Fixing and Filling the Baptism Font
After lunch we came back to fix the font and begin filling it for the baptism which is scheduled to take place after Church. The font needed some cleaning and the bottom had to be straighten out.
I pitched in and helped the elders with this task. The plastic lining was not centered and it took a bit of muscle work to get it in the correct spot.
We began to fill the font and then went on several appointments. We came back about two hours later it was just over half full. We decided that we could fill the balance if we started the water when Church began it would be full enough.
When we arrived in on Sunday the font was empty. There are so many holes in the liner that we had to start all over. Luckily we had 3 hours to refill it.
