I think it was also so a beautiful blessing because Gerald is so young. He is basically our age. So the gospel relates to us in our lives in a lot of the same ways. He is just 22 and it is awesome that he will have so many blessings to partake of. And will be able to bless his future family so much as a priesthood holder. He always gets a bit emotional when we promise blessings that he will receive for his future family with all of his sacrifices he is making now. Who knows.....the mission could even be in his plans. We have already told him we want him to join us for a few lessons with other investigators to help them with their doubts. He was more than excited. He started just laughing with joy as he said yes.
Hermana Parkin sang a song for the baptism and I played the piano for her.....okay that is kind of a lie. It would make my mom really happy but Hermana Parkin just recorded the song fist on the piano and I just had to push play. But I took advantage of the situation and put on a good show as if I was playing.
