Elder Kirkham conducted the baptism because none of the branch presidency was available to conduct the service.
These are the eight candidates and the two baptisers. The community of Harbel is located on a rubber tree plantation owned by Firestone, the largest rubber tree plantation in the world. Notice in the background, the rows of rubber trees.
The baptisms took place in a small reservoir on the rubber tree plantation, a few minutes drive. It was a beautiful setting.
After their baptism, those baptized rested at this bus stop across the street from where they were baptized in the reservoir. When all were there, we invited those who wanted, to bear their testimonies. Several bore strong testimonies, expressing profound gratitude that they finally were able to be a member of the true Church.
