Beautiful Baptisms

We were beaming from ear to ear on Sunday. Something that can only be attributed to the Glory of God happened. Three people were baptized. Ashely Kidder, an MK was baptized. She is such a sweet girl with a tender heart to the Lord, and we are so happy she made that step. The other two were our good friends Robert and Nadine. God has captured their hearts in a mighty way. John and I are praising the Lord. We can not describe the joy we feel in our hearts, it is only the joy that the Lord can give. Seeing them grow in the Lord and put their faith in Jesus has been an indescribable encouragement from our Heavenly Father. I am finding myself at a loss for words, so I will let the pictures do the talking. Please take a moment to offer a prayer of thanksgiving to God for His wonderful works in the village of Gales Point Manatee.

Nadine and I. She has become such a great friend.



Robert’s Baptism. He is saying “Yes, I follow Jesus Christ!” Amen!



Raised to walk in a new life with Him! Thank you Lord.
