What a day of rejoicing!!

Micaiah came to me with tears- saying "I am ready to be baptized!" It amazed me, because Andrea and I have been praying for guidance with him and haven't pursued this with him a whole lot. We were being cautious not to push at the age of 12. I asked, "How do you know you are ready?" His reply was, "I want to be sure when He comes back that I will be with Him."
I asked him to explain baptism and its significance- he gave me the most beautiful description of surrendering and submission I had ever heard. He mentioned that in his daily reading and from sermons that he recognized the need to be saved from his sins and united with Christ. I knew he was ready- so this morning he was baptized into Christ in the Columbia River.
I ask you to pray for him in his new walk!
