Baptism Day

Several months ago, EMN asked us (her parents) if she could be baptized. After talking with her to make sure she understood the process, prayer among all of us and consultation with our pastor, we decided to proceed and choose August 29th as the date. As the time got closer, she was definitely very excited and told everyone she knew what would be happening on that Sunday. We were honored to have Mike's parents here to help celebrate the day. As their 9th grandchild was baptized, she wore a slip to the baptismal gown that all the other grandchildren have worn on their baptism days. MTN has not yet been baptized but thinks 5 may be the magic age. We'll see how his faith develops.

Here are a few pictures from the day.
