The Girls....

A friend gave the kids traditional Ethiopian clothing today.  Glori was so excited she came home and tried her dress on right away.  The blue and gold accented dress is really beautiful.  Even Sophi was excited about her dress.

Eli's Special Day!

Eli was baptized today in Addis Ababa....Sunday, January 31, 2010 after our regular church meetings.
He was very excited. Mitch performed the baptismal ordinance and confirmation.  Eli gave a wonderful testimony about how good he felt after he was baptized and recited the 4th Article of Faith for the congregation.  Glori passed out the baptism programs and Mom gave a talk on baptism.  Sophi even decided to participate by taking her first 3 steps during the confirmation.  We were blessed all around today and very thankful.  Our small Bekulobet Branch uses a green, rectangular tank filled with water for a baptismal font.  It was not as cold as Eli and Mitch were originally preparing for.  Our family friend Dirk Bater was in town from Germany and attended the baptism as well.  The primary children helped sing songs and then we enjoyed some cake and brownies for refreshments.  It was a memorable time for our family and our little branch! Ofcourse Mitch and I were emotional and very pleased that Eli choose to be baptized.  Enjoy the pictures!
