Reese's Baptism/Mother's day
So, Mother's day was amazing for many, many reasons this year! Number one, Reese was getting baptized!!!
She asked to be baptized and take part in the Communion services a few months ago. So, Johann and I talked to her about the sacraments, and when she had a good understanding about what they meant and why we do them and could explain for herself what they meant to her; we talked to our Pastor and Chaplain and they arranged for her baptism.
And, as if this couldn't have been any more special; Granny and Grampy were in town from California to witness AND it was Mother's day!
Here are some pictures of this momentous occasion! Congratulations Reese for following in the footsteps of Jesus. My prayer for you is that this is just the beginning of your discipleship and that your heart will always follow after our Father!
"Go ye therefore and teach all Nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the ends of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:19-20
