Baptism in the ocean

Today was our first experience of having a baptism in the beautiful ocean. Marie Hetley, a 12 year old, in the Highgate Branch - was baptized by Elder Conder - from Lehi, Utah who has been on his mission 2 weeks! It was a beautiful day and she was so cute - her mother was very proud of her. She is a single mom with Maria and then a 6 year old son. The Russells car broke down so we took him with the baptismal clothes the 60 km to Highgate. Neat experience - she was a typical 12 year old and started swimming after she was baptized! I got to give her a towel as she came back to the beach. She will be confirmed tomorrow in Church - isn't she beautiful?
