[Editor's note: We received an email from a sister in our ward who is serving in the Sacramento Mission. She wrote the following in her blog about seeing Elder Simons at a baptism...]
|Sister Farr and Elder Simons|
"I was invited to a baptism today of a young woman who had began investigating the Church with a friend in the Roseville mission. She decided to be baptized and to attend in her own Young Singles branch in our mission, so she finished her lessons with our office elders.
When I arrived at the baptism I discovered, to my delight, that she was being baptized by Elder Wilson Simons, of the Roseville Mission, and formerly of Corner Canyon 5th Ward! I can report firsthand that he looks great, performed without a hitch, and is thoroughly enjoying his mission.
His companion is from Orem, Utah, and the Bishop of the Young Singles Ward is related to the Smiths in Draper. I tell you, the Church is a close-knit family."
