Baptisim and Adoption Hopes
Well we are going to be baptized at the end of this month into our church and become members of the Saskatoon LDS church. We are excited for this and glad to be finally joining the church. It's funny my husband and I were talking about the LDS church and it is the only church we have ever encountered where to become a member we were not asked to make any drastic changes to our life the only changes have been small superficial things like respecting the Sabbath day and not drinking coffee or any tea that comes from the tea leaf. We are also continually amazed at how the church came to us when we needed them the most and how for some reason we were willing to accept them at that moment. They have been the greatest blessing to my family and I hope to one day be able to return the favor to another family in need.
During one of our recent visits with the missionaries we discovered that they also offer adoption services here in Canada too and we will be pursuing an adoption through them when we are eligible, we have to be members for a year to earn temple recommends and then we can apply so maybe in a few years we will be able to add a new family member to household. That is very exciting because in our province our only choice is Family Services and it is not easy nor do you usually end up with a healthy child and definitely not an infant. Where as through the LDS church we may have a good chance at finding a healthy infant to join our family!
We are truly excited to see where our life goes after becoming members of the church and all the blessing that come after receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost! This year has already been such a blessing to us in many ways bringing new hope and opportunity to our family! I hope that someday all of you will have a chance to experience the blessings of God as well for your life and your family. Please if you have a moment visit the LDS site and hear the message of the Gospel.
