Guess what y’all!!
If you read the topic, then you’ve guessed it! (: WE GOT A BAPTISM!!
This is Jordan and he is so sweet! I am so proud of him and his decision to be baptized.
I just want to say that this baptism would not have happened without the Lord’s hand. There was so much that was tryin to stop this baptism from happening! When Sister Brunner and I first got to the church, there was a man in the parking lot who we knew was a druggie and we are not allowed to be alone with this man, so we parked our car on the other side of the building and ran inside! It was kinda scary because we were watching him from the inside out and he went to EVERY single door that the church has and he banged on them so loudly and ferociously…it was kinda scary. So Sister Brunner and I got kinda locked in the church and were sneaking around so this man wouldn’t see us. We called our Bishop and he took care of the situation, but after that little problem, we had another problem! We could NOT get the printer to work! We were tryin to print off programs and wow, it did not want to work for us…eventually, with 15 minutes til the baptism started we got them to work!!!(YAY!) But the next problem, Jordan forgot his extra under clothing and towel! Oh man, did we feel awful! Once again, it all worked out with a member bringing a towel ‘just in case!’ *PHEW* The baptism started and it was going well, then was it time for the actual service, and bless his heart, the poor Elder who was baptizing Jordan, slipped on the stairs walking into the baptismal font…he told us that he now has giant bruise on his leg…Awful! But now, Jordan is baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Wow! What a wonderful experience!
Also, whoever built our church’s baptismal font did a terrible job because when you think of a tub, the water slopes TOWARDS the drain right? Well not here! It slopes AWAY from it…So guess what we got to do after everyone left?? We squeegeed it!! HAHAHA! It was fun. (:
I love my God. He is my Father and I know I can rely on him for anything! My thanks are to Him and His son, Jesus Christ, and of course all of y’all who have kept me in their prayers. I love y’all so much!! Have a great week and remember to stay close to our Heavenly Father!!
With much Love and Gratitude,
Sister Jesselyn Drummond
