ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

A few weeks after Elder D. Keith Rhoton of Lakeside, Ariz., arrived on his mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he gave a family-to-family copy of the Book of Mormon to Geraldo Gomez, a 13-year-old boy.

Geraldo was baptized last Jan. 23, and eight days later he received the Aaronic Priesthood. Later, through his example, his family became interested in the Church, were taught to pray, given the missionary discussions, and baptized Feb. 20. "They are a strong, humble family," Elder Thoton said. "I know all five will stay firm in the Church." - Dr. and Mrs. Harold L. Snow, Springville, Utah
