This was a special baptism. It had snowed so much and church had been cancelled. In fact 42 stake conferences were cancelled the week before and now church was cancelled again due to all the snow in the parking lots and no where to park and very icy roads. So the McLean Stake decided to hold this baptism anyway. This was because Joe had invited his family from North Carolina and they had driven all night thru the blizzard to get here. His parents, siblings and even an uncle and their family had come for the service. With that much family support the baptism was postponed from Sat evening to Sun morning. It was held in the beautiful old Scots Run Chapel at 9:00 am. And so it was a very special meeting because they had the sacrament served since it was Sunday and most of the ward had turned out to support Joe. And afterwards they had refreshments that had been prepared for the evening before. So it was a unique baptism, but the spirit was very strong and everyone really felt it.
Joseph was a member referral by a friend of his, Sis. Lisa Chapman.
Elder Hall performed the baptism and Elder Ray gave a talk on Baptism.
