As a Little Child

Said the Savior:

"And again I say unto you, ye must repent, and be baptized in my name, and become as a little child, or ye can in nowise inherit the kingdom of God."

This week we had the great honor of witnessing the baptism of Maribel Sanabria, who with childlike submission braved her fears and entered the waters of baptism to make sacred covenants with her Father in Heaven. What a privilege to take part in such a momentous event! This truly is the way, the only way to inherit eternal life.

What's a baptism without cake?
Post-baptism - The rain cleared up and the sun came out just in time to take some more pictures!

Our P-day trip to the River Piraí with Maribel and her sisters and cousins.  This river has been the site of many baptisms in the past.

Frutilla! (somewhere between raspberries and strawberries - found on our walk to the Piraí)
