Baptism Invitation

From Parkway 2nd Ward Mission Leader, Brother Matthew Garbero:

Each of your Missionary Daughters had the blessing of teaching a student named Kerry Xiao while he was living in the Chesterfield area.

He is now attending UCLA. The Sister Missionaries there have just texted to inform me that a baptism date has been set for Saturday, November 15th.

Since your daughters are not able to attend or participate, I thought you as parents would like to attend in their place. I know it is a great distance to travel. However, because of Kerry's temporary move to Indianapolis to help his parent's get settled in their home there, the Mission President allowed them to Skype with Kerry and prepare him well before his arrival in California. This was highly irregular but due to the circumstances, he approved. 

They were blessed to see him accept the Gospel and the invitation to be Baptized. He had to move before they could see the process come to fruition.

I know it would mean great deal to them to see you pictured with Kerry as a way to show your support for their efforts.

I will provide each of you with the address of the meetinghouse and all the details you will need. 

Each of you is coming from Redding, CA; Ogden, UT; or the Phoenix/Gilbert areain AZ so it will be a distance to travel to UCLA. I just wanted to give you the chance to meet Kerry in person and share the joy your daughters felt as they taught.

I will be in touch.
