Jared's Baptism in Gadsden

Jared and his companion had a baptism this past Sunday. It was a gentleman, Phil, that Jared has been teaching since he arrived in Gadsden. Phil was a friend of Quinton's who is also a recent convert. We've been anticipating this baptism and were excited to see it come to fruition. Jared has remained busy in Gadsen and enjoys serving there.

"After church Phil had his baptism. The baptism went great. Quinton baptized him and Elder Bybee and I were in the font to help with the baptism since both legs are prosthetics. We had to dunk him twice because the first time his hands didn’t go under. Afterwards he asked me to confirm him. That was really cool. Usually missionaries don’t do the confirmation and it was my first time. The spirit was really strong and comforted me."
