Lisa's Baptism.

This is Lisa and her daughter Chelsea. Vince used to date Lisa and introduced her to the gospel. She has studied the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants on and off for years. She hasn't been interested in talking to the missionaries for some reason. Sister Brown and Sister De Arton are new to the area and decided to call her. That made all the difference in the world and Lisa started taking the lessons from them. Some how she related to the sisters and it only took 3 weeks and she was ready to be baptized. Chelsea is taking the lessons too and we hope she will be choose to be baptized soon. Giving lei's after baptism is a custom over here. Lisa had so many she could hardly turn her head. They were beautiful. President and Sister Dalton came over for the baptism and took us out to lunch for my birthday. They also gave us a new assignment. The sisters are so busy in Kalaheo we will now assist them in giving lessons up there. Our first priority will still be Kekaha but we will be able to help the sisters too.

This is the font Lisa was baptized in. Most fonts are outside in a courtyard over here. We are not used to that. It was so beautiful, the weather, the courtyard, the flowers. What a wonderful day. The spirit was so strong. It was a blessing to be there.
