Jonathan's Baptism

Jonathan decided to be baptized at Steve and Sheila's church. He's made some friends while we've been here and has been going to Pioneer Club so he's excited. Tom and I have talked to Sheila and Steve and Sheila has gotten in touch with Eric for us. Jonathan said he would like to do a small, private baptism instead of being baptized at the Sunday morning service so that's what we did tonight.

We went in to talk to Eric in between services yesterday with Jonathan just so he knew Jonathan was prepared. After asking a couple questions, Eric explained to Tom and I where everything was and how they do the service.

Sheila invited some of the people we have gotten to know over the years so Ken and Lisa Slagle, Tom and Mardell Williams and Eric and Shannon all came along with the kids. We decided to go out for pizza afterwards. Tom got to baptize Jonathan too so that made it extra special.
