We did some more sorting in the morning and then attended two baptisms. The first was in the Palmetto Ward. This was a convert baptism combined with an eight-year old baptism. The Elders and the sister to be baptized were there on time. However, the family with the eight-year old were late. I of course was stressing because we had to leave immediately following the baptism to get to the next service. The Sister who was baptized was a bit nervous before the service, but she was pleased and excited following the baptism. She said to Renee that now she has a family.
Fortunately it ended with just enough time to drive to Sarasota for a baptism in the Beneva Branch. We arrived on time, but the people involved with that service were even more delayed than the first service. So I was stressing for nothing. Although it started way late, the service was fine. The brother who was baptized seemed excited, though I couldn't talk with him because he only speaks Spanish.
