It was a very special day when we baptized Beck. He is such a happy boy and so excited to receive the Holy Ghost and become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! He had a rough week to start though! He had a nasty flu bug which had made him sick for about 5 days prior to his baptism. We all thought he would be better but the night before the baptism, he was really sick. He was also so worried why he wasn’t getting better. We asked him if he wanted a blessing and he immediately said “YES! I know it will make me feel better!” So we called Uncle Trent and had him come over. Shortly after the blessing, Beck was up running around and feeling back to his old self. He woke up the next morning and was ready to go be baptized!
It was a wonderful morning. He was baptized with one other boy in another ward. The 2 missionaries spoke and did an ok job. I thought they could have made it more kids oriented and were a bit too serious for the 8 yr old boys. After that, we went into the baptism room and watched him get baptized. Then, while we were waiting for him to get dressed, Ellek played his guitar as well as Klein on the piano. They did a superb job! I was so proud of them! It was during this time that people that came were writing congratulations and well wishes for Beck. After he came in, our Bishop spoke and did a wonderful job. After that we too pictures and everyone came over to have lunch. It was a lovely day! Poor little Beck started to feel sick once again after the baptism was over. I felt so bad for him. He wanted so badly to play and eat with everyone but wanted to go lay in his bed. It was great though that he felt good enough to be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost. I was so proud of him and the great choice he made. I love you soooooo much Beck a boo Speedracer!!!
