This morning, we were able to visit with 13 of our student/soldiers; two of them only briefly, but yet, we were able to say hi to them and let them know we were thinking of them. Yesterday, we received a phone call from a sister of one of our soldiers, she was very concerned about him; we told her that we were planning on visiting him this morning and we were able to do so. We had a nice visit with him and encouraged him to be prayerful and to study his scriptures. We also invited him to come out to our activities. We hope that we are able to be a blessing to these young men and provide for them a spiritual retreat from their daily struggles. This afternoon we had the wonderful privilege of baptizing Kyle Janssen. His wife was baptized last March; after he returned from deployment, he investigated the church, did what we asked him to do, that is study and pray to find out for himself, from the source of all truth, Heavenly Father, if what we were teaching him was true. He did and gained a testimony of the truths, which we taught him, particularly the Book of Mormon.
Stephanie, Salena, Kyle
Being baptized with Kyle, was Sister Reneda Williams and her son J'Marion. He was quite frightened about getting into the water, but after a while, he found the courage and got in and was baptized.
