Several months ago in school Pierson and Maylin learned about baptism. After I read a great explanation of what it was and what it means both kids said they wanted to be baptized.
They wanted Jesus in their lives!
Of course my heart was happy and was very excited that is was their choice!
Pierson said he wanted to ask Mark, our preacher, to baptize them so we waited patiently until he finally got the nerve to do so. (He kept changing his mind but because he originally said he wanted to do it by himself we waited it out and let him ask in his time...)
Thanks to everyone who came. It truly meant a lot to Adam and I. It meant even more for the kids. They still talk about it and the people who came. (and if I am being honest, the gifts that came...)
I pray they will look back on this day in their lives knowing how important this decision was/is in their life.
For each of you who stood up with us we all cherish your love and support. Being there speaks more than you will ever know! You are ALL a blessing to us as we know you will be there to help us love our kids unconditionally, nurture them through good times and bad times and most importantly you will be examples that guide them in their walk of faith.
Much much love!
God please help my children develop servants hearts, that they may serve wholeheartedly, 'as to the Lord, and not to men.' (Eph. 6:7) And help them to develop a heart for missions, a desire to see your glory (declared) among the nations, Your marvelous deeds among all peoples. (Psalm 96:3)
