Josiah ordained a deacon

Josiah has reached that turning point in his life, a major milestone. He finished working on his Faith in God booklet and was found worthy to hold the Aaronic Priesthood . I may have been in lots of pain, but I was there and fortunate enough to ordain him.

I know many people that aren’t familiar with our faith find it amazing that a young man of 12 can hold the office while others wait the majority of their lives before they can attain such a title. For those that are interested in what a deacon is and their responsibilities, please refer to this article, “The Role of a Deacon” found in the New Era, May 1974, p.8

Congrats, Josiah. You deserve it!

Unfortunately, we learned late last night that he would be set apart today so we didn’t have lots of time to invite family to attend. Many apologies, we would have loved for you to be there.
