I worked as a baptizer in the Ogden Temple - figured it was the only way I could serve and still stay awake. Never boring - get bored and you drown. I finally had to quit - couldn't stay quiet that long. After a while you get tired of old men telling you to be quiet.
But it was great for the time I was there. Maybe do it again sometime, but not soon.
