After class Matthew said he wanted to be baptized. When I asked him why, he said "to wash away my sin". I knew that was a teacher talking and not him. So we talked about it and I read him a few stories in the Bible about baptism. We also prayed about it. He said he still wanted to do it and I said OK.
The day before the baptism he was talking to someone about the baptism. This is how he described it: "Baptism is when you go under water and your old you is washed away. You come up with a new you and a bigger love for God and everyone will know it."
Unfortunately, my camera decided to act up. A wonderful family at church stepped in and took some pictures for us. I'll post those when I get them. Here are a few that I was able to take.
Sorry about the red eye. I'm not sure how to fix it.
Thank you to our family and friends who were with us to celebrate!
