Maya was so excited for her eighth birthday because she got to be baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. One of her best friends Clara tautkus is only a day younger than her and so they got to be baptized right after each other. It was a really sweet day. Nana and Papa Jen and Juliet all flew out for the baptism and all her Halverson cousins and grandma and grandpa Halverson were all there too! Maya played “When I am Baptized” on the piano and Nana gave the talk on the Holy Ghost. Maya smiled the whole day. After her baptism she was asked in the primary program why she was glad she got baptized. She said she was happy to follow Jesus and be baptized like He was. We are so proud of her!
