A Baptism in Grande Bassam

2019-10-26 Baptism Grande-Bassam (1)This morning we traveled with Pres Binene to Grande Bassam for a baptismal service.  The drive took us along the Atlantic shore for much of the 45 minutes we traveled.  It’s interesting to see some more of the country here and watch the industrious people here.  There is work to be done, and everywhere people are doing it!    We arrived at the Grande Bassam stake center at 9:00 and waited for the missionaries and members to arrive. 2019-10-26 Baptism Grande-Bassam (2)2019-10-26 Baptism Grande-Bassam (4)2019-10-26 Baptism Grande-Bassam (5)The baptism “room” is open on both sides, with a nice font at the front and changing rooms behind it.2019-10-26 Baptism Grande-Bassam (3)Five new members were baptized today!  The missionaries were excited and came from the surrounding areas to participate.2019-10-26 Baptism Grande-Bassam (7)2019-10-26 Baptism Grande-Bassam (8)
