Matt's Baptism

Matt was baptised a few weeks ago. He asked about it a couple of times during the school year, so I figured he was ready. We have a fountain in front of our church, so that's where they did it. I thought I'd share the pictures.


This is our children's pastor, Pastor James, talking with Matt.

Here they are praying right before.

Yey Matt!

I hope everybody has a great weekend! =o)

Nothing gets me more pumped than to see a young person come to know Christ! I love it!
