Following those meetings, we drove to Bradenton for a baptism in the Cortez Branch. We aren't sure why they scheduled the baptism following their three hour meeting block, but the time probably helped with the attendance. The sister who was baptized is married to an inactive member. We were told that she was hoping he would be able to baptize her. However, he isn't ready for that, so the branch president baptized her. She was primarily taught by Elders Laguna and Alarcon, and they were excited to have the baptism.
