Investigator commits to baptism. Thu, Oct 5, 2006.
10/05/2006. I accompanied the missionaries for their third lesson with a young adult man to whom I had given a Book of Mormon. He's been to Sunday church meetings three times so far.
At the first two lessons, he seemed positive about everything. And at the first lesson, he answered in the affirmative to the half-committal question "If you knew it was true, would you get baptized."
Today, he made an affirmation of believing the restored gospel and agreed to a baptism date next month. He's a shy man, but I did not detect any wishy-washiness in his answer. There was no pressure or cajoling on the part of the missionaries or myself. And I have no doubt that he wants to join the church on his own volition.
Sitting in with two righteous missionaries and an investigator who has received a spiritual witness of the message is a sacred thing. I felt priviledged to witness it, and be a part of it.
