One of the Elders who taught the family for several months, Elder Spach, returned to perform the baptism of the parents. All of his family also came. He was well-liked in the ward, so the ward members were pleased to see him and had good things to tell his parents.

We then drove to Sarastoa for another baptismal service. This brother had been taught by Elders Davis and Colburn and then by Sisters Torres and McGee. He has several LDS friends, one of who drove from Jacksonville to perform the baptism.

Following that service, we drove to Lakeland (about an hour) to meet the other senior missionaries for dinner. One of the senior couple, the Severinsons, are returning home in another week. Their assignment here has included serving in the Orlando Temple twice a week. They have learned to love the temple. On their way home, they will stop at 13 temples and take three weeks for the drive.
