Attending Our First Baptism

Last weekend we attended the baptism of one of the volunteers at the Self Reliance Center (SRC).  Ina (pronounced E-nah) Samuelu has been volunteering as a receptionist at the center for about the last 6 months.  She is very helpful keeping things organized in the reception room (we generally have 10-15 people at once in the room), controlling the use of the 6 computers, and being our translator at times.  She is married and has a 7 year old daughter.  Saturday was her baptism and Sunday she was confirmed a member of the Church and received the Holy Ghost.  For those not familiar with baptism in the LDS Church, this is the same as being baptized by water and the Spirit described in the New Testament (Acts 8:14-17).  We are very happy for her and are glad we will be able to fellowship her in the Gospel.

PS - You can see that Elder Roos has "gone Samoan" with his lava lava, which he wears all the time. He told me it's because he "outgrew" his slacks, but I think he just likes to wear them.
