Wesley's Baptism

Jason's little brother, Wes, got baptized! It's been an awesome experience to witness his conversion to the gospel. Jason baptized him. Baylee spoke on baptism. Griffin spoke on the Holy Ghost. They both shared life experiences and bore sincere testimonies. The spirit was strong. It was a proud moment for me. Weston asked to get his swimsuit so he could go swimming in the baptismal font. He is still talking about when he gets to get baptized like Uncle Wes. We celebrated with friends and family at our house afterwards. The support was overwhelming. I served chicken chili verde and homemade lemon cake.

The following Sunday, Wes's friend, (Jason) who just returned from serving a mission in Russia confirmed him a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and gave him the gift of the Holy Ghost. It was a moment I will always remember.

Congrats Wes!
I know that you will be blessed for the decision you made to get baptized. I know that true happiness comes from living the gospel standards. We are grateful to have you as a part of our family. Thanks for letting us share this experience with you and for the example you set for my children.
The church is true!
