This week we had 7 baptisms at Fort Jackson! Yes 7 of them! It was amazing! Miracles just continue to occur there! (Look at photos)
Those who were baptized: Pvt’s: Reynolds, Guo, Johnsey, Pfeifferm Faulk, Mendez, and Winfield.
Here is a quote from Elder Richard L. Evans:
“A prophet of God has said: “Men are that they might have joy” – a joy that includes a fullness of life, a life dedicated to service, to love and harmony in the home, and the fruits of honest toil – an acceptance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ – of it’s requirements and commandments.
Only in these will you find true happiness, the happiness which doesn’t fade with the lights and the music and the crowd.”
I know that this is so true!
Also, Specialist Guo got baptized too! She was the one who spoke Chinese and English! She is so sweet! I love her!
Fort Jackson is the best, because everyone in basic training has to live the Word of Wisdom and Law of Chastity for 10 weeks! This really helps for interviews and worthiness. (In order for someone to be baptized, they must be living the WOW for 1 week and the LOC.
I am grateful to get to serve here with so many missionaries and soilders. It is such a group effort to help everyone to prepare to be baptized! We can’t do it without each other and the Lord!
