2 River Baptisms

Sunrise, as we pick up the Uh Branch for the ride to Nett
     We also got to have 2 river baptisms yesterday, the first was at 8:00 a.m. in the Nett river, these 3 were from the Uh branch, but the Uh Branch and the Nett Branch were having a combined activity all day on Saturday, so they had the baptisms in the morning in the Nett river and then went on to the party. I just have to say, THANK YOU, SAM, Sam Bailey always lets his truck be used to transport different branches to their activities, Sam usually drives, but Sam has been on Yap for the last 2 weeks, so we have had his truck. We sent him a quick e-mail and as usual he said yes, so we were able to help get the Uh branch to Nett and back

   To best describe how sweet it is to have the baptisms in the rivers and the ocean, think in your mind of the picture in the Book of Mormon called the "Waters of Mormon", that is what it is like. Hope you enjoy the picture, they really don't do justice to the spirit and surroundings.

  1. These pictures are beautiful! Plus, I know Roxanne! I'm so glad she was baptized and the Pohnpei Priesthood are doing it. Thanks for posting this!
