I was sooo very nervous baptizing three of the four baptisms. When I baptized the mother she of course was heavier than the boys, and with the water being so cold she gasped for air right before going under the water which really startled me! Thankfully, I didn't mess up at all according to the two witnesses. We asked the newly called 1st counselor in the Bishopric to give a talk on baptism and my companion gave the talk on the Holy Ghost.
Well the cutest thing happened before I baptized M.E.. Right before entering the water he tells me, "Elder I don't want to do this anymore." I said, "Why what's wrong?" He tells me, "I'm nervous." I bend down until we are at the same height and tell him, "Don't worry, I am new at this too. I have never baptized anyone before and you are going to be the very first one!" He asked, "Never ever?" "Never!" I replied. "What do you say?" He clenched his fists and said, "Va lets do it!" I swear he is such a champ! I was so proud, it was as if he was my little brother.
Well sure do love you all!
|He is like my little brother and a champ!|
|Love this Family|
|It was a happy day!|
