Camilla and Xavier
I would like you to meet Camilla and Xavier (seen here with their little boy David -note he is wearing Kiwi Booties). Camilla is our Doctor and friend, she is as cute as a button, and thankfully speaks very good English. She has been baptized now for a couple of years and her husband, who is an orthopedic surgeon is now studying. Interesting story with Camilla - she was searching for the truth for many years and even got baptized into a evangelist church when she was 16. Her mother was furious and grounded her when she found out. Not too long after that - witnesses came to her door and the Mum asked if the witnesses would allow a girl to just get baptized like that. Well of course they explained that baptism is not a spur of the moment thing and it takes time and study to come to that decision. The mum was impressed with that so allowed Camilla to study the bible with them. Xavier started studying when their little boy (Gabriel, not the new baby) said one day as his mother was getting him ready for preaching - "why doesn't Papa come with us?" That comment made Xavier realize that he should do something. Such a lovely couple and whenever we need anything medically, they bend over backwards to help us out. Just hope we don't need their services too many more times!
