Rockstin Peterson, 8-year-old son and middle child of Brett and Briette Peterson’s 5 kidlets, was baptized by his father and cofirmed by “Papa” Paul Peterson on Saturday, September 16 to become the newest member of the B7 Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Family traveled from as far away as northern Utah and southern California to be part of the momentous life event for young Rock.
Rockstin is a 2nd grader at Bloomington Elementary School where he, in addition to his ABC’s, is also learning Chinese. He loves to play basketball, soccer, ride his bike and do anything outside. Says his Mom Briette, “He loves his newfound friends, as we are new to the area by 6 months. He is a happy loving boy and we are blessed to have him as our son!”
In the words of President Gordon B. Hinckley, it is now the duty of the members of the Bloomington 7th Ward to help Rock "become a strong and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - a member who loves the Lord, who understands the gospel, who fellowships with the Saints and who partakes of the beauties and wonders of the gospel of Jesus Christ."
