July 2: Martin gets to meet his godparents Tony and Becca. Good friends and former church members of ours here. They would have loved to attend the baptism of this guy but they’ve moved to Ohio last Summer and had to miss it. At least we got some time in when they were back visiting!

Martin is Baptized

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

May 7: We brought Martin to the font on a Thursday evening in a small service with a few families present. We thank Christ our Lord for the gift of new life and salvation he has received.

“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.” Roman 6

Abel Baptized – February 3

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

God has done this and it is marvelous in our eyes.
