This past Saturday, there was a baptism for a little Marshallese girl named Bina. I got to interview her and she was really enthusiastic about getting baptized. Her dad was going to do it but unexpectedly said that he didn't want to anymore. So Friday night she called me up and asked if I would baptize her in Marshallese. I got the opportunity to baptize Bina Riklon a member of the church and I didn't even mess up my Marshallese! If that isn't a miracle I don't know what is!
I'm so very thankful for the Power of the Priesthood. I have seen miracles come about from the faith and authority of worthy Priesthood holders. I'm so blessed to have grown up in a household where it was present and to have a father willing to live worthy to bless his family. Having this restored authority on the earth has blessed countless lives and will continue to bless my life and the lives of those who are willing to have faith in the divine origin it comes from. Thank you all for the amazing letters and emails you have sent this week. I hope you all have a blessed week!
Love, Elder Leavitt
