Yes, you are looking at angels. This was a special day in Ponferrada. Pte. Garnelo is baptizing his wife after 10 years of being in the church and praying for her to accept the gospel. It was such a special evening we felt privileged to be a part of.
This sweet sister on the left, Luz Maria is from Ecuador and was married to a member. She too decided to be baptized and they shared this night together.
Two couples becoming united in the gospel. After the baptism Pte. Garnelo spoke of the day, in a year, when both couples can go together to the temple to be sealed. It was a glorious night filled with many smiles and many tears of joy.
These wonderful missionaries, l. to r. Elder Woods and Hansen, the Garnelo Family, Me and Pte. Clegg and Elder Rodriquez. I am sure there are many missionaries out there who know Esther and I hope they can share in the joy of this special day.
Finally, after the baptism, I just couldn't resist a picture of the children's curiosity about the "big blue whale" that is used in our small capillas. It takes all afternoon for the missionaries to get ready. This branch is filled with children, some from Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Spain to mention a few. A dear rama that is filled with much love and joy at the baptism of two precious daughters of God.
