Baptism and Senior Missionary Gathering

Late this morning, we drove to the Bradenton building to attend a baptism for Jessica.  She is the girl friend of a members and has been taught by Elders Nelson and Spach.  They reported that she was very enthusiastic about being baptized and invited us to attend the service.  She is very excited about being a member of the Church.  Her parents, who are not members, are less enthusiastic, but they attended her baptism.  Now her challenge is to help her boyfriend decide to serve a full-time mission.  He isn't sure he wants to go, but she wants him to go.  Hopefully that will help encourage him.

After the baptism, we drove to Tampa to join with the other senior missionaries for a social gathering.  We met at the clubhouse of the apartment complex where the Healey's are living.  The purpose of the gathering was to say good-bye to two senior couples who will be leaving shortly, the Judd's and the Ainscough's.  The Judd's have been serving as CES missionaries and running the institute program.  The Ainscough's were originally assigned to the Venice Ward, and then they were transferred to Tampa.  They have been helping the Healey's with apartments and also worked two afternoons a week at the Orlando Temple.  They have served a 6 month mission.

We returned back to our apartment in time to watch the Women's Conference Session.
