“I find myself praying that the memory of that day will stay in the minds of those baptized for many years to come. It is quite a spectacle when you think about it! A person willingly stands in an icy cold creek with tubers and swimmers all around, and agrees to let someone push them under the water (and, hopefully, pull them up again) while a whole lot of folks watching this thing bust out in applause and singing! That’s whacky! No wonder so many people prefer to be baptized in a church. It’s a lot more private! But could it be more fun?
“Remember to pray for Diana Eric, Leyton, Grace and Viviana! Pray that Sunday’s whacky, wonderful scene will stick in their minds, encouraging them in their commitment to follow Jesus, and reminding them that they are not alone in the journey! May they know the presence of the Spirit and the support of God’s people always!”
