What a joy it is to see your child come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ!
Karis made the decision to follow Jesus a couple of months ago at an after school Bible time led by some long time missionaries in this part of the world. They part-time teach at our school and attend the church start, Crossway, that we've been a part of. We thought Karis was close to making a decision when she did just that!
I was so happy to learn that our church was going to hold a baptism once the weather warmed.
You know it's Europe when the couple just over from your baptism site are topless! Ha!
We even had a swimmer pop up in our little cove while we were singing! Ha!
There were 5 people to be baptized.
We did a little singing first.
Asking those important questions!
So awesome to have daddy baptize his girl!
I chuckled at this photo! I told her she looks like a little chipmunk! She laughed and said "It was FREEZING!" Ha!!
Our daughter and sister in Christ!
Afterward we headed to our pastor's home for a cookout!
And like any good church function, we had some good eats!!
We rounded it off by heading back to the water hole/baptistry for a short swim with a couple other families. Karis earlier said it was freezing and then wanted to go back for more!! Ha!
What a special, wonderful, memory making day!!
