A Hectic Day with Training and A Baptism

We arose early to drive to the Brandon Stake Center for a special Mission Leadership Council with Elder Ulisses Soares, one of the Presidents of the Seventy.  It was an excellent training session.  He taught on the purpose of missionary work.  Then he taught on how the leaders have additional responsibilities.  Elder Thompson, our area authority seventy, taught on how to work with ward leaders and gently correct them.  I wish all of the missionaries could have participated in the training meeting.  Hopefully the Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders will carry the messages to the rest of the missionaries.

After the completion of that training, we had to hurry to get to a baptism in Bradenton.  The couple who were married last week were baptized.  Bro. Soto is solidly built, so it was a challenge finding a baptismal jumpsuit to fit him.  Fortunately, they were able to find something that would work.  It was a nice baptismal service.  I think the Palmetto Ward will be good at fellowshipping them and helping them grow in the gospel.
