Elizabeth Glattli's Baptism
These pictures are from Elizabeth Glattli's baptism.
She is a very special lady that Elder Walbeck and Espinola found and taught her and she was going to be baptized in 2 days and then she had some questions about tithing and it took her some time to figure out that she could pay tithing and still survive. Summer came and the Elder's were transferred and the Hermana's tried to reach Elizabeth but it took 6 weeks before they were able to connect. Elizabeth accepted their challenge to be baptized and it happened tonight February 6th 2010. It was even more special for me because Elizabeth asked me to baptize her. I practiced the Baptism prayer in Spanish and got it right the first time. Elizabeth was a bit nervous and forgot to plug her nose before she went under but she did not come up sputtering. It was a wonderful experience and Elizabeth is very happy. After we changed our clothes, we were walking back to the Chapel she said that she was just floating on air she was so happy! It has been wonderful to be a part of bringing her to Gospel of Jesus Christ! I confirmed her a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and bestow the Holy Ghost on her. She has been so excited to have the Holy Ghost as a constant companion. She has to live worthy to have him as a constant companion but he will be there for her to guide and teach her.We are very excited to have her as a member of our Branch. She will be a great asset to the Branch.
