Ninety-nine Year Old Woman Was Baptized
We had the privilege of attending Davanjarjaal's baptism. She is a ninety-nine year old woman with a sweet sparkle.
She received a wheelchair from DIC this year and up until then, she wasn't a member of the Church, so during Church one of her family, who were all members of the Church, would stay home from Church with her to keep her company. One day she said, "There's no reason for anyone to stay home now; why don't you just take me with you, then no one will have to stay home." So they did, she felt the Spirit, asked for missionaries to teach her, and decided to be baptized.
She told her daughter, "I want to get it right before I die."
It was really a special baptism and after she bore her testimony and said that she was glad she had been baptized.
