Baptism Between General Conference Sessions

Sent from Sister Shaha in Gilbert who fed these wonderful missionaries!
         This week has been really awesome!  On Friday we did exchanges.  My Zone Leader told me that the moment we got lost we would probably get a new investigator.  The second we got lost, we saw this guy that was sitting on his porch.  He just moved in and he had never heard of the Church.  We showed him a Book of Mormon and explained it to him.  He started reading it as we left.  

         I saw you a bunch in General Conference on Sunday, Mom.  We had to set up everything to get ready for the baptism on Saturday and missed half the morning session.   We found out that most of the keys we needed to get into the font and the cupboards were lost and the stake president could not find them.  So, I got to put my credit carding-door-opening skills to the test.  I got into the cupboards with a bent hanger.  So all the skills of breaking into things that I developed over the years paid off.  Then everyone came late.  We were having the boyfriend’s dad baptize the girl.  When they were already standing in the water, at the last second we noticed that the Bishop wasn't there in the room.  We went out in the hall looking for him.  We saw him and the boyfriend standing in the hall talking. The Bishop said to us that there was going to be a change of plans. Kent was going to be baptizing Rosalie.  So, all the kids started singing Primary songs while Kent got dressed.  It was super powerful and awesome!  We had wanted Kent to baptize Rosalie, but we didn't know if he was worthy to do it.  Everything worked out.  YAY!
