How Davinia Follows Jesus

alt text

Davinia follows Jesus by going to church. She likes to hear people’s testimonies. “I feel happy to learn so many things in Primary,” she says.

One time she went with her family to visit the Cochabamba Bolivia Temple. Her parents and brothers went inside to do baptisms for her family. While Davinia and her cousin sat in the waiting room, she felt the Spirit. “I felt happy because I know the temple is the house of God,” she says.

Davinia is excited to do baptisms in the temple one day. Soon a temple will be built near her home! She is preparing by going to church, reading the scriptures, and praying.
