Andrews Baptism

Andrew was baptized in June! It was a FANTASIC day! He was SO excited and had been preparing himself for quite a while. I must admit I was worried he wouldn't be prepared, but, as his special day got closer....he was! He had an amazing primary teacher who taught him and got him excited about the gospel and reading his scriptures and the prospect of being baptized!
He was So excited for this opportunity that HE called the Executive Secretary to set up the appointment with the Bishop. He helped me make invitations to give out to the people he wanted to attend and HE asked the special men in his life to stand in the circle when he received the Holy Ghost.(after we are baptized, men who hold the priesthood lay their hands on our head and we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, an amazing gift that we get to have with us ALWAYS) What an AMAZING young man!!!
Andrew and his Dad. He was SO excited!
Ben was super excited for his brother too and wanted in on the action!
