In the Barretos Ward lives a child named
His family lives in another city and his dad works nights but they are
practically always at church even though his Dad goes sometimes without
recently turned 8 which means it is time for him to be baptized. He had always
very happily said, "I am going to be baptized and my father is going to
baptize me." This would be a normal statement for a child who grew
up in the church except for the fact that Brandon 's
father, Carlos Eduardo, wasn't a member and really had no desire to become one.
never doubted that he would be baptized by his dad. We talked with his
dad two weeks ago and basically he said that he didn't want to be baptized and
never thought he would be baptized. The next Sunday he went to church and
basically, completely randomly, told the Bishop that he wanted to be baptized. Brandon never doubted and
next Sunday he will be baptized by his father. Brandon
Carlos Eduardo was baptized in the stake center in Rio Preto since it was stake conference, which was pretty cool since I had never had a baptism on my mission in an actual chapel built by the church. Stake Conference was quite awesome as well since the stake was divided. I am now serving in the Rio Preto South stake. President Claudio Costa, the area president, was here and spoke very well. Overall it was a good weekend.
I hope you all have a good week. I sure did! I love you all!
