Tessa was so excited to be baptized. She loved everything about it, going with Breea to take pictures for the invite, the white dress, turning 8, inviting everyone to come, but......was terrified of the interview with her bishop. When Bill told her that she had to come in for her baptismal interview he added that some people dont pass (Im sure not true) Not sure if he wanted her to make sure she was prepared or just teasing her, but all afternoon she was a mess, even tears. On the way there she asked "What was that M priesthood called" and she kept trying to say "Melchizedek", but when it came time, all that came out was "Mizukawa" which are members of our ward. Bill took her in and then he asked me to come in at the end. Some of the things she said were: When Bishop asked "Why do you want to be baptized?" she said "I want to have the Holy Ghost" and "Heavenly Father wanted everyone to be good and Satan wants us to fight and be bad". Bishop asked "What does it mean to take upon us his name" and she said "To act like Heavenly Father and not to be rude like Satan" As we talked about being able to repent Tessa said "Your the bishop so you like to repent" We were both amazed at how much she knew and how prepared she was. She has great primary teachers for sure.
We had a luncheon at the church right afterwards and had lots of family a friends there to celebrate, even baby STELLA made it in the womb.
