The Very Same Day
The very same day that the young man received a special remembrance in Primary was the day he got baptised.
His father was the one who baptised him. The special thing was that his father had been a member of the Church less than a month. Elder McKinley had baptised the father and now the father had received the priesthood and was ready to perform that same ordinance for his younger son.
The older son had borne his testimony a few months earlier about his father joining the Church and the whole family was praying for this to happen.
“I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalms 22:27
