elders who baptized them and like many Filipinos, they had a hard time finishing their remarks. One thing that I have come to recognize, love, and appreciate is the fact that the people of the Philippines LOVE TO TALK! Story time is anytime 🙂
Have a good week eveyone! And I promise I will be better at updating you on whats happening on my end!
Bye for now,
