Baptisms in the Englewood Branch

2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (1)This evening we returned to Selah as this baptismal service was taking place.  President Cesar Moreno’s son, Pedro was baptized, and also Norma’s husband, Alfonso.  It was a wonderful meeting and a bit of a sad farewell for several of our missionaries who have served here and are going home Tuesday.  Elder Johnson, Elder Jimenez and Hermana Dee are in our departing group.  Some of the others will be transferred to other areas this week, so there were some tearful goodbyes.2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (3)2016-7-3 Baptism Selah2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (4)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (7)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (8)Hermana Mrozek and Manuel dropped by.  They will be married in a few weeks!2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (10)Elder and Sister Patriotic Call:2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (11)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (13)We are thrilled to welcome Alfonso to the Rama:2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (15)These two are like brothers.  Elder Johnson has served with President Moreno for 6 transfers!2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (17)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (19)Norma and Alfonso–Norma was baptized a few weeks ago!2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (20)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (22)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (24)Missionaries are like family to these dear friends.2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (26)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (28)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (29)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (30)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (31)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (32)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (33)Here is our dear Moreno family with their handsome son, Pedro, who was also baptized this evening.  We love him.  We love this family.2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (35)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (36)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (37)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (38)Elder Turley and his Transfer Journal.  Elder Turley returns home in 3 weeks so he can start school in AZ.  We are going to miss him too.2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (40)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (41)At the end of each transfer, these Transfer Journals are passed around like yearbooks for each to sign.  2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (42)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (50)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (43)Sad farewells:2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (45)Hermana Tecuatl will be moving to another area and will be one of our new STLs!2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (46)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (47)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (48)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (49)2016-7-3 Baptisms Selah (51)What a room full of emotions tonight.  I was grateful to be there.
