We had a picnic after church that day. This is Madelyne

and Zachary.

Tone and I were Baptized on October 12, 2008.
We both really feel and know that God is working in a mighty way in us and our family. Over the past year our lives have changed in numerous ways. The best way to describe it is said in the song Amazing Grace "....was blind but, now I see..."

For the both of us this was an act of obedience to The Lord.
And how special it was to be Baptized together.
We had decided to be
Baptized but, we were not sure when to do it. We kept waiting for the right time and place to do it. Tone said to me on Friday that we should get Baptized that weekend and I said " OK, we'll see."
I then went into our bedroom and grabbed the Bible. I opened the Bible and turned straight to this:

"How can man be born when he is old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!"
Jesus answered, " I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to Spirit.

I took it to Tone and said, "read this". He looked at me and said, "let's do it this Sunday!"

We both just took it as God's way of saying that it was time.

We give Thanks and Glory to God, for everything that He has blessed us with. And for all the amazing things He has and is doing in our lives and the lives of our extended family.
