One Year-Half Way Mark!!

Congrats to my eldest for making it to his ONE YEAR mark of serving a mission in Switzerland! We are so happy he has learned the language and customs. He's happy and doing very well. The weekend before Christmas, he and his companion had their first baptism! It may have taken a whole year to find this one awesome young man, but we hear it was well worth it. This baptism was attended by dozens of young primary children and so many happy ward members!

CONGRATS on the one year mark, i'm glad he is loving Switzerland, it's such a beautiful country. Do you plan on coming over when he's done?
Cute background!

Wooohoo!! One year must be oozing with pride!!

Even if a missionary never baptizes one person they will have planted the seed for numerous others and that's just as important as the baptisms!

But waiting that long, that baptism had to be extra sweet for all involved!! congrats to him!
