The assistants had taken the key for the water turn on so the Elders were filling the font with a hose, they added some warm water to try and make it more comfortable but it was still pretty cold and not very deep which made it a bit more difficult.
They had many family members and friends who came to support them, many are not members but were asking about the Church.
They are a beautiful young couple, we wish them the very best.

The Elders phoned us Friday evening and told us they were having a wedding and a baptism on Saturday morning and invited us to come. They have been teaching this young couple, Alisha and Edwin, for awhile and today they will be married so thay can be baptized. It was so nice to be included and they seemed happy to have us there even though they don´t know us. I took several pictures which we printed and gave to them the next day at church. I always pray that the new members will stay active and learn more of the gospel. We actually have an 80% retention rate but there is still that 20%.
