Camping/Beach Trip

Jacob & Daddy setting up camp
They did it! I love this picture (below)! My Love reading his Bible on the beach. It doesn't get better than that!
We had a great time on our 1st camping trip to the beach. We all agree that beach camping is a better fit for us than mountain camping...for many reasons. My #1 reason is less bugs. Plus visiting the beach during the day was a hit with the kids. I could do without the sand, but it was fun seeing them have so much fun. I can't wait for next summers camping trip to the beach.

Baptism July 2009

Two weeks ago our church group
here in Sanger had a baptism. 8 people were baptised in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It was a joyous event!

John had the privilege of baptising our two oldest kids, Jacob & Madison. What a wonderful day this was!

What is Christian Baptism?
Christian baptism is immersion in water as a public statement of one’s new identity in Christ, having received Him by faith as Savior and Lord. Baptism does not save a person. Rather, baptism is the first act of obedience for one who has been saved. The model given to us in the Bible is that baptism immediately follows conversion.
“Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.” (Acts 2:41)
