A special baptism was held last Saturday, as Pierce Bringhurst was able to baptize his good friend, Hunter Soares at our Lancaster chapel. Hunter, (6'2" tall) has been coming to church with the Bringhurst family for several months - and had also been receiving the missionary discussions. Then, last week, Pierce turned 16, and on the day of Hunter's baptism, Pierce was confirmed a priest in the Aaronic priesthood - so he was able to perform the baptism for his good friend Hunter. Family, friends and various members & ward leaders were gathered in abundance for the ordinance, and warmly cheered Pierce as he brought Hunter up and out of the water! A wonderful spiritual experience for all & a sweet new beginning for Hunter!
