Our First Baptism




This past Sunday we had our first baptism. It was a historic day for our church. It marked the first time that we were able to use our new baptistry and also the first time that I was given the honor to baptize. We were blessed to have 13 candidates for baptism. There were 11 kids and 2 adults. My first victim...er...I mean baptizee was a young boy named Jerome. Everything went really well and all 13 of them made it out ok. The only minor setback was that we found a leak in the baptistry. Thankfully, most of the candidates were shorter (ever tried to baptize at low tide?) and there weren't any problems. It was an exciting day and we were very blessed. We pray that all of those who were baptized will continue to follow and obey God in whatever He has for them.
