Anna got baptized on Sunday. Here are some pictures of it.
Matt: baptized her, and as you can tell was very excited. Matt had our senior pastor, Pastor Dwight, pray for her and it was a very prophetic prayer.
In talking to Anna about why she wanted to get baptized and in teaching her about baptism I have realized that baptism is actually a very simple and at the same time a very big step in obedience. I think that God designed baptism to be simple to understand; as it is meant to be done after we except Him - it reminds me of child like faith. The simplicity of it is that God commands us to do it and we do. At the same time it is a huge act of obedience, while baptism does not save you it is an act of saying before witnesses that I have surrender my life to God - which doing that in public is a huge blow to the enemy. That is exactly what Anna did.
We are very proud of our little girl for wanting to be obedient!
