Sebatien and Utile are baptized and confirmed members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! What a glorious day that was. On Saturday, it was so incredible to be there with them, all dressed in white and surrounded by all the incredible members who helped them so much in their conversions. Sebastien, a former atheist from a very anti-religious family could not stop smiling and at the end, he told me quite frankly that it was one of the happiest days of his life. It was such an atmosphere of love and joy! Utile was crying was when she walked out in white and cried after the ordonance, when musical numbers were given and the two were welcomed into the ward. It was a day none of us will ever forget. I am so grateful that the members here are so, so loving, so warm and so joyful to those who are taking their first steps in coming unto Christ. Elder Petek and I got to go back to the Concorde ward yesterday and visit all of the incredible members there who we missed so much, since Elder Petek was performing the musical number and I was confirming Utile. It was so good to feel their Spirit again... we love our new ward and our new area, but Elder Petek will never forget the short time we spent on the other side of the river with these people.
