A Big Day for the Seja Family!

2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (1)We had meetings all afternoon, and left a JustServe Regional meeting in time to make it to the end of a wonderful baptismal service in Selah where several members of the Seja family were baptized.  This family has been investigating for more than a year and the room was packed to overflowing with Branch members and missionaries.  It was wonderful to walk into the room and feel the outpouring of love there.

We have a mission policy that if you helped teach someone, you are allowed to come to their baptism, no matter where in the mission it may be.  Most of the many Elders who came tonight helped teach this family. It was a wonderful event for them.  Tomorrow the Elders will send me photos of the family before the baptism.  Here are some I took at the end this evening:2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (6)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (15)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (7)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (11)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (5)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (20)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (28)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (24)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (25)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (17)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (14)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (10)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (13)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (34)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (8)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (16)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (29)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (4)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (33)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (21)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (18)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (22)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (12)2015-11-29 Baptism Seja Family Selah (27)
