At noon we assembled with a few others and witnessed the baptism of a young 8 year old girl named Brianna. She just turned 8 years old and wanted to be baptized. Now you may think this is not unusual, but it is, her parents are not members. She has two older siblings who were baptized a couple of months ago, but she could not because she was not old enough. As you can imagine, she has been waiting on pins and needles for her birthday so she could be baptized. We are still waiting on mom and dad, eventually they will be ready too. Does the scripture, "A little child shall lead them" ring a bell?
Afterwards we met in our Missionary Correlation meeting and then we took two of our missionaries and met with a fellow who is in the military and had expressed a desire to learn about the church. We had a nice discussion about the Book of Mormon. He had several questions that needed answering and so we did our best to satisfy his questions. He seems to be very honest and sincere in wanting to learn. We will see him again on New Year's Day.
