Michael's Baptism

After we came home from Bulgaria, we figured it would be a while before our triplets would learn enough English so we could teach them about the gospel. However, a friend introduced us to a Bulgarian sister missionary who is serving her mission in Utah. She has been able to skype with all of the triplets multiple times and after a few weeks, Michael was ready to be baptized.

It has been glorious for me to hear him speak about his love for the gospel of Jesus Christ. He has already received answers to prayers and feels the Holy Ghost testify of truth. I could not be more happy for him. He is planning to serve a mission and is eager to share the gospel with those around him. 

Michael requested white chocolate cupcakes for his baptism.

Daddy came in to help decorate a few.

My handsome husband and my handsome oldest son!

Ready to be baptized!

A Red-letter day for the Pierce Family!

Michael's friend, K, came to show her support.

The program went very well! Iryna led the music and I played the piano. Bryan C gave a talk on baptism, while Sister Kolarova translated over skype. Tyler baptized him and then I sang "I am a child of God" in Bulgarian. Tyler gave a talk on the Holy Ghost. K gave the closing prayer. We had an ice cream bar with cupcakes for dessert. We are thankful for everyone who came to support Michael! He was confirmed in church the following day.
