Gracie's Baptism

Yesterday, August 4th, Grace became the newest member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

It was a very nice service with her Grandpa Lee and Grandma Sagers giving wonderful talks on Baptism and The Gift of the Holy Ghost. I said the baptismal prayer in Portuguese, and I was able to give her a wonderful blessing and confirm her a member of the church with her grandpas, uncles, a member of our Bishopric, Mike Pierce, and our home teacher and good friend Matt Blackhurst.

4 Generations
Her Great Grandma was also able to come, as were plenty of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Diana's sister Laura's family lives in Washington, my brother Glen lives in Illinois, and Uncle Stephen and Jake were at the county fair showing Jake's pigs and unable to attend. But he did get a red ribbon pig and white ribbon pig.

Afterward we had a nice potluck dinner of beans and rice, numerous salads and wonderful desserts. Aunt Kelly also made her a very nice cake.

She got a new CTR necklace, and her very own set of imprinted leather scriptures.

Congratulations Gracie girl, you are on the right track!
