Our First Baptisms

Every missionary loves baptisms, and even though proselyting isn't our main responsibility, we do get to accompany the young Elders often as they teach the gospel to people who are investigating the church.  We have grown to love these people, and love to see their lives changing as they embrace the gospel.  Saturday we attended the baptism of Selam and Yassmin Istifanus.  A mother and her 10 year old daughter. They asked Elder Fowler to baptize them and it was a wonderful experience.  We are so happy for them, and for the members of the Crystal Palace Ward.  They will be a great addition to the ward.  With Yassmin and the two younger daughters, they almost double the size of our Primary!
