More Baptisms in Dedeo

In October Eric was happy to baptize a sweet young boy named Kinglove and a young man named Rieuo Rieuo. It was well attended, and nine investigators came to his baptism. It was a wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with others.  Eric is serving with Elder Eyre as a Zone Leader in Dedeo*.

Eric writes that he "has come to love, and treasure, the scriptures. I love learning the stories, and the history that they contain. I love just having that deeper understanding, and the [revelation] that I receive as I search." He gave this advice to the young and women preparing for a mission in his home ward: "READ Preach My Gospel, and enjoy the scriptures. Make it a time desirable above all else. It is the time when you get the Spirit and escape the world. It's great."

* Dededo is the most populated village in the United States territory of Guam. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Dededo's population was just under 45,000 in 2010. The village is located on the coral plateau of Northern Guam.
