Baptism of Roxanna and Carolina
Last night after the Return and Report, President and I drove to McLean to a baptism in the Bella Vista Ward which is one of our Spanish wards. Two sisters were baptized. Sister Roxanna Prado and Carolina Sandoval. It was all in spanish, but the spirit was wonderful and we were very touched by the whole thing. The spanish people are so warm and friendly. Very affectionate and give lots of hugs and kisses. Elders DeHoyos and Miller performed the baptisms and we saw Elders Schnapf and MacFarlane, and Sisters Thompson and Alvarado. President and Sis Burton were also there and are two of the nicest people ever. Pres. Burton is as warm and affectionate as the spanish people and they love him.. He is Pres. Albright's councilor and speaks spanish so he oversees all the spanish wards. We have been blessed to attend 4 baptisms of 6 people this month. There have been many more that we have not been able to attend. Wish we could make it to all of them.
