This picture was taken December 16, at the baptism of Werner Funke by Elder Frank. Bruder Frunke's 11 year old daughter is also pictured. About 3 1/2 weeks ago Bruder Funke came into the Center one Thursday evening as we were preparing for the meal after Institute. We assumed that he was the father of one of the Stake youths who were having a rehearsal for the production of the musical "Saturday's Warrior". In our conversation with him we realized that this was his first time ever in our church. About 13 years ago he had been visited by missionaries and given a Book of Mormon. He had read it and believed it to be true and wanted to learn more so we called the young elders and he has been attending church and other functions with his daughter, has had the lessons and committed to baptism. He commented to us last week that he wasn't used to so much goodness. The service today was a very spiritual experience.
