This little branch meets in this building. This is Sister Nanay Presca. She is 80+ years old.
A active member in this little branch and so sweet! She even spoke some English!We parked the cars and walked up a small hill and then down to the river. What a beautiful setting for a baptism.Before the ordinances took place, the Branch President and a couple of the older women washed his laundry in the river. . . . that was a new one for me. The little kids were all jumping in splashing and swimming. Then we had the baptisms of these 4 men. Elder Leishman is on the left.
We had a short meeting with songs and talks about baptism at the church and then we all traveled a couple of mile to the river where the baptisms took place. There was our car with 4 Elders and one of the baptismal candidates and then 2 tricycles with the rest of the people who attended.
It reminded me of our Savior being baptized in the river Jordan long ago.
Branch members attending the baptism ~ they were all in 2 tricycles!
