Ladybug's Baptism ~ Abu Dhabi

After Church and the Church pot-luck we headed out to Abu Dhabi for Ladybug's baptism. She was baptized a Member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the 1st (and currently only) LDS building in the Middle East! We are so grateful that my mom was able to come all the way from Arizona to be with Ladybug! I wish I had my camera when the 2 little ones saw grandma in the car after I picked her up from the airport. They were so SURPRISED! I am impressed that I managed to keep here visit a secret from them for so long! We are also grateful that many of the members of our little Al Ain Branch (a small unit of the LDS church, similar to a ward) made the almost 2 hour drive to support Ladybug as well.

We are very proud of Ladybug and her decision to be baptized. Her daddy performed her baptism (she had to be "dunked" twice as her little toes tried to escape the first time) and her confirmation. Unicorn gave the talk on baptism and Grandma gave the talk on the Holy Ghost. She had members of the Primary (organization for children) Presidency give the prayers and the songs she choose were: "When I am Baptized" and "I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ". The children from our Branch also sang a special song, "Families Can Be Together Forever". It was a really nice program.
