Melissa turned 12 in April and thus became eligible to enter Young Women and to go to the Temple. Her first opportunity to do baptisms for the dead came this week when our Young Women's group went for our Tuesday activity.
We went to the Jordan River Temple. When she was finished, I asked her how she felt. She said, "When can we do it again?"
We only had two other girls come to do baptisms, but it was the first time for one of those girls too. It was a special day for all of us.
I'm glad she has a desire to go back to the temple. What a blessing to be able to go with her for her first time and watch see her doing baptisms in the temple.
