I'm so happy! Last Saturday Samantha was baptized and given the gift of the Holy Ghost. :)
Everything went really well, and luckily for her, the water in the font was warm. Both of her Grandmas were able to give talks for her program because she was the only kid in our ward getting baptized for the day. It was nice!
Our bishop conducted and he also shared this spotlight about Samantha that she and I filled out that morning:
