We visited two wards today, actually a ward and a branch. I had interviewed a sister who was to be baptized in the Largo Branch, the Spanish-speaking unit in the St. Petersburg Stake. Since her baptism was this morning, we decided that we would attend. She had a lot of family members who came to her baptism, so there was a large congregation. The missionaries taught the restoration lesson during the service, and several people took copies of the Book of Mormon.
The Seminole Ward meets in the same building. They have arranged the meeting schedule so the Sunday School and Priesthood/R.S. times overlap. This allows the children in the Largo Branch and the youth to attend classes with the Seminole Ward. The Largo Branch has adult classes in Spanish. Since there were so many investigators in the Gospel Principles class, we decided to attend the Seminole Ward's Gospel Principles class. There are six missionaries assigned to the Seminole Ward, and they may have all had investigators attending the class. So we were able to at least understand what was being said for one meeting.
I attended the Largo Priesthood Meeting while Renee opted to attend the Seminole Relief Society. We both attended the Spanish Sacrament Meeting. Sis. Sandoval was confirmed a member (in Spanish) by Elder Robertson who has only been out about 7 weeks. Several of Sis. Sandoval's children and grandchildren stayed for the 3 hour block of meetings. After the meetings, Sis. Sandoval told me how happy she is to be a member of the Church.
On the way back, the dashboard lights came back on. So I guess I have another trip to the repair shop.
