Baptism's and BBQ

It was an especially lovely afternoon when our District President had the opportunity to baptize his mother :) She is a lovely lady and what a beautiful place to get baptized. He was overjoyed to be able to perform the ordination. This was a very spiritual moment for all involved and the feeling was warm and wonderful.
The other young lady has been taught by the Zone leaders and lives a few houses away. She is the niece of the counselor to the Branch President. Her mother said she was not interested in joining the church but that she had her own church. She did however come to church Sunday to see her daughter confirmed. She attended all the classes and even attended our English class. We try to teach English using gospel principles to help them understand the gospel better. (The Chuukese don't have some of the words we have in English)
He lives right on the water so the baptism took place in the backyard.
After the baptism we had a program in the house with family and friends.
We spent time playing with the kids, ate chicken, rice, breadfruit and cinnamon bread. We left with a special feeling and we were very happy that we were able to attend this function.
