Jacob's Baptism!!

Today we celebrated Jacob's new birth into a living hope! After studying for a couple of months he decided Monday to give his life to Christ. The owner of the local pool was happy to let us use it again and Heather and I baptized Jacob while surrounded by his family, team and church. There were 21 people there besides our family to celebrate with him. Several families joined us for lunch afterwards and at our church gathering tonight the men laid hands on him and prayed, he took his first communion and we gave him a sports-themed New Testament with notes and underlined passages from members of the church. It was a full, beautiful day. Thanks for your prayers and encouragement!
