Nate Comes for the Weekend

Nate flew in on Saturday morning because his friend Faby Lopez was getting baptized as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. She came over to our house by herself and drove over to the Stake house with Nate and I. A reception was being set up and it happened to be a friend of Nates -the former Katie Faires. Nate baptized Faby and when she was changing and putting on her make-up I asked why she decided to listen to the missionaries and she said she knew Nathan in high school and had gone to church with him and then when she was on her own she felt a void in her life. Both Nate and her friend Stephanie encouraged her to take the discussions and look into the church. It is interesting to note that her father is a minister of a church right here in town. He had been a Catholic and went searching as a young man and is working hard at his church now.
Faby is such a nice girl, it is easy to love her. Nate even confirmed her on Sunday just before he flew back to Arizona. We scooped Faby up with us on Friday night and took her to the wedding reception to see Katie and her new man. Then Faby and Nate went to San Francisco and Nate had to break into the house because no one would wake up to let him in. Is was so great to have him for a little bit and very nice to be a part of Faby's life for a few minutes.

That is cool that he came back to CA to baptize her.
