Visit to Bradenton Ward

We attended the Bradenton Ward today.  This is a good sized ward which seems to have good leadership.  However, as with all of the units, there is a large number of less-active members.  Following the block of meetings, we were able to visit with Elder (now Brother) Spach who returned with his family to participate in the baptism of the Marriner family.

After the regular block of meetings, we drove to Sarasota to attend the YSA branch.  One of the speakers was a young man we have become friends with.  He will leave this week to begin service in the New Mexico Albuquerque Mission - Spanish speaking.  He grew up in a Spanish speaking household.  The other speaker was his close friend whom he taught and baptized.  He bore a very powerful testimony of the Savior.  He will be a great missionary.  Hopefully, his friend will follow his example and decide to serve a mission as well.
