My Granddad, Reid Brooks, was baptised and confirmed a member of the church last Sunday, July 19, 2009. To put it mildly, he suprised us with his request Thursday night (just 3 days before). My Grandmother and her children have waited for this miracle for about 50 years. He supported four children on missions, but never attended a church meeting or baptism. Just last week Blaine had commented that he needed to get baptised. There was a wonderful spirit felt at the baptismal service with members from the Pampa ward present and also nonmember family attending. My Dad carried his Dad down into the water and preformed the baptism. Then carried him out again. It was such a sweet experience. I know the rest of our family wanted to be there. Granddad knows you wanted to be there too.
