Israel's Baptism 10-9-11

Israel was baptized with his friend Makayla Wilkey at 1pm church. Bishop Douglas conducted, Grandma Hall talked on Baptism, Daddy baptized Israel, then Gary Wilkey talked on the Holy Ghost. Israel was confirmed a member of the church and given the gift of the Holy Ghost by Grandpa Hall. We sang I am a Child of God and Baptism. I played the piano and Spencer Walton conducted the music. It was a really special day and we were so glad for all the people that came and gave our family support. The RS room was full. Israel asked his good friend Ben Adams to say the closing prayer and Bishop Douglas was a little confused when he announced it-it was cute.

Of his baptism Israel, who has been scared since sunbeams about getting baptized since you have to be fully immersed, said it felt so good he wanted to do it again. He was so happy and so were Dad and I. We're proud of his decision to follow Jesus Christ.

We love you Israel!
