Cooper was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today. Jon performed both ordinances beautifully.
When I asked Cooper what made this day so special and what he will remember most, he said, “I felt the Spirit.” He was teary-eyed and so happy when he was given the gift of the Holy Ghost. As the speakers delivered their messages, they spoke directly to Cooper, calling him by name, and he shook his head up and down as he listened intently. It was a sweet occasion!
Afterwards, family from both sides gathered for lunch, including cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. It was a wonderful way to spend time together and celebrate Cooper’s choice to follow Christ!
