Easter Sunday/Gomani Baptisms

Saturday morning we had the baptism of the Gomani family in Liwonde.  We had it at the swimming pool at the Hippo Lodge.  It was great and they were so happy!   They had several relatives and friends come with them to watch.  Also one of the Elders from the CCAP Church at their Village.  We had to set up extra chairs as more people arrived.
Today they were confirmed at Church and some of the family came to that as well.   We had an excellent meeting and a great Sunday School class that Elder Bullock taught to clarify some questions they had from last week's lesson.   There were 80 in attendance today - the most we have had so far.  
Aaron Benjamin was ordained to the office of an Elder and we brought him back to Blantyre with us so that he can work with one of our full time missionaries until a new Elder comes in 6 or 7 weeks.   We will get his mission application sent in shortly and he will be anxiously awaiting his call.    There were also several interviewed today by the Branch President from Blantyre for priesthood advancements.  The Liwonde Group falls under Blantyre 1st Branch.    All in all, it was a great day!!
