New Year's Eve Baptism

For our New Year's Eve activity, we attended a baptism in the University Park Ward.  Although the scheduling of the baptism caused some controversy in the ward, the service turned out well.  There were several families from the ward who attended.  The Sister Missionaries taught an investigator before the baptism who then stayed for the baptismal service.

We drove Bro. Bischoff back to his home following the service.  He is very excited about being a member of the Church and is looking forward to being confirmed a member and receiving the Holy Ghost on Sunday.  He specifically asked to be baptized on New Years Eve as he wanted it to symbolize the beginning of a new life.  He is a very solid new member and will make a significant contribution to the University Park Ward.
