I’m so touched to pass along this thank you, from the father who wrote in asking for advice about baptism and his 9 year-old autistic child.
After all the good advice from your readers, we once had again a good talk with Laurens. He still wanted to proceed, so we talked to our branch president.
He was OK with it too and we invited the full time missionaries (since Laurens is already 9 years) and they teached him the normal lessons. I was always with my boy, in order to “translate” the things the missionaries said and explained, giving more explanation.
Last weekend Laurens had his baptism interview with the branch president and with the zone leaders. Each time they allowed me to sit with hi mto help when needed, but I hardly had to do anything.
If anybody would need to see the Holy Spirit at work… well, I’ve seen it. Definitely… Our Laurens is just been diagnosed again with a degree of autism much harder then anybody ever expected, but when we talk about the Gospel, we do have a sincere connection with him. You should hear his prayers…
So I just wanted to let you know (and your readers too) that thanks to your and theirs help, Laurens will be baptised next Saturday.
Thanks to all of you for helping us.
I hope that our Heavenly Father blesses you all.
Met vriendelijke groeten,
