Albert’s Baptism

Saturday, April 23, 2005

Today was a good day but also really crazy and busy. This morning we had Albert’s baptism at the chapel in Silang. We left from the meetinghouse this morning at 8:00 and got there at about 9:30. When we got there, however, the church was all locked up and no one had a key. We texted the Silang Elders and when they didn’t reply we were about to get on a jeep to go to their apartment. Luckily they got there just as we were about to get on a jeep. They didn’t have a key either though and so we texted all over the place until finally somebody came to open it up at about 10:30. We also, then, had trouble getting the font filled. Well, around 11:15 all was finally ready and we had the baptism. It was really sweet and I know that he felt the spirit. Elder Durrant also did a great job and didn’t mess up at all. I guess it worked out all right even though it was a little crazy.

We also had to do our interview for the sisters in Dasma. The interview was for a 22-year-old young woman named Mimilanie Lelia. It went well and she is ready for baptism next week on the 30th.

The sprit is amazing and even though I’ve never had to deal with a situation like that I was helped to know what to do. It really is amazing.
