It's not very often we are able to attend baptisms because of our travel schedule, but this was a rare occasion that allowed us to go. The elders baptized a 14 year old girl. Both her parents and a family friend were there to witness it. The mother is currently reading the Book of Mormon and the father is showing a little interest, too. It was a twelve year old ward member who invited her to church and sat in on the lessons with the missionaries.
The elders were surprised when several teenage students from the English class showed up to witness the baptism. Prior to that, they hadn't shown any interest in religion.
The word L'Aquila means eagle. We are all hoping for things to soar in L'Aquila.
