Week 32 Ireland

24 Nov

Dear Family and Friends,

This week was incredible! Mostly because Stephen was baptized!!! We had such a good day yesterday! On Saturday we had our last “pre-baptism” lesson with him and went through all of the last minute items. Then Sunday finally came! We had an excellent fast and testimony meeting then, afterwords, our ward had a chew and chat. Then came time for the baptism! Most of the YSA showed up. They are so awesome and supportive! Stephen has made some really good friends in the last 8 weeks. His mom, grandparents, and best friend came also. They are so sweet and supportive of his decision! Stephen was soooo nervous!! hahaha he wouldn’t even smile in the pictures! hahaha poor guy. Everything went smoothly (mostly because Elders weren’t in charge 🙂 hahaha) We even made a program!
The baptism was beautiful! Stephen was overcome with emotion as he entered the water! He is so so so happy!!!!!! The gospel has blessed him so much! He LOVES the church! He even showed his friend around the church building and bore wonderful testimony. Also, his sweet mom brought loads of food for afterwords! All in all it was an amazing day! The spirit was so strong! Stephen spoke with Sister Huntsman and I for a bit and told us how happy he is! I am so grateful that I was able to witness such an amazing event. He has come unto Christ and he knows the truth. He has found everything that he was looking for.
Khanyo is doing fantastic! The Elders are still teaching Emmanuel and he has set a date to be baptized on November 30th!
I’m sorry I don’t have too much time but honestly, Stephen’s baptism is really all that’s on my mind! haha I love you all so much! I hope you have a great week!
Love Sister Jones
