Zoe was baptized today. She was so excited. Her grin went from ear to ear.
Rebecca and Steve commented the attendance was more than they expected. The little room was packed to capacity. Zoe asked me and her Grandpa Martin to talk. Russ Martin talked about baptism, and I talked about the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Before the baptism we met them for lunch at a diner named Kirby G. I had a brisket burger. It was a lean beef patty topped with slices of brisket. Best burger ever. As a result, I’ll want to return when we visit Atlanta.
They had an open house for Zoe after the baptism. Some of Steve’s family showed up, as well as some friends. The full-time missionaries were also there.
I enjoyed talking to the elders about missions and stuff. The elders were telling me they are going away from tablets and just using smartphones now. (Just wait for the next technology and they’ll be carrying something different. Technology changes too quickly.)
We stopped and picked up a snack at Chick-Fil-A. I wish we had one here in Palmyra. Elizabethe was reading they are #1 where ever they have a location. That’s impressive.
The Trip There
We arrived her yesterday afternoon. We had dinner at Rebecca’s with the Sister Missionaries.
